Gutters on an angled fascia

Does anyone know if there is a bracket, strap or any product out there to accomodate the hanging of a gutter on a fascia that is not vertical. I never cut the rafter tails vertical when I built my shed, so the fascia is off 90 by the roof pitch. Appreciate any info.

Assuming you are hanging gutters, and not a rainhandler system, as is pictured above, you might need a gutter hanger w/roof strap, such as the ones below:





If nailing to the roof is not an option, I've seen guys custom make a U shaped shim out of light gauge steel/ heavy gauge aluminum, like the ones pictured below. They screw these to the fascia first, making a plumb surface for the gutter to lay against. It's very similar to the angled fascia adapter pictured in twelvepole's reply, but big enough for a 5" gutter to sit against.

If you wanted to buy them, they're often called gutter wedges.

The wedge/shim looks exactly like what I need. Thanks very much. One more question, guys, for a 22 foot gutter run for a small roof (8 x 22), can I attach on 32" centers? Thanks again for your help.

That would probably be okay for such a short roof. Aren't your rafters 24" OC, though?

Thanks, XSleeper

I did 16" OC because I have a storage system attached to the rafters.

Is the fascia 1x or 2x?

1x. Does it make a difference? I would drive fasteners into either rafters or joists.

I was just thinking that if you had 2x fascia, as is common on a lot of new construction nowadays (since it usually gets clad w/aluminum) that your gutter screws would have more meat to bite into, wherever they may be. Since the fascia is 1x, youre right- you'll want to be careful to place the fasteners through the fascia and directly into the rafter tails for better holding power. If you do, that should be fine.
