What exactly is a downspout? A gutter downspout is the tube of the gutter system that runs vertically down the corners of a home or business allowing rainwater to be relieved from the gutters on your roof. The end of down spouts are always pointed away from the home or business forcing rainwater to flow away from the structure. Downspouts are typically aimed towards driveways allowing water to flow on concrete as opposed to your lawn.
Downspout installation -
Gutter downspouts are installed along with any new gutter system. But sometimes these downspouts can become damaged and need replacing before the rest of your gutter system. Choice Roofing Group offers both new downspout installation as well as downspout repair.
For some homes the idea of allowing gutter downspout drainage to flow into a driveway is just not feasible. For these homes we recommend installing downspout extensions to lead the drainage wherever you desire; the woods, driveway, street. We also carry downspout filters to combat pesky leaves in the Fall by preventing them from crawling their way into your new downspouts and clogging up your system. Choice Roofing Group recommends inspecting your gutter downspouts at least twice a year; once in the spring before the heavy rain, and once in the fall after the leaves have fallen. Properly inspecting your gutter system grantees you will get the most life out of your investment.
