Matching color gutter straps are also available. Downspouts must be secured firmly to the house as falling water places a heavy load on the pipe and fittings and can actually pull a downspout loose from the gutter or house. Once I have the downspouts in a finished configuration that I like I rivet each pipe and fitting together with two matching color rivets. Additional rivets used to secure the straps to the leader pipe leaves a nice looking end product that will not pull apart. Also important to a good gutter system is to provide a way for the water to get from the end of the downspout away from the house foundation.
A newer mount fits inside the gutter locks into the gutters lips and is screwed into the fascia with a power drill. This type leaves no exterior evidence of mounting. If you are using spikes and ferrules placing a ferrules inside the gutter lips Place a spike on the outside face of the gutter directly over the opening in the ferrule. Striking the spike with sufficient force it will pierce the gutter and enter into the ferrule. Line up the gutter exactly where you want the finished elevation to be and drive the spike through the back of the gutter and into the fascia board.

Often used in the New England area it is rumored to help prevent damage from sliding snow they became Yankee Gutters. These work extremely well and may be as much as twelve inches wide to catch all the water from the roof. They must be maintained however to prevent any leaks. Leaks will penetrate directly into the house itself since the gutter sits inside the exterior wall line. Properly installed and maintained by proper cleaning these gutters have lasted over a hundred years. All gutters have downspouts of some kind. These come in ten foot straight lengths as well as elbows type A and Type B.
