The automatic or retracting downspout extension offers the homeowner a simple way to direct water away from the building.
The retractable downspout extensions, available in lengths from four to nine feet, easily attach to the existing downspouts around the house. They work as if by magic. When heavy rain pours off the roof and into the downspouts, the retractable extensions uncoil to their farthest extent, to carry the flood of water well away from the building. When the rain stops, the emptied extensions recoil themselves into neat rolls of plastic.
