Downspouts are used to carry water from the gutter to the ground. They must be installed in such a way that water flows away from the house foundation so that there are no damages to the foundation or water leaks into the basement.
It is a very common issue with the downspouts that they become loose over time or fall down with the wind. They could also get blocked with ice during the winter season. We fix many such issues related to the downspouts as well as eavestroughs.
Is it possible to fix a loose downspout?
Downspouts may become loose with the wind or for any other reason. It can be fixed very easily in most cases by just screwing it back into the gutter.
It may be required to replace the loose downspout if it’s broken and not usable.
Is it possible to replace one section without replacing the entire length?
Downspouts are installed in 10-foot sections and each individual section can be removed and replaced if needed.
The only caveat is that the color may not match exactly with the existing downspout.
Can you extend downspouts at the bottom for better water flow?
