Roof-mounted hangers are usually the only option when installing gutters on a house with angled fascia or crown-molding detail on the overhangs. But roof hangers have a couple of significant drawbacks. First, the brackets are right out there in the open where they detract from an otherwise uncluttered roof. Second, they're fastened through the shingles that handle the most water. Yost Manufacturing has come up with an alternative. The Mole Hidden Hanger Attachment works with the company's standard strap hanger for roof mounting. The self-flashing mole slips under the shingles and attaches with nails. The design makes the hanger less visible and reduces the possibility of leaks.
