The eavestrough is a narrow channel, or trough and it forms the component of a roof system that collects rainwater shed by the roof. The main purpose of the eavestrough is to protect a building’s foundation and runs the perimeter of the home. It guides the flow of water off of the roof into downspouts and this controls the flow of water around the home. The eavestrough system also helps to reduce erosion and it prevents leaks in basements and crawl spaces. It also protects painted or stained surfaces by reducing exposure to water and provides a means to collect rainwater for later use
The eavestrough can get damaged from a variety of weather conditions, such as high winds or freezing rain. Ideally, an eavestrough should provide a direct path for the water from your roof to the ground. To do that, it has to be free of debris and also be correctly maintained.
We make sure to correctly slope the eavestrough, remove clogs and clean it thoroughly. We also ensure that your eavestrough is doing the job that it is meant to do.
