Concrete Splash blocks
Precast concrete splash blocks (downspout splash guards) are placed under down spouts to allow controlled drainage of rainwater.

Collection box
Leader Heads capture the water runoff from roofs where the volume or design does not allow a full gutter and funnels it into downspouts that take the water to the ground. Also called Conductor Heads, Scupper Boxes or Rain Heads, these products will collect a large amount of water in several possible ways. Placed at the end of a valley, the size of the box will allow much more water to pass through than a typical gutter. Used on a flat roof, they will collect water that passes through a parapet wall. They also may be used where two downspouts converge into one. Many custom homes use them at the top of the gutter for their beauty and uniqueness.

Downspout Hinge

Beyond the obvious practicality of having a convenient way to lift and move around your gutter downspout, there is substantial risk involved in not having a gutter extension securely and professionally attached and diverting water well away from your foundation. The downspout is arguably the most important aspect of the entire gutter system since it is this one section that funnels all water out and away from your home’s foundation. In the event that the gutter extension is improperly secured or otherwise compromised, water can seep into your basement and cause serious damage. Professional estimates for cleaning a flooded basement can range from $2,000 to $5,000. What’s worse, while most homeowners’ insurance will cover disasters, it will often times not cover damage occurring from the homeowner’s failure to perform expected maintenance. You can easily and quickly protect your home with the addition of the tough & reliable gutter Zip Hinge™.
