What are Eavestroughs?
Eavestroughs are gutters fixed beneath the edge of a roof to control water flow.
The purpose of eavestroughs are to control the flow of water from the roof to the ground. If water gets into your foundation, it can cause many issues including getting mold in your home, or even a crack in the foundation of your building. The location of your downspout is important to ensure that the water is properly directed away from your home. Another purpose of eavestroughs is to protect the nearby ground from erosion, which happens overtime if water falls directly off your roof to the ground near your home, washing out gardens or softer materials nearby. Eavestroughs prevent backsplash, which occurs when no eavestrough is present and the water falls directly onto the ground and dirt splashes onto your building or deck. This results in dirt splashing all over the siding and lower windows of your home, can create water stains on brick or wood, and shortens the lifespan of a deck or patio.
These issues are preventable with the installation or reparation of eavestroughs.
