The Importance of Eavestrough Maintenance

If your home or business is in need of maintenance or roof repairs to its siding, soffits, fascia, or eavestroughing, Century Roofing Limited’s knowledgeable, experienced, and skilled roofing contractors will professionally assess the damage, provide you with a clear, written estimate, and complete the repairs efficiently and without delay.


Having properly maintained and working eavestroughs is important to every home and business. Eavestroughs are important because they correctly and efficiently control the flow of water from the roof to the ground, and away from the foundation of your home. You also never want a downspout to drain directly into the weeping tiles below ground or near the foundation as it causes water damage to the foundation.

Gutters or eavestroughs play an important role in keeping the inside of your home dry. Every eavestrough needs to have a downspout that drains the collected water away from its roof. You never want a downspout to drain water directly onto a lower-level roof; this will cause water and ice damage to the shingles and roof deck underneath. It must always drain into a lower roof’s eavestrough.


In either case, the result is water coming into the house at the roof or foundation level that causes things like mold and rot, which compromise the entire structural integrity of the house as well as your health.


Installation is best left to the professionals, like the contractors at Century Roofing Limited, who use a forming machine to construct seamless eavestrough. We recommend using a thick gauge metal of aluminum – it’s the industry standard as it never rusts, unlike steel, and it’s weather resistant, unlike plastic. Professionals also make sure the entire eavestrough is pitched correctly.


Maintenance is another key factor to your eavestrough’s longevity. Eavestroughs must be cleaned out on a regular basis and a variety of gutter guards are available to simplify this task. The façade of your home is one of the most important pieces of your property’s curb appeal and value.
