What Are Downspouts?
Downspouts are vital when it comes to protecting your home from rainfall. Gutters and downspouts have been shown to reduce the amount of damp and mold in a house. To avoid structural damage costing you a lot in the long run, you should always keep your downspouts in the best quality possible.
As rain falls onto the roof of your house it will drip into the guttering system. As long as the gutters are clean and free of obstructions, the water should flow steadily down the gutter and into a vertical pipe that reaches down the side of the house and into a drainage system. This is the downspout.
Without a downspout, you would find that the water collected by the gutter would fall out of the end of the gutter and splash everywhere as it hit the floor. There is no guarantee that the water would end up in the drain and it could cause more structural damage to your house by compromising the earth below.
As you can see, downspouts are extremely important for houses and buildings alike – particularly if you live in an area in which rain is the most common weather condition. GH Clark offers a range of downspouts that are certain to help you protect both your house and passersby from unruly rainfall.
How Much Do Downspouts Cost?
Unfortunately, we cannot give you a set cost of how much a downspout for your house is. This is because we don’t know what material it is made from, nor do we know how long it needs to be or the specific measurements.
However, we can give you an estimated cost of different types of downspouts. These pipes are most commonly made from PVCu plastic or cast iron metal. The latter is more expensive but also more durable, so you can decide whether you’d prefer low cost over high durability.
If you’re only replacing the downspout you might want to choose the material that your intact guttering system is made from. Plastic downspouts can cost around $25 per meter and cast iron can cost around $75 per meter.
Bear in mind that this is only the cost of the material and not the installation cost. You can give us a call at (410) 414-7060 for a free, no strings attached quote for your downspout. We’re open Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm.

No gutter system is complete without downspouts. The goal of a downspout is to carry water down to the ground level so it can be diverted away from the main structure or house. This is necessary as standing water running around your house can cause problems including foundational cracks, wet basements, and other water damage.
G.H. Clark contractors can determine the correct downspouts for your project. We use the best materials available to ensure your downspouts will withstand the elements for years to come. In addition, all labor and materials are warranted for your protection.
Our downspouts are available in all seamless gutter coil colors
