Painted Aluminum Downspouts carry rain water from the roof or gutter system to the ground, and usually to a drain. They are also referred to as leader pipes, down pipes and drain spouts. Aluminum downspouts are best paired with aluminum gutters for uniformity. Aluminum gutter systems are the most popular option for most homeowners or contractors because they are low-cost, low-maintenance and easy to install.
