Of all our services, eavestrough repair is perhaps the most important. After all, Toronto receives a fair bit of rainfall, and eavestroughs are vulnerable to water damage. When your eavestroughs fail, water leaks out of them. And that leak could lead to soil erosion, foundational damage, or seepage into the basement.
Homeowners often overlook the importance of keeping eavestroughs clear of dirt, debris and moisture. However, the damage that can be done by neglecting your eavestroughs is significant.
The longer you leave eavestroughs clogged, or semi-clogged, the more you are putting your home and health at risk. The best time for eavestrough cleaning in the Toronto area is in the fall after the leaves have come down from the trees but before the snow arrives.
When leaves are left to accumulate it puts a huge amount of strain on your home’s eavestroughs. In fact, a 20 foot eavestrough clogged with water and debris can weigh as much as 300 pounds. Can you imagine the strain that puts on your facia? No wonder so many eavestroughs are seen hanging off roofs after the snow melts.
You can avoid needing eavestrough repair in Toronto, though, by cleaning them twice a year in the fall and spring.
Eavestroughs are designed to move water away from the house. However, if it can’t drain properly, a host of problems can occur.
BASEMENT WATER DAMAGE
When eavestroughs overflow, water drips down the side of your house, leaving unsightly stains, and pools at the foundation. It then seeps into the basement where it can cause serious water damage. That can lead to thousands of dollars in repairs.
A dysfunctional eavestrough will cause excessive moisture outside as well as inside your home. That eventually leads to hazardous mould growth on the siding, foundation and in the basement or attic of your home. Breathing in mould spores causes headaches, respiratory problems and other serious health issues.
ROTTING AND WEAKENING OF WOOD
Too much moisture causes the wood on your roof, siding, soffits and sheathing to become weak and potentially rotten. Water that collects in your eavestroughs needs an open flow route to function properly and keep water away from structures that can deteriorate.
POOR CURBSIDE APPEAL
If you’re eavestrough is broken, damaged or hanging from your house it negatively affects the overall impression of your home. That can significantly affect its resale value. So if you’re selling your home, it’s practical to get an eavestrough repair in Toronto before listing it.
WET OR SLIPPERY CONDITIONS ON WALKWAYS
Keeping your eavestroughs clean also helps to protect guests to your home from being injured. An overflowing eavestrough causes water pooling around your house, which will freeze in the winter, potentially leading to slips or falls.
