Evestroughs are crucial to protecting your home. If poorly maintained, troughs can become clogged with leaves and other materials preventing water flow away from your investment. This can result in costly basement flooding, roof damage, rot, and even siding damage. Other common problems include peeling and cracking paint, crumbling mortar joints and eavestrough ice jams in the winter.
These problems can be easily prevented through proper maintenance and installing a leaf guard. A leaf guard, such as Alu-Rex, is a mesh aluminum cover that ensures the gutter stays clean so that water can freely flow away from your home.
