Seamless eavestrough is an excellent solution for avoiding leaks, and it provides a very clean aesthetic to your home. Seamless eavestrough can be run as long as the original roll of aluminum it’s formed from.
Additional benefits from aluminum eavestrough are its resistance to corrosion and ability to be manipulated by hand tools, making it a preferred choice for many eavestrough installers and homeowners.
An excellent way to prevent your aluminum eavestrough from becoming filled with leaves or debris is to use an eavestrough screen that is installed over the opening of the trough. It allows water to enter but leaves and larger debris to blow off.
If you are concerned about leaves and debris in your eavestroughs, we offer a leaf guard system called Alu-Rex Gutter Clean that will protect your gutters from debris.
Additional benefits from aluminum Debris buildup in your gutters and downspouts can cause blockages and back up the entire draining system. Over years of use, you should check your gutters for asphalt granules as smaller ones may be able to enter the perforated openings.

The top manufacturers of aluminum products have 20-30 standard colours each to choose from. There are ways to get a custom colour but they are expensive and with such a large variety of colours available it is usually not worth looking past the available colours.
The short answer is yes, we would recommend once in the spring and once in the fall. But of course that depends if you have trees hanging over your roofline or if you get lots of snow and ice at your house. If you see water spill over the edges in a certain place, it is probably safe to say there may be some debris blocking the water flow. It is best to prevent this to keep the water away from your home.
From the outside this may look the case, but what is really happening is the attic or roof not having enough insulation. The heat from the inside of the house rises to the roof and melts the snow. Then as that water moves down the warmer roof it goes right into the eavestrough which is exposed to freezing temperatures.
Bonus: Heat cable may not be answer, proper insulation in your attic may actually be the proper solution.
Eavestroughs and downspouts are an essential part of your exterior that protects your entire house from water damage. We will take the time to make sure that the eavestrough system on your house keeps the water away from your house.
Choosing us as your contractor would ensure that the water management plan for your home will last.
