Eeavstrough also known as a gutter is basically a drain pipe or channel around the roof edges to safely collect and drain all the rainwater flowing from the roof. These eavestroughs are made from the aluminum coil by rolling them out from a gutter machine. We typically replace old ones with new 5-inch K shape eavestroughs. We also install 6-inch K shape eaves but those are mostly required for roofs with bigger and steeper slopes.
New eavestroughs come in various colors but white and black colors are the most common ones selected by most home owners.
Do I need new eavestroughs?
Some of the common issues such as leaky corners, sagging eavestroughs, or eavestroughs filled with leaves can be fixed as long as the eaves are not too old, dented, or out of level.
We provide free inspections with photo reports to help you decide what needs to be done.
Can one section of eaves be replaced?
It is possible to replace individual sections of an eavestrough as long as it is 5 inches and not 4 inches wide in size. We typically replace a seamless section from one joint to another so there is no joint in between.
One caveat is that the color and shine of the new section will not match your existing eavestrough completely and may be slightly off-putting.
How much time does it take to repalce gutters?
A typical eavestroughs job in Brampton or Mississauga would take about one to two days to replace the entire edge depending on the size of a particular job.
Our team would start in the morning by removing old gutters first before starting to install the new ones. They may finish by the end of the day or may have to come back the next day depending on the size and difficulty.
