90% of our gutter installations are 6 inch rain gutters. Most homes today are large enough that the 6 inch rain gutter is a better option. 6 inch gutters handle more water and flush debris out better. Additionally 6 inch gutters often look better because they can be installed evenly with the bottom of fascia boards.
We most often install 5 inch gutters when replacing or repairing just a portion of the gutter system to match existing gutters or in homes with a smaller roof area when the homeowner prefers 5 inch.
