A Home Maintenance Tip from Archway Home Inspections

“Gutter downspouts draining next to the house foundation will damage the foundation and lead to moisture penetration into the basement.”  How many times have I written this inspection comment over the last 14 years?!  Collecting relatively large amounts of water from a roof and dumping it next to one area of the foundation is folly.  Downspouts should drain at least 6 feet from the foundation.
