Home Hints: Add a 6 foot long downspout extensions to your downspouts.
A 1 inch rainfall drops about 650 gallons of water on an average roof and your downspouts concentrate all that water in only a few spots. If dumped too close to the house the water will undermine your foundation causing it to leak, shift or crack-very expensive fix. Downspout extensions will prevent most major problems including wet basements, cracked foundation walls, and termites and carpenter ant infestations.
