Downspouts – A Community Service Post

If you have downspouts on your house, office, or apartment, check from time to time that they are connected properly and that they direct water away from your foundation. Especially if you anticipate an extended period of heavy rain. Or you may find yourself moving furnishings and books, and pulling up carpet, because the water has eased into the building.

  1. Ah, the voice of experience. 🙂 And if you don’t have gutters, because the snow would rip them off sliding off the metal roof; put rock covered drain tiles in where the runoff hits, otherwise not only do you have mud splattered three feet up the side of your house, but come spring snowmelt you have an amazingly similar experience to the one you described above.
