Houston Averages of rain is 49+ inches of rain per year, so we recommend 3x4 downspouts to increase water flow, higher chance of clearing debris in the gutter and will take more square feet per liner foot.
You may not need gutter covers on every home or around the entire home if there are no trees or trees close by.
