Gutter / Eavestrough Ottawa

Gutter / Eavestrough Ottawa‘Honey, could you please do the eavestrough cleaning this weekend?’

That good old task we always seem to put at the bottom of our to-do lists which come back to haunt us year after year.We get it, it's not a fun job but somebody has got to do it. The eaves can collect leaves, branches and other (more unexpected) things that need to be removed on a consistent basis by the homeowner or a roofing expert.

In order to understand why this is so important, let us explain the purpose of eavestroughs. First, note that your eaves are designed to carefully drain any water from ice or rain that may be falling on your roof. They are an essential part of the roof edge and when they are not in working order, this can cause a ton of issues in your home. We encourage homeowners to use their eavestroughs cleaning as an opportunity to also inspect this area of your home for any issues. From small to extensive water damage, if the system is not draining properly you will pay for it. It is much better to catch and resolve the issue now before it becomes even bigger.

Did you know your roof has many different elements to it?

Your roof has many elements, from the shingles to the eavestroughs, these things are connected through the roof edge which can also be accompanied by one drip edge or many to ensure the draining occurs the way it should. There are many other edge benefits that could help in your decision of adding them to your roof.
Did you ever think there would be so many moving parts? That’s why each element should be carefully inspected upon cleaning to avoid any future problems, repairs and assess for risks. Better to fix something small now!

So the next time your husband or wife asks you to clean the eavestroughs, you now understand why and how to do it effectively! If you encounter any issues upon an inspection, feel free to contact your favourite Ottawa roofing contractors, we’re happy to help and provide cost-effective solutions.
