Who installs downspout drains?

Hello all,

I need to install a downspout drain on one side of my house and would like to get some estimates before I tear into myself. Who does this kind of work? The gutter companines I called won't return my calls. Landscape companies? Also, is there a rule of thumb for a reasonable price/linear foot? Thanks much

Downspout Drains

Your job is so small that most will not even want to mess with it. An outlet cost about 2.00, a 12 ft piece of downspout about 9.95, misc 10.00.
Labor, $35.00. Call a local carpenter and just have them do it. If you call for estimates, no one will return your call. No money in it. Good Luck

You can also try a sheet metal shop. But like said its to small for them to send a truck out. Go to home depot or lowes and get the things you need there to do the job.

Thanks for the responses, but I think that I wasn't clear in my original post. I need to install an underground downspout drain that will collect water from 2 downspouts and run it either out into the lawn or to the street. The downspouts empty right next to the foundation and that part of the lot has a slight negative grade so if I want to get rid of the water an underground drain is the only way to go. Thaks for the help.

Yes, you did lead us off the path a little. Now you need to contact a landscaper, or a company who does sprinkler or irrigation systems. They do this sort of thing. Good Luck
