How not to do a downspout

How not to install downspouts Toronto This picture pretty much speaks for itself. You can not have proper functioning eavestroughs if there is a restriction with a downspout. In this case the company that did this handywork may not have realized how this entire system was basically shut down due to how the downspout was squeezed and jammed into the small galvanized downspout that goes through the roof. We had to redirect this downspout completely as the pipe through the roof was way too small.
Performance of an eavestroughing system can be jeopardized and prevented from flowing properly as a result from leaves caught in the downspout and also using downspouts that are too small for the square footage of the roof.
Downspouts of proper size and clear of debris are key to controlling water around your property.
