Should I Repair or Replace My Eavestroughs?

The eavestrough is under constant pressure from the rain, snow, and debris that may fall into it, which means that they require extra care to remain in the best condition. When there’s an issue with your eavestrough, you can also expect issues with your siding, shingles, fascia, and soffits.

Listed below are the signs of eavestrough issues that indicate that you will need to do some gutter repair soon:

  • clearly visible gutter damage
  • gutters are crooked and bent
  • eavestroughs always clogged with debris
  • visible holes in the gutters

What is an Eavestrough?

An eavestrough is a surface water collection channel that runs around the outer edge of the roof, where it's usually mounted. This roof section catches water from melted snow and discharges it to the connected downpipes or downspouts.

Gutter is the generic term for eavestrough. However, there is a slight difference between the two. Eavestroughs are built at the roof's perimeter, while gutters are usually placed on some roof parts. Both serve the same purpose of collecting and draining out rainwater.

Why Should You Take Care of Your Eavestrough?

It's essential to take care of your eavestroughs because they are crucial to controlling the flow of rainwater on your roof. They protect your home's interior and exterior from water damage brought by excessive moisture, which can turn into molds.

Moreover, if your eavestrough is clogged with debris such as sticks and leaves, this can lead water to accumulate and cause a leaky roof. A poorly maintained gutter often attracts rodents and mosquitoes that can make it into their home. Some of these pests can bring diseases and wreak havoc into your home when left unchecked.

Taking care of your eavestrough also has several benefits like:

  • It prevents any potential flooding into your yard, especially when snow begins to melt at the start of spring
  • Reduces risk of soil saturation and soil erosion, which in turn saves your plants from withering due to excessive water
  • Remove standing water and prevent rotting or decaying of your ceiling, shingles, fascia, soffit, and other parts of your roof.
  • Provides a better home experience by giving you peace of mind that your house won't suffer any structural damage
  • It adds more years to the lifespan of your home and thus preserves some of its value should you want to sell or rent it in the future

What are Gutter Guards?

A gutter system isn’t complete without gutter guards. It’s the part of the eavestrough that protects it from clogging caused by leaves, twigs, dirt, snow, and other organic debris. We partnered with Alu-Rex to provide you with the best gutter guard that the market can offer. Alu-Rex has different types of gutter guards that can filter debris from micro-mesh for filtering small materials and sponge filtration for larger ones. They also have screwless perforated aluminum guards that prevent debris from being blown off by the wind.

When choosing the proper gutter guards, it’s essential to assess the type of debris commonly found in your gutter. The general rule is that the smaller the holes of the gear guard, the longer it will take to drain the water.

As such, you need to find the right balance between perforated holes that offer adequate drainage capacity while offering enough protection against debris.

How Often Do You Need Eavestrough Maintenance and Replacement?

Most professional contractors advise homeowners to clean their eavestrough at least twice a year, especially before the winter. However, if your gutter is near foliage that drops many leaves, such as a pine tree, you may need to clean it once every three months.

Cleaning your eavestrough is an essential part of home maintenance, especially before the winter months, to prevent freezing issues on your roof. Proper care can help preserve the structural integrity of your roof and save you from spending a few hundred dollars.

When it comes to replacing your eavestrough, it usually depends on its material and current condition. Aluminum and galvanized steel gutters typically last for 20 years, while high-end copper can last up to 50 years.

If your eavestrough is nearing its average lifespan, you should get it checked by a professional home repair contractor.

Below are a few warning signs you should look for to determine if your roof is due for a replacement.

  • Overflowing rainwater caused by blockage from organic debris such as pine needles, twigs, and leaves
  • Broken fasteners or nails laying on the ground caused by the combined weight of accumulated debris and rainwater
  • Tiny dents or cracks from wear and tear over the years can lead to leaks
  • Some sections of the eavestrough are leaking profusely during a rainy day
  • Sagging or tilted gutters were bent because of the added weight from organic materials or ice
  • Rust, especially at the bottom of the channel brought by wear and tear or a peeled paint
