Downpipe Installation & Repair
A damaged or incorrectly positioned downspout can leave you at risk of water damage to your home or business.
What is a downspout, and what does it do?
Downspouts are the vertical pipes that connect to your home’s gutter or eavestrough so that water can be diverted away from your home. They help to protect you against getting water in your basement or water damage to your home’s foundation.
If your downspouts are releasing water that is flowing towards the foundation of your home or business, the following problems may occur:
- Flooding and water damage
- Moisture build-up
- Mould and breathing issues
Combined with your gutter system, a properly installed downspout will also help protect your roof from water damage.
What type of downspout should I have?
While the industry standard for a downpipe is 2×3″, we often recommend a 3×3″ downpipe to allow for extra water flow. When we come out to inspect your property, our experts will evaluate and recommend what would be best suited for your home.
Maintaining your downspouts
While it is fairly easy to tell whether you have debris in your eavestrough, detecting a clog in a downspout is not as simple since it is completely enclosed. A clogged downspout, however, can cause water to collect within the gutter and prevent it from getting drained away from your home.
For this reason, it is important to inspect for and remove any clogs in the downspout every time you have your gutters cleaned.
Do I need new downspouts?
Over time, the condition of your downspouts may degrade, which means that you will need to replace them. If your current downspouts are damaged, leaking, or falling off, we strongly recommend that you contact us and arrange for one of our technicians to replace them.
