Eavestrough Repairs – one of those things you never think about until it rains

When it rains, it pours – and that’s when you think about eavestrough repairs

Eavestrough repairs

You probably never think about eavestrough repairs on a day-to-day basis. At least, not until it starts raining and you find out that they need repair.

It’s Spring, and this is a good time to have them looked at to determine if there has been any damage caused by snow and ice over the Winter.

Damaged eavestroughs or downspouts that aren’t in excellent condition are a potential for disaster. The rain has to go somewhere and when the eavestroughs and downspouts are in good condition the water goes where it’s supposed to –into your lawn, rain barrel or the drains in the street.

Here are some of the problems you could face if your eavestroughs are damaged and water is leaking:

  • wet basements
  • interior or exterior mould issues
  • soil erosion
  • stains on concrete, siding or stucco
  • deck damage

How do you know if your gutters need service

If you see any of the following things you should give us a call:

  • peeling paint on the sides of the house or the gutters themselves
  • rust
  • twisting or sagging eaves
  • pools of water or signs of mildew around the foundation
  • cracks in the eavestroughs

Why a Spring maintenance check-up is a good idea

Just like you get your car serviced in the spring just to make sure everything is in good working order, the same goes for your gutters.

Having a Spring eavestrough check up is economical compared to having major repairs done. The old saying, “penny-wise, pound-foolish” really applies here. There may be cracks or other damage that you can’t even see but could erupt into a serious issue in the future.
