It is important to have a good drainage system for water around the roof of the house. Water must flow away from the house, concrete and landscape as much as possible to avoid mold, mildew and corrosion.
Eavestroughs are meant to capture the water from your roof and carry it safely into a downspout – away from your soffit, fascia and foundation, where it can cause damage. Unfortunately, ordinary eavestroughs also capture leaves, twigs and other organic debris that will cause them to fill up with debris, clog and spill over during rainstorms. Rainwater spilling over from your eavestroughs will rot your soffit and fascia, wreck the landscaping below, overwork your sump pump and can causing basement flooding.
For anyone who has trees on or around their property, you know how many times a year the eavestroughing has to be cleaned out to keep them functioning properly.
