e total linear footage of gutters that need to be positioned along the edges of your roof.
Downspouts are also taken into consideration. Downspouts that are for single-story houses typically measure 13 feet in length. For two-story homes the best option is to double the length to 26 linear feet.
Miters and end caps also should be taken into account. End caps can be found at the end of the gutter. The miters, which are 90-degree-shaped, link straight gutters to the corner of your home. End caps measure about one linear foot, and miters can be as long as the length of four feet.
