Eavestrough & Gutter Installation
Diverting water away from your home’s foundation and its base is one of the most important functions the exterior of your home can play.
In order to divert rainwater or melting snow from your home, an eavestrough or gutter catches the water from the roof and channels it to the downspout. The downspout then redirects the flow of water away from the home to prevent damage from occurring.

Leaky gutters are a big problem. When they can’t divert water away from the house, it can cause issues inside the home. Though gutters are made of metal, they do have joints that can weaken and start leaking over time. This is a relatively easy fix. All that is required is reapplying the correct adhesive to reseal the problem area.
Installation Of Water Deflectors
Roofs tend to pool a significant amount of water to specific points in the eavestrough. When this starts to happen, it can cause water to pool and overshoot the eaves. Which is why the installation of water deflectors is so crucial. They help channel water back into the eaves to be adequately diverted away from the home.
Gutter Guard Installs
When installing new eavestroughs, it is smart to also have gutter guards installed. Gutter guards will stop blockages from occurring. When materials, such as leaves and twigs, get stuck in the gutter, it can cause the flow of water to back up and overflow. Left too long, this could eventually lead to foundation issues or leaks inside your home.
Heated Eavestrough & Downspouts
Heat Trace Cable Installs
Southern Alberta is known for its unpredictable weather, especially when a chinook is approaching. In fact, chinooks can often cause ice damning to occur frequently. Ice damming occurs when snow melts and refreezes in the eavestroughs, forming a ridge that hangs from the eavestrough on the home’s exterior. However, inside the eavestrough is where the problem area is.
Water will get backed up behind the ice damn and can cause it to leak into the home through the roof. If this happens, you could find significant damage to your walls, insulation, and more.
Installing a Heat Trace system can fix this issue. It melts the snow in the eavestrough allowing proper water flow to combat the ice damning.
Heat trace is a flexible, insulated cable that is laid in the eavestrough or downspout. These cables are heated by electricity and melt any ice or snow that gets trapped in the eavestrough. This prevents the damning from occurring and can prevent major water damage to your home.
Downspout Installs & Repairs
Your eavestrough and gutters are used to collects water and move it away from the roof. Meanwhile, the downspout is the vertical metal pipe connected to the eavestrough/gutter that then directs the water away from your property.
Usually, the downspout channels the water into a garden or alley far enough away from your property’s foundation to ensure it doesn’t affect its structural integrity.
