Downspout Causing Water Intrusion in Barnesville?

A rain gutter and downspout is shown. We restore water damage 24-hours a day in Clay County.

SERVPRO® of Moorhead responds to water damage emergencies in Barnesville every year. Although downspouts and rain gutters can divert rain away from a structure when installed correctly, they can do serious damage to a home when they are damaged or misaligned. Yikes! Here are some tips from home expert Bob Vila:

Inspect your rain gutters for visible signs of cracking. Use binoculars to inspect for smaller cracks. If you see extensive cracking, replacement is required.

Inspect gutter seams for damage where two horizontal sections meet.

Inspect your home’s paint job. If there is evidence of paint peeling, it may point to rain gutter failure. Check the section of the rain gutter closest to the paint damage for leaks. If there are more than a couple of leaks, you may want to replace the rain gutters.

Inspect your home’s exterior wood elements for rotting windowsills or door jambs. You may have clogged rain gutters or inadequate storm drainage.

Inspect the exterior of the home for mildew damage. If there is moisture accumulating around or near the foundation, mildew can grow. This is a sign your rain gutters are not working properly.
