By now, you have learned or know how gutters play an important role in keeping your home safe from flooding, corrosion, mold, and other expensive problems. You also know that there are many pieces and parts that make a gutter system successful.
Yet, no gutter system is complete without a downspout, which is a key component for carrying and directing rainwater away from the foundation of your home, barn or business. Typically, this is an additional channel of the system that will continue to carry and deposit water away from the house’s foundation, ranging anywhere from one to three feet away. With proper grading and good soil, this component can help protect your yard, garden and landscaping.
If you are not familiar with downspouts, you have probably seen them on homes at one point or another. These drainage pipes often run vertically on the sides of homes or buildings to continue the flow pathway from the roof down and away from the home. A downspout is placed about every 40-feet around a house to enable and ensure it can handle and properly direct any capacity of water.
