When there is a heavy rain, are you experiencing water pooling up near your downspouts? Chances are, that’s because the majority of the rain water is being channeled & concentrated towards one centralized point, and it has nowhere to go. Sometimes the cheapest & most effective solution is to simply re-locate your home’s downspouts. Some people have roofs the size of a basketball court. Just imagine a basketball court mounted on the top of your house… slightly tilted so that one corner was the lowest point. Now imagine water running down the entirety of this basketball court, and funneling down to that one corner. It’s alot of water for one area to undertake. Now that the water is being channeled down through a singular downspout, it’s flooding out the exit area by default. When the grading is bad, that water naturally pools up against the house. When large amounts of water sit stagnant in one area, it takes much longer for it to evaporate. As a result, the water sits & corrodes, searching for it’s lowest point. If it happens to be sitting up against your home’s foundation, this can oftentimes result it water finding it’s way into your home. Again, the simplest – and most cost effective – way to help alleviate this water drainage issue… simply re-locate the downspouts.
