Types of Downspout Extensions
The RainChute EZ® Downspout Extension is an above-ground downspout extension that installs easily to direct water away from your foundation. RainChute EZ® is best used in a landscaped area.
Our RainChute® Downspout Extension is a recessed downspout extension that sits flush with the ground. It’s best where the lawn goes up to the foundation since lawn mower traffic won’t hurt it. Both the RainChute EZ® and RainChute® are designed to flush away leaves and debris, keeping the drainage channel open.
The LawnScape™ Outlet is a pipe buried from the downspout to a special LawnScape™ outlet that lets the water out onto the surface, while camouflaging the end of the pipe. The lid comes off for easy cleaning, minimizing maintenance for your home. The LawnScape™ Outlet is best used for downspout extensions over 8′ long.
All of our gutter downspout extensions are a quick and easy installation and take less than an hour. Any one of these downspout extensions can be used to effectively keep damaging roof water away from your foundation.
Why Extend Your Gutter Downspouts?
When your gutters discharge water next to your foundation, much of it can seep directly into the soil around your home. This can significantly add to basement leaking, and it can even contribute to foundation issues. By installing any combination of our downspout extensions on your gutters, this problem can be averted.
A downspout extension is a simple, affordable solution to keep roof water away from your foundation and avoid bigger, more expensive issues. Our RainChute® and RainChute EZ® are a low-maintenance option that will never clog!
To add the greatest beauty and appeal to your landscaping, consider installing our LawnScape™ Outlet as an underground extension to your downspouts. Its green color blends in with your lawn and lawn mower traffic won’t hurt it. A buried pipe directs water away from your home and onto the surface through the special LawnScape™ outlet. The lid comes off easy for cleaning.
All of our gutter and downspout products are a great compliment to your existing basement waterproofing system.
