Most homes are outfitted with 5" gutters and for a lot of those homes, 5" of gutter just isn't enough.
Either there is too much volume of water coming off the roof, the pitch is steep and the water is coming too fast, or you have multiple pitches coming together at a corner and overwhelming the gutter!
Any time water gets to the base of the home in large quantities it's probably only a matter of time until that water finds its way into your basement. For most applications we recommend 6" gutters.
While more costly (not by a lot) in the short term, the long-term potential savings from not having a flooded basement makes 6" gutters a worthwhile investment to protect your home!
