How Many Downspouts Should I Have on My House?
It’s always better to have more downspouts than less. If more downspouts are being installed, it’s easier for contractors to configure a proper eavestrough slope. Good slope ensures water will not be sitting in your eavestrough (leading to ice in the winter, as mentioned above).
Unfortunately, some home owners are limited with the amount of places where downspouts can be installed. In these cases, we try our best to find available spots in order to install a sufficient amount of downspouts and get water away from the house.
