The downspout drain is meant to remove water from your roof and whisk it away from your foundation and basement. Unfortunately, when a downspout drain is not working correctly, you may end up with water flowing off the roof and next to your home. This can result in water in basement rooms, seeping in from the outside through your foundation walls.
Many different problems can occur with a downspout drain. It may become clogged, unable to divert heavy rain water to a storm drain. There could be damage to the drain or tile, causing the runoff water to accumulate around the foundation and penetrate the basement. You may need a downspout drain cleaning or complete replacement. Either of which our leak repair experts and plumbers can provide if that is the cause of water in basement areas.
