Water flows off the roof and into your gutters, which are pitched 1/2″ every 10′ toward a downspout. Water drains out the downspout and through an extender that channels the water several feet away from your home’s foundation. It sounds simple enough, but a lot of natural forces can impede this process.
Leaves from overhanging trees clog gutters, low quality gutters or downspouts don’t maintain their shape over time and leak or get blocked, and downspouts that drain right onto the base of the home are ineffective altogether. Your siding is also at risk should water ever be allowed to run down the side of your home.
You deserve peace of mind knowing your drainage system is effective, functional and requires no maintenance. Get yourself some leaf guard and never clean your gutters again!
