Yard Drainage Components
Many home owners don't concern themselves with having proper yard drainage until it becomes a major issue. Not having suitable slopes and drainage systems on a property to direct or divert the flow of water runoff can create a variety of water damage problems. You may have a wet basement, a damp crawl space, or a damaged yard. You don't want a yard that is always filled with deep puddles of water run-off, or a home with a moisture-filled basement or crawl space area.
Splash Guards & Water Diverters
Splash Guards are installed to assist with directing water away from the area where two roofs meet and create a valley. The Splash Guards and water diverters allow the water to run off and travel into the gutter system without spilling over the sides and damaging your roofing and siding. Splash Guards are available in a wide variety of colors and styles. Protect your property from water damage by having a Splash Guard installed on your residential gutter system. Advantage Home Exteriors offers free estimates on Splash Guards and water diverters, so get in touch with us today.
Many homes in the Baltimore, MD area have their downspouts tied into an underground drain system to help with preventing water run off. Water run off can cause severe damage to your home's exterior in a short amount of time. With water not being properly directed away from your home, it can also cause damage to your foundation as well as your landscaping and yard.
Downspout extensions are used to appropriately direct the flow of water away from your gutter system and out to your yard at an area that is far away from your home's foundation. Doing so prevents foundation damage. Foundation damage can include cracks and chips in the foundation itself. Over time, this can lead to water seepage into your home. The water seepage can lead to a wet basement or moisture-filled crawl space and even the growth of mold and mildew.
