New Quality Downspouts
Downspouts are drainage pipes that direct rain water from the roof to the ground. This is where the rainwater is lead away from the buildings foundation so that no rainwater is able to pool around the building. Downspouts are most commonly seen attached to the corners of home or building. Without perfectly working downspouts, rainwater will fall off the roofs edge and may cause flooding and damage to the building or its foundation.
Clean Clogged Downspouts
The problem with downspouts is that they clog very easily when leaves, twigs, and other debris accumulate within the downspout itself. This makes it difficult for the rainwater to drain properly throughout the downspout.
Any debris that is found in the gutters should be removed. To reveal if there are any blockages in the downspouts, run a hose through the downspout. Attached by downspout brackets, downspouts can be removed quite easily for cleaning if it becomes clogged with debris.
