Every time it rains in Owen Sound, a home without downspouts is at risk for major damage.
Every residential and commercial structure sits on top of a foundation, which connects the building to the ground and transfers the weight in a safe and efficient way. The foundation also protects the interior of the building from excess moisture that can seep through the ground and into the space. On the top of every structure, a roof protects the upper part of the structure from the elements, as well as any pests and wild animals that might be looking for a way in. Both of these elements of the building are crucial for protection, but they can become damaged over time.
One way to protect your roof and foundation is to make sure the drainage system is working properly. When it rains or snows, water can accumulate on the ground and on the roof. Excess moisture seeping through the roof materials can damage them prematurely, while too much water on the ground can slowly erode the concrete foundation. A building must have downspouts to carry water after a big storm and release the moisture away from the exterior. Every time it rains in Owen Sound, Ontario, a home without downspouts is at risk for major damage.

If your home doesn’t have these crucial components or your downspouts aren’t keeping up with the amount of moisture we receive, contact us.
