A gutter is a part of the systems that carry water that runs off of your roof. It is installed just below the roofline around the edges of your home where the roof slopes downward. Gutters are usually made from a few different materials such as vinyl, aluminum, copper or even stainless steel. Gutter and downspouts systems will have a slight pitch that runs towards the corners of the roof so that water and other precipitation is encouraged to flow down and away from your home.
The downspout is the part of your gutter system that runs vertically down the edge of your home. It connects to a hole in the gutter channel to carry water away from the home. This also prevents without causing damage to your exterior or foundation. It will typically bend out and sit a little bit above the ground.
Number of Downspouts Needed
Depending on the amount of gutter and downspouts system, you may or may not need more or less downspouts. Typically, for every twenty feet of gutters, you will need a downspout. You may have the need for even more downspouts. It also depends on the amount of precipitation you have in your area. In addition, the drainage area that you have available also plays a role. Moreover, a poorly designed gutter system that does not include enough downspouts could lead to the accumulation of rainwater.
