gutter questions

I have a home that was built in 1916. I just had a roof put on and then new gutters. Why do they put the straps on top of the new shingles and not underneath? I have been asking the person that roofed my house, but not getting straight answers, cause all the neighbors have theirs under the shingles.

what straps? im not sure what your talking about. when i hung gutters we used what are called hidden hangers, they hook in and under the front and then slide and clip on the back and you screw it in place.

From what I know, and I've done a lot of reading up on gutters lately, is that straps are supposed to go UNDER the singles. It shouldn't make any difference in the function of your roof or gutters, just a little unsightly.

the straps should be secured with the ends(where the nails/screws are) under the shingles,otherwise you`re relying on caulk to keep the fastener holes from leaking through your roof-it`s ok for the straps to show though,as long as the ends and fasteners are under the shingles

Question 6 inch Gutter question

Sorry to post a question here, but DIY keeps changing their format & I cant figure out how to post a new question. I want to put up new 6 inch gutters after having a foot of water flood my basement. So far, 3 "gutter" guys have been reluctant to give me prices. I have a price from 1. The other 2 just would not call me back. I cannot understand this as I am willing to pay for this & being that my basement was already flooded & Im sure my Insurance will not pay if it floods again. Can anyone tell me why they are so reluctant to do this? Thanks/Jina
