Gutters and Metal Roofs

August 11, 2009 | Filed under: Misc, Roofing Answers

I was asked the following:
I would like to replace my existing shingled roof with metal.How are gutters attached to maintain the integrity of the metal? Thanx

My Answer:
You will want to use gutters that mount to the fascia board using brackets, rather than gutters that mount to the roof.

    You recently sent me info re metal roofs. A need we have is gutters integral with the roof. We’ve seen these on some commercial buildings and are interested in this combination. Is this possible?

      Thank you. Pretty much anything is possible. By “integral,” do you mean built-in to the roof, or just matching the roof? Either is possible. However, “built-in” gutters require some extra attention … chances are the gutter, for one reason or another, will not last as long as the roof … so you want to make sure that there is a way to replace them if necessary without tearing too much into the roof. Happy to consult with you on ways to do that. You can email me at
