A drainage system must be in every country house. It is very important to get this system right.to. wrong actions can lead to disastrous results – it can be a flooded basement, and puddles in the area in front of the house, as well as a leaky roof and constantly damp walls. Therefore, it is worth taking the installation of a drainage system with all seriousness. This system consists of three main and many different additional elements – these are gutters, and vertical downpipes, and drains through which water will flow.
When a drainage project is drawn up, first of all, the size of the gutters is calculated, as well as their ratio with the entire roof area and the amount of water that will drain. If the roof is pitched, and the area of \u200b\u200bthis slope is small, then only one pipe is needed to drain the water. If the area is large, then it is necessary to install several pipes and various additional elements. When creating a project, a rough plan is drawn up for the location of all pipes and gutters. After that, depending on the characteristics of other parts of the house, it will be possible to make changes. The drainage system must be installed after all finishing work on the facade.
The gutter can be rectangular or round. Rectangular may be more advantageous in design, but it has a small capacity and is likely to clog often. Round gutter is cheaper and much better, it is cheaper and its capacity is higher. However, not only the shape of the drainage system is important, but also the material from which it is made. PVC drain is considered the most popular – this material is very durable, strong, but it does not withstand heavy loads. Gutter systems made of copper are considered the most reliable, but this is an expensive material.
