Hopefully the photo will illustrate the problem. I have a roof that only has a sort of moulding that transitions from roofing to the walls. Since there is only about 3/4" of vertical material to anchor gutters clips, are there any specialty hardware or other techniques to hang gutters along this facia.

    Are you certain you want/need gutters? Aside from fixing possible foundation drainage issues, they're usually more trouble than worth. Oct 29 '15 at 15:31
  • @CarlWitthoft Good point. There are a few spots that I'm pretty sure gutters are the only way to fix the issue (like over a garage door) but I'll keep that in mind for some other places that may not be totally necessary

This would be a situation where you'll have to use gutter straps (usually in T or K style): enter image description here

They install on the roof decking - make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions, as you'll be penetrating the singles.

Usually this is prepared at the time of roof install, but with care, may be retrofitted, using these brackets.roof bracket
