Downspout Discharge Line Burial in Hoffman Estates & Chicagoland area

Downspout Discharge Burial Line System For Homes In Chicago, Hoffman Estates Il

While gutter maintenance is necessary in order to keep your home's foundation healthy, there are other precautions to help keep your home structural sound in Hoffman Estates and Chicagoland area and Suburbs. Clogged gutter systems cause water to flow over the sides of the gutter which leads to soil erosion around and under the foundation. As a result, cracks form in the foundation which may eventually causes mold growth in basements.

The downspout is a section of the gutter that runs along the side of your home. It is where water exits from the gutter system. Downspouts are designed to lead water away from the foundation, but there is no guarantee that water will not run towards the foundation. That's why United Structural has offered one simple solution to make sure water will not back into your home's foundation – downspout discharge line burial.

Water that is discharged from downspouts should flow away from the foundation in order to avoid basement seepage and water damage. Homeowners that have above-ground downspout extensions eventually found out that underground downspout extensions do a better job draining water from the yard. They help direct the flow of water from the downspouts away from the foundation to prevent flooded basements and other water–related issues. Downspout discharge line burial systems are undetected so you don't see a pipe on your lawn and it won't be a tripping hazard.
