Flood Prevention: Gutters and Downspouts

Is your gutter system working how it should? Watch for a few things you should check to avoid flooding and costly repairs.

Inspect all of the gutters around your house to make sure that they’re free of leaves or any other debris that may obstruct the flow of rainwater.

Check your downspouts to make sure they’re long enough to carry the water away from your house. If water is pooling around your foundation after a heavy rain, longer downspouts may be necessary.

If your gutters feed to underground drainage systems, check the drain grates to make sure they’re not clogged.

Check all connections between gutter sections and downspouts to make sure that nothing has become disconnected.
