Downspouts, Charlotte, NC
A drainage system on a home or business includes several key components. The first is the gutters, which are channels that run parallel to the eaves. The second is the downspouts, which are vertical pipe-like items that run down the side of the structure. When water accumulates on the roof, the gutters allow for proper movement of the water, preventing it from pooling and soaking through your roofing materials. Those gutters then connect to downspouts, which are placed in strategic locations on the property.
We can work on all aspects of a drainage system, including the rain gutters and downspouts.
Without functional downspouts, water could drain in places where it shouldn’t be, such as on walkways or above the foundation. Excess moisture on walking paths can create a slipping hazard and cause erosion of the concrete, while water draining above your foundation can lead to erosion and moisture damage within your living space. It’s important to keep an eye on all aspects of your drainage system and have any issues addressed and resolved as soon as possible. Ignoring a problem with rain gutters or downspouts could cause serious property damage, especially if your home is hit by a major rainstorm.
