Once again, you’re fumbling for the front door keys during a downpour and being doused by a steady sheet of overflowing rain; you know it’s time to finally do something about that eavestrough! With leaking eavestrough, water is no longer being effectively drained away from the foundations of your home; and not only is that very inconvenient, it can cause costly damage.
The Importance of Checking Your Eavestrough
Eavestrough problems can lead to:
Mold/Mildew in Attics, Basements, Ceilings and Wall Spaces
Rotten Wood on Your Siding and Roof Edge (eaves, fascia, soffit)
Landscape Erosion (dead flowers & plantings)
Dirty Clogged Gutters

So what’s the best remedy for your particular situation? Think of eavestrough problems in two basic categories: performance and appearance. In other words, you want to replace your eavestrough either because they’re leaking or they’ve become an eyesore – possibly even both! Within each category, your problem could be due to one of several factors. Eavestrough might be leaky because they were improperly designed or installed, have become worn or warped, or clogged with debris. Eavestrough might be unsightly because the metal has warped or the coating has faded or become chalky and gritty. The solution may be the installation of new eavestrough or simply a proper eavestrough protection system.
