Did you know, that...

Hydrostatic pressure problems.

Many homeowners prefer their downspouts extending a minimum of 8 feet in order for the discharging water coming off of your roof far enough away from the house and its surroundings.

It is a common instinct to drain downspouts into the footing tile system around the house. Having the water from the roof drain down next to the footings can add to hydrostatic pressure problems, especially if the footing tile is leaking or blocked.

This can occur over time due to soil movement or damage from tree roots.
