Poorly installed or improperly designed gutter systems cause water to collect around your home — the opposite of what they’re supposed to do. This is called a downspout clog and can be exceedingly problematic for your home. Because of this issue, gutters and valleys overflow. And water can pool in or next to the structure. Though a bit of water won’t destroy the whole system, too much water collecting can be troublesome; especially if water and other debris are weighing down your gutters or creating dam-like structures around your home or building.
It might be apparent that there is a problem with the system, but that doesn’t mean that you know how to fix it or why it is broken in the first place. Poor installation, low-quality materials, and ineffective drain line design are all potential points of failure for this type of system. At McWane Drainage Solution Pros, we examine your gutter and downspout system to discover the source of your problem and give you an explanation about how we can find a resolution.
