True North has developed is now manufacturing a new cast aluminum downspout bracket that not only looks great but is very strong. As you can see it has that old world look of cast iron, and looks great on the downspout attached to a wall. Our standard method of strapping downpipes to the wall is still great, as we double strap all our downpipes. By introducing this new cast aluminum bracket, we have taken one more step to improving your rainwater system. And given our customers another option with their eavestrough installation. At True North, we are always looking for quality solutions for our clients. Contact us today to see how these would look with your new eavestrough installation.
The photos below will show you how we install your downpipe, starting by removing the existing one that was attached with a roofing nail. Not the way to do it!
Below, you can see that they used roofing nails to go into the brick wall. It didn’t take much for this downpipe to come off. The home is only 5 years old, and I’m surprised it lasted this long.
In this photo, you can see that we use a full strap with a lead drive to fully secure it to the wall.
And once the downpipe is on, and the strap has been connected with a 5/8” screw,
we then proceed to attach the fancy strap that you see below.
This way, you do not see the fasteners on the strap. This is purely for decorative purposes, as the strength in the strap that is covered.
