Lead-Coated Copper Downspouts in Belmont, MA
On this Tudor home in Belmont, Massachusetts we installed brand new lead-coated copper downspouts. The homeowner was experiencing major leaks in their basement from a copper downspout that was cracked in multiple locations. Downspouts are extremely important in a roofing system because they direct water away from the circumference of the home. When downspouts are cracked or improperly installed, rainwater will not be directed away from the home and the water will pool around the base of the house. From there, water will enter the basement through the foundation. We decided that because of the multitude of rainwater and debris that end up in the gutters, these sturdy and large lead-coated copper downspouts were a perfect fit.
