Seamless eavestrough is just as the name implies – seamless. There isn’t a break in the eavestrough. Since there is no seam, there are no leaks. This is why they are the most popular type of eavestrough today. Each individual eavestrough is customized to fit your home. Estate Renovation Centre was the first company in Canada to offer seamless eavestrough 35 years ago and have been the leaders in offering up to date installation technology ever since.
The main purpose of eavestrough is to protect a building's foundation by channeling water away from its base. The eavestrough also helps to reduce erosion, prevents leaks in basements and crawlspaces, protects painted or stained surfaces by reducing exposure to water, and provides a means to collect rainwater for later use.
Water collected by the eavestrough is fed, usually via a downspout, from the roof edge to the base of the building where it is either discharged or collected. Water from eavestrough may be collected in a rain barrel or a cistern
If the exterior of your house has mold or peeling paint, it could be a sign that your eavestrough need fixing or replacing. Snow and ice can build up within the eavestrough, causing damage or leaks to the home. (It is a myth that eavestrough cause ice buildup – instead it is caused by heat escaping too quickly from your home.) Clogged downspouts and debris in eavestrough can cause them to pull away or sag from the home. They may not be pitched correctly, leaving standing water that attracts insects and mold.
Other signs that the eavestrough may not be working correctly are cracks in the foundation of the house or water in the basement. Clogged eavestrough can cause water buildup, forcing it to overflow and causing water buildup around the foundation.
Ice that continually freezes in eavestrough can be a pain in the neck for homeowners. Once ice has clogged the eavestrough or the drainpipe, thawing causes water to overflow the eavestrough, and subsequent freezing can lead to roof damage and dangerous ice patches on the ground. Understanding what causes ice build-up is the first step in solving the problem. The main cause of ice build-up on the roof has to do with Poor Attic Insulation. Heat escaping through the roof of the house melts the bottom of the snow that is on the roof. This melted snow trickles down until it reaches the edge of the roof. When it reaches the eavestrough, it is no longer warmed by the heat from the house and it freezes into ice. This process can eventually build up large amounts of ice on and around the eavestrough.
