How Downspout Extension Corpus Christi Products WorkDownspout extensions are easy to install and they direct water from the roof away from the foundation of a building. Essentially, downspout extensions work with the gutters and downspouts to prevent rain water from landing at the point where the ground and the building meet. This is very important because it prevents flooding that can cause foundation or structural damage to the property. It also protects the landscaping or lawns from water damage. It’s important to note that even if you have a great gutter system it will not serve its purpose effectively if the downspouts drain rainwater towards or near the foundation of your property. Downspout extensions ensure that your property has a sufficient drainage system. These fixtures extend a few feet into the yard. Basically, these extensions are attached to the end of the downspouts.
Why You Should Install Downspout ExtensionsIf rainwater is collecting close to the foundation of your property, don’t ignore this problem because doing so will only escalate it. That’s because water accumulation around your building’s foundation will:
- Weaken the building’s foundation
- Cause leaks and cracks on the walls
- Damage the soffit and fascia boards
- Cause landscape erosion
- Lead to basement flooding
- Cause structural damage
