Most homeowners don’t really spend their time thinking about how their gutters are doing. In fact, you might not have thought about them at all since the day they were first installed. But they will be your top priority when something goes wrong!
Gutters, like everything else in our home, are subject to the wear and tear that comes with the passage of time. You’ll end up having to deal with problems such as back flows, clogged gutters, leaks, holes, and other types of damage. Sometimes, the problem is there from the start when gutter slopes are incorrect or downspouts are built improperly.
One common problem homeowners need to deal with are overflowing gutters, which was the issue our Nashville client had. Let’s see how we handled it.
Downspout Installation in Nashville TN
The gutter in this section of our Nashville client’s home would often overflow during rainy days. Because of how the gutter was positioned resulting in lack of pitch, water would gather in that spot instead of flowing towards the exit. Thus, water would overflow!
If left unaddressed, the overflowing gutter could result in too much water pooling too close to their home, which could cause damage to their siding, landscape, and foundation. It even put them at risk of dreaded mold growth and flooding! All of these are definitely extra motivation to resolve the issue right away.
To fix their problem, our team needed to install a new downspout so the water would flow better. A downspout is a tube that extends from the gutter to the ground. Its purpose is to control the flow of the water vertically away from the home in order to prevent any foundation damage and soil erosion.
Our team installed a 3×4″ white downspout with elbows. It took our team only 30 minutes. Now, the homeowner’s gutters and their new downspout will work together to efficiently channel water away from his home and keep it in good shape.
