In this month's home inspection photo, we see a good example of a leaky Bilco-style door. These doors tend to leak. Whatever is done to them to make them water tight initially, maintenance is need and constant vigilance to ensure that your door does not end up looking like this one.

Where To Drain Your Gutters - Well, not right next to your house like we see in this picture. The farther away from your foundation you can get it, the better.
Some municipalities require no more than 24 inches from the foundation though. In these cases, a trench, underground drainage system, or even an ejector pump may be useful.
