amount of slope

im putting new gutters on my house. im going to connect two 16 ft sections for a total of approxomately 28 ft. should i drain all to one end or make drains in both ends.thats a pretty long span. im seen some pretty long spans with seamless gutters only at one end. mine will only have one seam. im using those attachments that you hook on and screw in .they seem to hold them pretty straight and tight.then straps on top. any comments will be appreciatted. thanks

28' is just a little run. One drain should be ok. Most slopes are 1/4" per 10'.
That is the ideal. However, if you only have a 4" fascia board, you might have to flatten out the slope a little. Those gutter hangers that hook into the gutter and screw into the house are the best ones. For a 28' run, the ideal situation would be to put all 28 feet together on the ground, and then put it up in one piece. You will need to get a couple of friends to to help you.
Good Luck
