Are you ready for April's Showers?
A downspout is an essential part of your gutter system and many problems can occur if it's not functioning properly. Check for pooling water and drainage issues near downspouts and gutters which can cause flooding and foundation problems.Also high winds can loosen downspouts and even break them. A downspout that is not properly secured can cause damage to the gutters and roof, allowing water to discharge next to your building foundation.
Water that is allowed to run from your gutter and downspouts directly into the ground can cause a flooding that may end up in your crawlspace or basement and can wear away the soil alongside the house, causing settling of the structure.
If you find water in your basement or crawlspace don't hesitate to contact SERVPRO, we are here to help in any disastrous situations.
