Construction Performance Guidelines
EAVESTROUGHS OR DOWNSPOUTS NOT PERFORMING PROPERLY
Where provided, eavestroughs and downspouts shall collect water from the roof and drain it to grade. Where downspouts are not connected to a sewer, extensions shall be provided to carry rainwater away from the building in a manner that will prevent soil erosion.
One-Year - Work and Materials
Eavestroughs and downspouts not meeting the acceptable performance shall be repaired.
