Can you install 3x4 downspouts in 4 inch seamless gutters?

I have one long run of 60 Ft, that is probably 1200 sq ft of roof going to one 2x3 downspout.

i would like to replace the 2x3 with a 3x4, just wondering if that will work in a 4 inch gutter/

thanks!

John

I've never heard of 4" gutter. The most common sizes of k-style are 5" gutter and 6" gutter. That's the distance across the top of the gutter.

3x4 will work on pretty much any size of k-style gutter. If you use drops, you sometimes may need to trim the sides of the drop flange to fit inside the bottom of the gutter.

I'll check when I get home from work.

I thought they told me either 4 or 5 and I chose the smaller of the two sizes
