How Does Seamless Aluminum Roll-Forming Work?
We receive our flat aluminum in a thick coil that is just under 12-inches across. We take this coil and put it on the cradle or spool on top of the aluminum extrusion machine. At Can-Cro we have these machines securely, and permanently, mounted in the back of our trucks to protect our employees. It also reduces the risk that the machine will be damaged on the way to your home, ensuring that there are no delays in your seamless eavestrough renovation.
Our installers carefully measure each part of your roofline and develop the water drainage plan for your home to ensure that rainwater is taken away from your roof, siding, and foundation. Once they are ready to make the eavestrough, the aluminum coil is fed into the first set of guide rollers and the aluminum roll former machine creates completely customized eavestrough for your home at the rate of 35 feet per minute.
Depending on your roof surface size, pitch, and the style you desire, you’ll be able to choose from our 5-inch and 6-inch traditional K-style eavestrough.
Using the Alu-Rex T-Rex® continuous hanging eavestrough system and their Gutter Clean Leaf Guards will keep your eavestroughs secure and protect your home and eavestrough from debris, nesting insects and birds. Your Can-Cro installer will let you know if leaf guards are right for your exterior renovation.
Seam-free Means Leak-free
Seamless eavestrough is a huge improvement over steel eavestrough sections that are formed in the shop and require soldering. Our aluminum eavestroughs will never rust and they will never have a seam every 10 feet, like the sectionals require. The same goes for the vinyl eavestrough sections that you can purchase at home supply stores. While they won’t rust, they do have seams every 10 feet and it’s our experience that they just don’t hold up to Ontario winters. The problem with these eavestroughs in our climate is that the UV breaks them down, making the brittle and likely to crack, and the O-rings break down and leak.
Aside from rust and UV breakdown, It turns out that the weakest part of any eavestrough project is the lap seam where one section of eavestrough is joined to another. If you have a 40-foot roofline, you would typically have at least 3 seams, which means 3 opportunities for the eavestrough to warp and break the seam. With all these seams, it’s a good bet that within 5-10 years, at least some of the seams will break down and begin to leak. With our seamless eavestroughs, you’ll enjoy leak-free eavestroughs for decades.
