Water is NOT your friend!
Did you you know that water is
the number one culprit of damage to homes?
Water weakens foundations and causes mold and mildew.
Damp wood invites termites and carpenter ants.

However, the majority of drainage problems can be
eliminated or reduce with improvements to exterior grading
and proper performance of gutters and downspouts.
Here's what you can do!
  • Make sure that you have gutters in the right places and that they are properly installed. Gutters are recommended at all appropriate roof slopes around the entire perimeter of the home.
  • Downspouts should have splash blocks and preferably flexible downspout extensions to prevent ponding, puddling and splash-back near the foundation.
  • Extend downspouts a minimum of 6 to 10 feet away from the base of the home where appropriate.
  • Clean your gutters in spring and again in fall.
