How do you know if you have clogged downspouts?
You know you have a clogged gutter when you see water flowing out over the gutter edges,you see soil erosion at your foundation and there is peeling of paint, dirt and moisture on the house siding.
Homeowners often forget the downspouts which is part of the gutters. Cleaning the gutters makes the water flow down smoothly from the roof through the gutters but then gets stucked in a clogged downspout.
Clogs in downspouts cannot be easily seen. You will need to feel inside the downspout by tapping with a screwdriver, starting at the top and working your way down.
