Downspout Placement Options
Downspout is a necessary part of your gutter system since it eliminates erosion. It is an economical upfront investment. When installing your downspout, our team takes several things into consideration:
- If you have a flower garden we make sure that downspout water disposition doesn’t flow directly into it.
- It will depend on whether your yard is flat or sloped. If you have a flat yard, we will install downspout extending further from the house.
- Customers appreciate the visual when choosing the place and look of the downspout. We are here to offer your variety of colors and find the best one according to your siding.
- When looking for a best place to install the downspout, foundation is our biggest concern. The downspout should be placed as away from the foundation as possible.
Available Downspout Types and Their Advantages
There are two main types of downspouts and you can choose one depending on the current gutter style.
If you have half-round gutter installed usually round downspouts will be the first choice. They are available in both corrugated and smooth styles and both can be made of steel or copper. Round downspout is very efficient in the sense of water drainage and is large in diameter. However, there are some downsides such as the installation can take longer and they can be expensive.
Another name for rectangular downspout is “box gutter” since it has rectangular box shape. This downspout type has three main advantages:
- They are time-consuming and affordable choice for your gutter system.
- We will attach it to the fascia board which makes it functional and performs efficiently.
- They come in all sizes.
On the other hand, rectangular downspouts have very sharp edges, and it can be tricky to clean them. Also, they are known for retaining water thus making it inefficient solution for water drainage.
Signals of Downspout Drain Cloggage
Clogged drains may cause serious problems to your home. Downspout drains are usually placed underground and keep the water away from your house. If you don’t take proper care of it and they become clogged, it’ll lead to water overflowing. We will list some signs which can help you detect the issue before it escalates.
Downspouts usually drain into the street or driveway. When it’s raining you should check the system to see if there is any water. In case there is no water, it means your system is probably clogged.
Gutter System Overflowing
The first thing you will notice is that the gutters begin to fill with water. It is the first sign of clogged downspouts and when filled with water, it will start leaking everywhere.
In case your downspout is improperly installed or clogged, it can cause serious water damage to your basement. If you notice water draining too close to your foundation, it may be possible that the downspout is clogged, or it just disposes in faulty location.
This can happen with traditional gutter system since it is made from many sectional pieces. The downspout installed would need to fit in with gutter system choice. The spewing from the seams or joints may be noticed in case of heavy rains which further indicates some kind of blockage.
Don’t hesitate to contact us before clogged and improperly installed downspout cause major problems. Call All West Rain Gutters today and we will inspect the system and detect any possible issues.
Downspouts Materials You Can Choose
Materials used to make downspouts are the same as those used to make gutter systems. Our customers usually choose the one to fit in with the current system installed. As with gutters, the choice for materials will depend on various factors such as durability, strength, appearance, and cost.
- Aluminum is the most common choice because it is lightweight, affordable, and long-lasting.
- Vinyl is made from PVC and probably the easiest one to install. It doesn’t rust, but its lifespan is limited.
- Steel is very strong and durable but rusts over time.
- The best and most expensive choice is copper. Copper is the strongest material for your system, and it can give your exterior a very rustic look.

Usually, when you replace or purchase gutter you’ll probably need to get downspouts. An estimate for vinyl and aluminum downspout is $5 to $8. A bit more expensive kinds are steel and copper which cost between $10 and $20. Drains, blocks, hangers, elbow and flushing also make part of the installation and are paid separately.
A downspout is a pipe attached to the side of a building, through which rainwater flows from the roof into the drain. So, we can say that it plays a very important role against water damage to foundation, siding, and fascia board. Unproper downspout installation makes your house exposed to moisture and corrosion which further causes the growth of mold and mildew. Downspouts also protect your home against basement flood and water accumulation on the rooftop.
If you live in an area with heavy rains, larger downspout will be perfect choice for you because they are designed to handle more water. Larger downspouts are also better if you have long gutter runs or complicated design.
We will advise you on putting aluminum extension or blocks. This can help direct the water minimum 4 ft from the house. Other options include rain barrels, underground drainpipe, and drain sleeve.
The downspout diameter is calculated by the roof area they drain. The common downspout size for a K-style gutter system is 2*3 inches. We would recommend 3*4 inches because it will be easier for you to clean it and it is less likely to form blockage.
