No roof or gutter system is complete without downpipes. Damaged or missing downpipes can create a range of potential problems including providing an opportunity for water to damage the foundations on which your home is built.
Downpipes allow the rain from your roof to get to the stormwater drain without damaging the foundation or land around your home.
If a downpipe is missing or not joined properly to the roof, rainwater can concentrate to a single point, where it is then dumped on the ground. This can cause extra noise that can be frustrating when trying to sleep and potentially cause the erosion of concrete, pathways or gardens around your home. If left too long, water can slowly cause the ground around where it falls to become destabilised and may leak under your house.
While we very rarely think about these issues, faulty downpipes should be replaced or reconnected. We are happy to take a look and provide a free quote.
