Gutter & Downspout Accessories

As an enhancement to modern, traditional, and historic gutters, rain collectors can play an important role in your system.

Where are collector boxes installed? Typically, we install them on the front of the home for aesthetic reasons, but can also choose the backside or patio depending on your roof’s architecture and the expectations on the watershed. They’re equally applicable on commercial structures.

We install them just below the gutter, at the very top of a downspout. We’ll use collector boxes to help add air into the gutter line to prevent excess noise and avoid vacuum lock. They also hold excess water from the gutters, valleys of your roof, and roof scuppers during periods of higher rain. For these reasons, you may know collector boxes by a few common names:

Conductor Heads

Conductor Boxes

Collector Heads

Gutter Heads

Leader Heads
