Question gutters

WE NEED SOME HELP !!! WE HAVE A VICTORIAN STYLE HOME WITH A LARGE CURVED FRONT PORCH. WE NEED GUTTERS ON THIS PORCH, BUT HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DO THE CURVE. CAN ANYONE HELP? WE BOUGHT VINYL GUTTERS AND CAN DO THE STRAIGHT PART, BUT THE CURVE GOES ABOUT 13 FEET.

Curved gutters are not bought, they are custom made. Usually made of steel, not aluminum, and most any metal shop can make them. They need to know the degree of curve so they will fit properly. They will not fit into vinyl gutters. Good Luck.

Like jack said. A good sheet metal shop can make them up for you. You dont say what the curve is. I know that a good man on the gutter machine can get it to put out a small curve in the gutter. Ask around. dont know where you are but I would forget the Vinyl gutters. They dont hold up to good ED

the other guys are right about the sheet metal shop. however
if you are handy you can scrap the vinyl and get aluminum
k-style gutter and do the curve by cutting the gutter into
6" to 10" peices and overlapping them 1/2" all the way
around the curve. the length of your peices depends on the
curve( shorter peices for sharp curve and longer for gentle curve)
this probably should'nt be done unless you have experience.
i have done this installation 30-40 times here in n.c.good luck!

THANKS FOR ALL THE INFO... WE CALLED A PLACE AND HAD THE GUTTERS DONE IN SHEET METAL. THEY ARE ALL UP AND LOOK PRETTY GOOD. THEY DID THE CURVE LIKE YOU MENTIONED IN THE SMALL SECTIONS. THANKS AGAIN.
