|Gutter downspouts are a major component of every home’s design, providing proper rain water drainage and diversion. Downspouts are metal pipes that connect with a home’s gutter system and carry rain water from the roof to the ground. Downspouts can be fitted with elbow connections at the end, which funnel water away from the home’s foundation and border landscaping. Another option is for downspouts to connect to PVC pipes that convey water into an underground drainage system. Downspouts protect the home’s roof, siding and foundation from water damage and help prevent flooding of the home’s basement.|
