Eavestroughs, also known as rain gutters or simply gutters, are what carry water that runs down your roof away from your foundation. If it weren’t for eavestroughs, water would seep into the foundation from every part of the house.
At Denali Exteriors, we offer steel or aluminum eavestroughs that will stand the test of time with Winnipeg’s severe weather conditions that can change 30 degrees in a twenty-four hour period. Whether you are looking for a residential or commercial gutter solution, we will make sure that water runs away from the foundation, keeping it intact and dry.
You also have the option of having us installing gutter guards, which will save you time (and possibly money) on having to climb up a ladder to clean out your gutters.
Climbing up and down ladders can be dangerous if you’re not careful and experienced. Gutter guards are great for preventing leaves and other debris from clogging up your eavestroughs, meaning you no longer have to put yourself in harm’s way.
To add an extra layer of security, you can have drip edge installed, which will divert water away from the fascia and into the eavestroughs. Installing drip edge will stop the water from going behind the rain gutters, avoiding the wood to rot and the gutters to potentially collapse.
Although we can install any type of eavestrough you want, we do suggest that you go with a baked-enamel finish, aluminum gutter. We definitely don’t recommend plastic.
Having a professional Winnipeg eavestrough company install your new gutters will save you time and money in the long run. Poor installation can cause water to overflow or drain back towards your foundation, which could lead to basement leaks or erosion issues. We’ll ensure that you have the correct number of downspouts, or downpipes, at the correct placements, ensuring proper drainage. We’ll also advise you if there are other factors affecting water foundation issues, such as natural slopes towards the foundation, in addition to the location of sidewalks and driveways.
