Water is an enemy of your home’s foundation—when rainwater pools around your foundation, the whole structural integrity can change. That’s why you need a functional home gutter system in Houston, TX to remove the water that lands on your roof, so your foundation stays safe. Watch this video and learn how to direct water from your downspout away from your home.
A rain gutter that just lets the water drop right onto your property rather than displacing it to a safe location will do more harm than good. To get the water far away from the shrubbery that surrounds your house, you need to understand gutters and gradings. An elbow piece changes the direction of water flow, so it can follow the grading away from your house. Otherwise, the water may simply follow the gutter system straight downward and pool in the exact areas you don’t want it to.
