Gutter hangers ??

I was at Home Depot looking for gutters for my detached garage and found a mfr. installation sheet. They list no less than seven different hanging methods (screw & ferrule, fascia bracket, hidden hanger w/ screw, hidden hanger, spike & ferrule, roof hanger w/ strap, and snap lock fascia bracket)!

My question is, I want the strongest/best (I'm in south Florida) - which one? The rafters are square-cut, so the fascia leans in toward the building at angle. The house (same construction) has spike & ferrule and it's holding, altho I've had to replace some of the spikes with screws. However the ferrules on the house are metal and all the stores have is plastic.

With the angle of the fascia, do I have a choice in hangers, and if so, which should I get?

Assuming you have 5"K style, hidden screw hangers and aluminum 'wdges' behind the gutters to keep them level.

Thanks for your reply, but what is 5"K style? They're the standard cheap alum. gutters from Home Depot or Lowe's.

Also, is there an aluminum wedge available commercially? If not, how to make?

What do you think about bending the hidden hangers to make them level? Won't work without the wedges?

5" is the gutter size,"k"is the gutter style
use inside brackets that screw through the back of the gutter through the fascia
yes use the gutter wedges,purchase them at a bradco,or professional supply house near you
only go to lowes or home depot if you want cheap stuff
some items obviously are good at those stores,but it is necessary to be able to pick and choose between them

Thanks O god of roofing!

I'm guessing K is your basic gutter. You provide won't have an answer for this one - wouldn't you think the manufacturer would provide that info somewhere?
