Downspouts are vertical pipes connected to the gutters, that carry the water away from the home, and the gutters, to the ground.
These have a crucial function in the gutter system, they connect straight gutters when there are angles, such as at the corners.
Gutter guards sit like covers or lids over the gutter; they act to prevent anything over water from entering the gutters.
End caps are found at the end of gutters, they force the water to take the path down the downspouts to the ground.
