Downspouts play an indispensable role in protecting your Sacramento home or commercial building from water damage. The downspout is the vertical portion of your gutter system that carries water from the roof level to the ground level.

What Can Go Wrong with Downspouts?
Just like any other part of your Sacramento home's exterior, your downspouts need maintenance, repair, and the occasional downspout replacement. This ensures your gutters stay effective and that your property remains protected from water damage. Over time, there are many common issues that can go wrong with your downspout that require a replacement. Putting off replacement only risks more serious issues occurring, which can lead to significant property damage.
Here are a few of the most common reasons for Sacramento downspout replacement:
Sacramento downspout repairs are possible in some situations, but there are certain cases when repairs cannot be done or are not worth it. The first case is you’re your downspout begins to rust. Once rust sets in, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to repair. Many repairs are not possible because the rust prevents caulks and sealants from adhering to the downspout. When it comes to rust, Monsters Gutter recommends skipping repairs and scheduling an affordable downspout replacement in Sacramento instead.
Downspouts made of vinyl or plastic can also succumb to issues that cannot be repaired. Over time, especially in the Sacramento heat, vinyl and plastic downspouts warp, making repairs challenging and usually unsuccessful. Instead, we recommend a downspout replacement to upgrade the damaged downspout with a brand new metal one, suitable for Sacramento summers.
Whatever problem your gutter or downspout system is experiencing, the Sacramento team of gutter experts at Monsters Gutter will help you find a fast, effective solution. Our downspout replacement service will protect your home or business from water damage and flooding for years to come.

Our Process for Sacramento Downspout Replacement
At Monsters Gutter, we use a tried and true installation process that we've perfected during our many years of successful Sacramento downspout replacement. By relying on the best techniques and equipment, we can ensure your new downspout will protect your property for years to come. A properly installed downspout can weather heavy rains, extreme temperature changes, and light impacts without cracking or separating from the building. This means your downspout can effectively redirect water away from your foundation and landscape, as it was meant to, with minimal maintenance and repair.
So how do we go about replacing your old downspout? When our Sacramento gutter experts arrive at your home or business, here's what you can expect:
Step 1 - We Remove the Old Downspout
We carefully remove your old downspout to avoid damaging your building and existing gutter system. This involves unscrewing the gutter screws holding the outlet and downspout brackets to the side of the building. We will then loosen the downspout elbow and remove the straight section of the old downspout. We dispose of the old downspout for you when we're done.
Step 2 - Attach New Elbows
The elbow is the portion of the downspout that connects the downspout on the wall to your gutter system at the outer edge of your roof. Most gutter systems have several elbows, especially if you have brick, stone or other decoration on the face of your property. One elbow sits just above ground level to connect the vertical portion of the downspout with the section that lies against or just above the ground. This is also called a kick. Since the elbow has seams, we take extra care to seal it in a way that's leak-proof. We don't want water leaking out from the seams and gushing down the sides of your home or business. With rectangular downspouts, we’re able to fashion the elbow from the length of stick material and customize it to your property height and depth.
Step 3 - Attaching New Downspout Straight Sections
The straight sections of the downspout are located between the elbows. As the name implies, these are straight, rigid pieces that sit flush against your building's exterior walls. Straight pieces need to be measured and cut with precision, so they form a perfect seal with the elbows. If this step isn't done properly, your downspout's ability to move water away from your home or office will be reduced significantly. Some clients opt to have an additional firm or flexible tube section installed at the very bottom of the downspout. This piece lays against the ground and carries water further away from the building, offering additional protection to the foundation and nearby landscaping.
Step 4- Affix Brackets
The final step of downspout replacement is to affix brackets or straps to the side of the house. Using self-drilling concrete screws, we attach the downspout straps to hold it flush to your building. This ensures the downspout has a firm, long-lasting grip that won't be shaken loose by heavy rains or wind.
