The Role of Downspouts

Gutter systems rely mainly on gravity to remove rain, melting snow, and any other excess water from roofs. A downspout is a lightweight tube that runs down to the ground from the gutter. Its primary function is to direct that excess water away from your home. In doing so, a downspout prevents damage to your foundation, minimizes soil erosion, and reduces the risk of basement flooding.

Common Issues and Sources of Downspout Problems

Clogging is one of the most common issues to affect downspouts. Leaves, animal droppings, and loose roofing granules are among the many things that can get into downspouts and contribute to blockages and clogs. In addition, old or worn sealant can result in leaking seams. When your gutter system gets old or otherwise ready for an upgrade, consider making the switch to seamless downspouts in order to prevent this issue.

Overflowing rainwater when your gutters remain clean and clear can also be a sign of problems. Issues with your downspout could be the result of improper sizing as well. For instance, tubes that are too narrow tend to be more susceptible to clogging and require immediate downspout repair. Call your local plumber for assistance.

Why Repair Should Be Prompt and Professional

The one thing you don't want to do is ignore any issues with your downspout. A clogged or leaking downspout can result in a backup of water and potentially costly property and landscape-related damage. Downspout repairs should be handled professionally as a DIY approach to this type of repair work can be risky and result in unintended damage to your gutter system and roof.

What if my gutters don't drain properly?

Mud, leaves, and other sediment often contribute to clogging a downspout over time. When a gutter and downspout don’t drain properly, water may begin to back up near your home. This can cause damage to the structure in a variety of ways.
