Your gutters and downspouts are two of your home’s lines of defense against moisture damage. This is because they catch the rainwater that runs off your roof and diverts it away from your home, protecting the structure from moisture damage. With that in mind, it’s vital that your downspouts remain in top form. Unfortunately, not a lot of homeowners are adept in determining whether or not their downspouts are properly doing their job.

Have You Noticed Dampness on Your Home’s Siding?

Your siding is one of the components of your home that your gutters and downspouts protect. Therefore, when you’re checking to see if your downspouts are still in good condition, look at your siding. If you notice that it’s damp, especially near your home’s foundations, it means that your downspouts aren’t working as well as they should be.

Is There Any Mold on Your Front Entrance Walkways?

On the other hand, if you notice any mold growth around your home, especially on the front entrance walkways or near the downspout itself, contact a professional to repair your downspouts immediately. This is because mold growth is a clear sign that your gutters and downspouts aren’t working as well as they should be.

Is There Stagnant Water Near Your Garden’s Downspouts?

Alternatively, you can also check for stagnant water near your garden’s downspouts. If there aren’t any, then your downspouts are working properly and delivering the water to the right place. On the other hand, if you noticed that there is some stagnant water, then it’s possible that your downspouts are damaged and will need to be repaired.
