Downspout Extensions: What Are They & How Are They Important
With many homeowners throughout Horry County in flood zones due to the close proximity of the ocean, a proper drainage system is a MUST! Keeping water off your roof and away from your home’s foundation should be the top priority when it comes to your home’s drainage system. Having regular or custom rain gutters is important but depending on the foundation around your home, another drainage system accessory could be needed. That’s where a downspout or downspout extension comes in.
Downspouts and downspout extensions are attached to gutters and help redirect rainwater from your roof away from your home. These drainage system attachments help protect your home from potential water damage that could happen if the water isn’t redirected far enough away from the foundation. There are many different types of downspout extensions that can help redirect water and debris away depending on the landscaping around your home and the amount of leaf and debris buildup. It’s best to let a professional install or repair downspouts because many times damage, like overflowing gutters and a flooded basement, can happen due to poor installation. It’s not worth the risk!
