Installing copper gutters and downspouts
1. Brackets. A technician screws gutter brackets to the fascia board, allowing for proper pitch.
2. End caps. After the gutter has been cut to length, end caps are soldered to create a watertight seal.
3. Seams. Long gutter runs are created by soldering separate sections at the seams.
4. Holes. Workers drill a hole in the gutter at each downspout location.
5. Downspouts. Wall brackets secure each downspout to the sidewall.
