Like gutters, downspouts come in different shapes and styles and cost between €10 and €200. The type or style of your downspout should match the gutters, but you can also mix and match some styles. The cost fluctuates depending on the style and material.
Rectangular downspouts are the most common. They cost an average of €10 to €30 each. These are one of the popular and most common types. They come in any material and in a full range of colours. Most rectangular downspouts have a slightly crimped exterior, but a few have a smooth finish. They can be ready-made and sold in 10-foot lengths or can be made seamless on site.
€10 to €30 each. This downspout works with k-style gutters, some of the most popular and common types. They come in any material and in a full range of colours. Most rectangular downspouts have a slightly crimped exterior, but a few have a smooth finish. They can be ready-made and sold in 10-foot lengths or can be made seamless on site.
Most downspouts are rigid and fixed. They run vertically, from the gutter to the ground and extend, offering more versatility in directing water. You can move it further up, so the water runs both ways instead of straight down. Its flexibility allows you to position it differently to extend it further. Sometimes these downspouts are added to existing downspouts for extra reach. They cost on average between €20 and €30.
You should combine a round or semi-circular gutter with a round downspout if you have one. Round downspouts are smooth, crimped or corrugated. They cost on average between €65 and €200. Usually the smooth versions are more expensive than the types, even in the same material. Round styles are more likely to be found in more expensive materials such as copper than rectangular downspouts.
