Eavestroughs & Downspouts Calgary
Eavestroughs, sometimes called gutters, are located at the bottom of the roof edge and are fastened to the Fascia. Rain and melted snow flows from the roof in to the Eavestrough. Eavestroughs are installed with a slight slope to direct the water into the Downspouts. The Downspout is a vertical drainpipe that is positioned to further channel and direct the water away from the walls and foundation of your home. When installing an Eavestrough and Downspout System, careful consideration is taken to calculate the roof area and in turn the water shed capacity. This calculation will determine the number of Downspouts required and their locations, ensuring adequate flow and proper drainage. Eavestroughs and Downspouts come in a variety of colors to complement your exterior.
