Frequently Asked Questions

Damaged or improperly installed square eavestrougs can lead to extensive water damage, so home insurance providers may inquire about their condition during the quote process. 

A recent  study determined the average cost of a flooded basement in Canada to be $43,000. Square eavestrougs and downspouts are one of your home’s silent heroes. One inch of rainfall on an average roof generates over 7,000 litres of water; all of which must be moved away from your premises to avoid flooding or water damage.  Here are FAQs and responses you should know.

What are eavestroughs?

A gutter (or eavestrough) is a pipe that’s attached to your home’s fascia, perpendicular to the roof. It’s designed to capture water that falls onto the property. Pipes are usually made from metal or plastic and sit at a slight angle in order to direct the flow of water towards a downspout.

What is a downspout?

While the gutter sits horizontally, as the name suggests, a downspout sits vertically, carrying rainwater to ground level. In most cases, water is discarded either in a municipal drain or far enough from the property that it won’t compromise the foundation.

What is the life expectancy of eavethroughs and downspouts?

20 to 40 years for aluminum gutters and downspouts.
50 years for copper gutters and 100 years for copper downspouts.
20 years for galvanized steel gutters and downspouts.
25 years for vinyl gutters and downspouts.

How to maintain your square eavestrougs and downspouts

Most systems require very little maintenance for the pipes themselves, but it’s essential to clear both the gutters and downspouts of debris frequently to ensure they remain effective in heavy rain.
