When Was the Last Time You had an an Eavestrough Inspection?
You'd be surprised the difference an eavestrough inspection makes. An overflowing eavestrough can cause all kinds of damage to you home. From discoloured siding, or rotted fascia boards, to cracked pavement or flooded basements, the problems are serious.
The water flowing down your house can cause severe foundation problems over time and erode, destroy or waterlog your landscaping.
We understand why you might be putting off cleaning out your eaves troughs, it can be quite the task, not to mention it can be dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. Let us save you the trouble; we’ll do it for you!
Stagnant water can breed and attract pests
Trapped and stagnant water in your eaves troughs not only can cause damage to your home, but it also creates the perfect breeding area for mosquitos. 3 of the 4 stages of a mosquito’s pesky life is spent in water, and by leaving your eaves troughs blocked, you are allowing these annoying, disease carrying insects to multiply on your property.
Along with mosquitos, stagnant water in eavestroughs can attract other pests including birds, rodents and bees. Let us clean that up for you before things get out of hand.

Ice damming and freezing water
You might think that ice damming is caused by issues with your eave troughs, but really the root cause of most ice damming is heat escaping from your attic. The heat coming from your home will escape and melt the snow on your roof, causing it to run along the roof and into the eavestroughs.
This water running into clogged gutters cause damage to both your roof and your eaves troughs, as well as cause some dangerous falling icicle problems. The damming can force the water back up into the roof, which can cause severe rotting. Clean gutters, and proper application of Ice & Water will prevent this water damage.
Roof damage is always to be avoided. Eavestrough cleaning helps prevent damage to shingles over winter.
Solar panels and other roofing technology
These days, it is not uncommon to find homes that have solar panels, a lot of which are installed onto roofs for overall efficiency. Having solar panels on your roof means that they are subjected to the same harsh elements that your roof and eaves troughs are, which can cause a build up of dirt and debris that will begin to affect the amount of energy they can bring in.
