Gutter and Downspout Water


Gutter full of debris over time things will begin to grow if not cleaned

Do You Know How Gutters & Downspout Water Effects Your Basement?

Roof drainage is a common cause of wet basements. Also, downspouts that discharge water directly at foundation walls. A typical 2000 square foot roof can produce almost 1200 gallons of water during just 1 inch of rainfall. Fall season brings rain and leaves falling. Keeping your gutters clean and free of debris is one of the first line of defense to help keep your basement dry. Gutters and downspouts need to be free of debris, flow freely, and the downspout; need to empty away from basement foundation. Because leaves don't fall all at once it may be necessary to clean your gutters and downspouts more than once a season. Waters Basement Services recommends you have your gutters inspected at least four times a year.
