Identifying eavestrough brand

I had eavestrough installed a few years ago and I need to get 1 or 2 pieces of downspout piping to extend a couple of my downspouts. Does anyone know how to identify the brand of eavestrough so I can figure out where I can buy it? The guy who installed it is no longer contactable (I think he passed away).

Nope...almost impossible unless there is some sort of stamped in ID, which I've never heard of.

Almost all brands are interchangeable if you match sizes. And who really cares if they don't pass close inspection for matching looks.

There is a profile difference in the seamless gutters and the sections sold at the big box, least ways locally.

I care if they match. They're in the front of my house, facing the road directly.

You may not be able to get a perfect color match both age and manufacturing processes can affect the color. Worst case scenario would be to paint them.

Take one from the back, put it on the front, and put the new one on the back. Call any company that installs gutters.
