If you notice damp stains on your siding near your house’s foundation, stagnant water in your garden near the downspouts, efflorescence and mold on your walkways, and overflowing gutters, you need to check your downspouts.

Here are some recommendations to help you determine if your downspouts are the issue.

  1. Overflowing gutters can sometimes be caused by clogged gutters and downspouts. This case is fairly easy to handle. Just clean your gutters and downspouts.

  2. When the downspouts are too short, rainwater will be directed near your foundation causing damage to the siding and the foundation. Call a professional to fix the issue.

  3. Overflowing rainwater can happen if there are not enough downspouts to handle the water runoff. This case also requires professional gutter installation services.

  4. The absence of accessories like splash blocks and downspout extensions can result in flooding and erosion in your garden. You can have them installed to keep the rainwater away from your property.
