The More You Know About Downspouts

Downspouts are very important to a gutter system to keep the water that comes off your roof.

Downspout leads water away from your home’s foundation. Attached to the bottom of your gutters with screws or glue (depending on who installs the gutters).  It leads it out of the gutters and lands sometimes on a concrete spot depending on the layout of your yard sometimes you have to install a pipe to lead the water away from your home.


Gutter backup can cause overflow.

Think your downspout has the clog you can take a garden hose to clean out the clog.  Perhaps relocate the downspout to an area where the ground slopes at a steeper angle away from your home.

A popular fix is to add a downspout extension. Bury the extension tubing. You can take the water as far away from your home as you like without having a big metal tube in your yard.
