Gutter extensions help prevent erosion during heavy rainfall by diverting water away from the soil directly underneath the downspout. This prevents water from pooling by your home, which might seep through cracks in your crawl space or basement.

The 3 Different Types of Gutter Extensions

Gutter Helmet® of Cookeville has the best gutter guard system, along with accessories like these gutter extensions, giving you maximum protection against water damage. If you experience frequent rain storms, improper soil grading and damp basement floors, you may need to take a look into purchasing a gutter extension to keep your house dry.  Here are the three different types of gutter extensions.

Flexible Gutter Extension

This gutter extension is made out of malleable corrugated plastic pipes for easy water direction. You can connect adapters to the system them in case you find erosion in the draining area. This drainage pipe is the best way to evenly distribute rainwater for less chance of water build-up.

Roll-Out Gutter Extension

The roll out gutter extension is so named because it automatically rolls out when it rains and coils back up when water stops flowing from the gutters. A great advantage of roll-out gutter extensions is how effectively they stop critters from getting into the downspout.

Flip-Up Gutter Extension

This is the most convenient type of gutter extension because of its retractable hinge that can easily be flipped out when needed and then flipped back up when not in use. It makes lawn mowing easier since you won’t have to worry about damaging the gutter extension.
