Downspout Repair & Installation in Akron, Ohio
Why Are Downspouts Important?
Downspout lines are an important part of a home’s water drainage system. Roof water is carried from your gutters into a downspout line and carried away from your home.
When downspout lines are clogged, your gutters will begin to overflow and water will accumulate at the base of your home’s foundation. This leads to water build up around your home’s foundation and water eventually seeps into your basement and walls.
