While most people spend time worrying about the quality of their roof, they often neglect another essential component: the eavestroughs. Eavestroughs are used to funnel water from the roof away from your house.
It's not fun to get up on a ladder to clean out the eavestroughs. But over time, leaves and other debris can build up, blocking the flow of water. Blockages can cause the water to back up and overflow, and over time this can damage not only the eavestrough, but also the roof. Water follows the path of least resistance, and the last thing you want is for water to find its way into your home!
Weather and time can wreak havoc on your eavestroughs, causing them to become loose or sag, or separate completely from the house. It is important to have eavestroughs repaired as soon as possible, as the longer the wait, the more extensive the damage will be.
In addition to visible damage, signs of a problem with your eavestoughs can include new foundation cracks, erosion under the corners of your roof, and discolouration of siding.
At Fyfe's Roofing Inc., our experienced roofers can help solve your eavestrough problems. One of our staff members will visit your home to inspect the eavestroughs and determine the cause of the problem. Depending on the severity of the damage, we will either repair or replace your eavestroughs.
We also offer leaf guards that can be installed on top of your eavestroughs. These can be a valuable addition to your eavestroughs/gutter system because they keep water running freely, prevent clogs, and ultimately save money.
