There are several benefits when installing a gutter splash block. Your entire guttering system is an important component that keeps your home protected from water damage. Rainwater can have an impact if it was allowed to simply pour off the roof eaves to the ground below. Therefore, a gutter system channels the water safely from the roof to the ground below but this flowing rainwater can have a damaging eroding affect upon the soil causing possible water damage to your home’s foundation. Using a splash block, or pad, helps direct the water away from the building avoiding any potential erosion.
Install Splash Blocks
To prevent water damage to a building’s foundation, install large splash blocks that can handle heavy water flow directing it away from the house. Since the splash blocks take a water beating over time, check these periodically making sure they are not broken or are deteriorating. You can also get creative adding a touch of art to your rainwater drainage by using specifically designed splash blocks. Many art stone retailers offer a variety of designed splash blocks to accent your home and yard.
Installing art themed splash blocks not only provides a safety feature to your home, but you also benefit by incorporating these into your landscaping adding decoration to your property.
