Expensive repairs have been made by foundation companies when a damaged downspout or missing downspout extensions have been the blame. Downspout elbows become seperated , downspout extensions get crushed by landscapers, or downspouts just completely blow off from high winds.
Gutters and downspouts are pretty important. Downspouts provide a drainage point for water. Your roof collects water from rainfall, ice or snow that water collects in the gutter and the gutter transports that water to the downspout to drain. The bigger the downspout the faster water drains. If your downspouts are damaged rainwater will fall from the gutters and collect around your foundation. When too much water collects around your foundation there is a potential for that water to seep into your foundation and leak into your basement.
Oversized downspouts are recommended on every residential home. A hole is made in every gutter where a downspout is to be installed. The bigger the downspout is installed the faster rain water will drain from your gutters.
