Your gutters and downspouts work together to prevent water damage in and around your property. Any problem with your gutters or downspouts increases the risk of a leak, so it needs to be addressed promptly. Today, Gutter Helmet® of Cookeville, a local contractor for quality gutter guard systems, discusses common downspout issues and how to resolve them: 

Your Downspouts Are Not Long Enough

If your downspouts aren’t long enough, water can pool around your home and seep into your basement. One solution is installing downspout extensions, which should be done by an experienced professional. You can also consider hinge kickers that can allow the downspouts to be folded up if you need to conduct maintenance around your property.

You Don’t Have Enough Downspouts Installed

If you don’t have enough downspouts, water will likely back up in your gutters and spill over the sides, drenching your siding and landscape and leading to water damage. A gutter professional can assess your system and let you know if more downspouts need to be installed.

Your Downspouts Aren’t Big Enough

If your downspouts aren’t large enough, they won’t be able to properly channel precipitation away from your home. The proper size for your downspouts depends on several factors, such as the type of gutters you have, the size of your property and the amount of rainfall your local area typically receives. A gutter professional can help you determine what size downspouts you need.
