Don't forget to check your splash blocks to make sure they are not broken or missing. Downspouts that pour water around the foundation of the house can cause basement/crawl space water or structural issues. Splash blocks remove much of this danger.

        Excellent point! Splash blocks help but it is better to add drain pipe away from the foundation. Stay away from most gutter covers...they don't work for the most part....and just get your gutters cleaned on a regular basis. We clean & repair gutters on a regular basis...you wouldn't believe some of the damage gutters cause when they are not maintained!

          You're right Andy, drain pipes are definitely the preferred method of water diversion. And in this case above ANYTHING would have helped him avoid this disastrous issue!
