A downspout is a attached to your home’s gutter and designed to carry the rainwater, hail, etc. that collects on the roof of your house and directs it down to the ground. Most downspouts also have a bent section at the end that serves to direct the water or debris away from the house to prevent the moisture from collecting near the base of the house and causing possible damage.
An integral part of a gutter system is the downspout through which water travels from the gutter to the ground. In some installations Sunshine Contracting performs, the downspouts are connected to the storm water system while in others the downspouts end at ground level where the water is diverted away from the building. Some homeowners, especially in a country setting, will collect the water and use it for outdoor watering, saving it for dry periods. Our installers will properly install your downspouts to eliminate at potential water damage to your home.
Just like your gutters, downspouts come in two sizes: 2″x3″ or 3″x4″. They are made of the same material that your gutters are made of and provide a smooth transition for the water from the gutters to be drained away from the home.
Standard sized downspouts are the most common in residential settings and work well for homes with lower sloped roofs without a lot of tree cover.
Oversized downspouts can handle a larger amount of rainfall drainage from the gutter system and may clog less often as detritus makes its way to the downspout. Oversized downspouts allow the gutter system to do its job and reduce the strain on your gutters and extend your gutter system’s life.
Environmentally conscious homeowners have even managed to make downspouts part of their “green” lifestyle. The spouts can be used to direct water into a barrel, cistern or other container (including simple jugs, bottles and buckets). The collected water can be reused in a number of ways, including watering a garden and (when properly treated) doing laundry and providing water for a toilet system.
