5” and 6” Widths for Your Home’s Protection
Did you know that the standard width for eavestrough used to be 4”? Have you looked at your home’s eavestroughs lately? Are they leaking? Overflowing during a heavy rain? Hanging away from the house?
Can-Cro will create your eavestroughing right at your home or business, making it truly seamless. We offer the 5” width for most homes and have invested in a 6” extrusion machine so that homes with larger roof areas get the protection they need.
Has it Been 20 Years?
Seams on old-style eavestrough only last about 20 years. How old is your home and when was the last time the eavestroughing was replaced?
The next time it rains, throw on a raincoat and watch how your current system handles the water. There are a few problems you might see:
- Does the water leak out the bottom of the eavestrough? There may be holes in your eavestroughs, or the seams may be giving way. Either way you are courting water damage to the ground and your foundation.
- Does the water rush down the roof and overflow the eavestrough in the middle of a run or at a corner? There could be a few issues here — the eavestrough may be too narrow for your roof or it may be filled with debris. It needs to be looked at.
Our free estimate will ensure that your home gets what it needs.
Why Does Your Home Need Great Eavestroughs?
Eavestroughing is all about water management: collecting the water and getting it away from the vulnerable areas of your home… like your foundation.
Broken or missing eavestroughs can cause water damage to the ground under your roofline, stairs, decks, and any landscaping you have close to your home. Downspouts that aren’t long enough or eavestroughs that are too narrow can cause water to pool or run back toward the foundation. Once your foundation gets wet it can crack (when it freezes) or get mouldy.
To keep your eavestroughs looking good for the long haul, Can-Cro uses Alu-Rex T-Rex® continuous hanging technology that will keep the eavestrough tight to the fascia and your water going where it should be going: away from your foundation.
Keep Your Eavestroughs Clean
Once you get the correct eavestrough, you need to keep it clean. We can install leaf guards that keep out leaves, branches and other debris — and that prevent the pooling that can lead to mosquito breeding.
We also install Alu-Rex maintenance-free eavestrough protection on existing and new eavestroughs
