Ask John #15: Hangers vs Spikes and Ferrules

What is the advantage of using hangers over spikes and ferrules in my eavestrough?
Hangers use screws which hold the trough tighter to the fascia board and make it more secure than spikes. Spikes can become loose over time and cause your gutter to sag and leak. Hangers are also hidden inside the tough while spikes are nailed through the front of it making it visible from the ground.
