GUTTER & EAVESTROUGH REPAIR – LONDON, ONTARIO

Older or neglected gutter and eavestrough systems that have not been properly maintained can loosen and sag due to rotting wood, ice damage, or debris build-up. This can cause, over time, gutters to overflow and runoff water to accumulate around and seep into the foundation of your home or building, as well as soil erosion which can further affect the integrity of your foundation. In the London and southern Ontario area, gutters and eavestroughs can become damaged due to significant ice build up, requiring your eavestroughs to need maintenance and repair before further structural damage occurs.

Ontario Gutter & Eavestrough Repair & Maintenance

The seasonal weather conditions in London & Southwestern Ontario can be brutal, especially on gutters and eavestrough systems. Ice build-up, freeze & thaw cycles, and heavy snows can cause tremendous strain and destructive force on all your gutter seams, corners, and joints. Some of the most common gutter repair services we perform include:

Gutter and Eavestrough Repairs in London and Southwestern Ontario:

  • Gutters and Eavestroughs coming loose from the roofline due to heavy snow and ice
  • Ice damage
  • Storm and tree damage
  • Gutter and Eavestrough damage due to localized deterioration of gutters and hangars

Often it is surprisingly affordable and well-advised to repair your eavestroughs rather than replace them. Generally, the vast majority of aluminum gutter and eavestrough systems have an expected lifetime of 15 to 25 years. If your gutter system is only 15 years old and has a number of seams that are leaking or failing, it may make more sense to repair them rather than replace them. Similarly, if you have a particularly old gutter system and you just want to prevent further damage for a few more seasons, temporary repairs can go along way to helping you realize your goal.

When Not to Repair Your Eavestroughs

When is repairing your gutter system not a good idea? Repairing or replacing an eavestrough system is a problem faced by homeowners in the London, Ontario region on almost a daily basis. One of the reasons for not repairing your gutters can be that you are getting a new roof. If you are replacing your roof, it is generally always advisable to install new gutters. The reason for this is that the roof and your gutters can be perfectly integrated for maximum efficiency.

Dealing with inadequate pitch, problems with flashing, improper downspout locations, outdated colors, old and damaged gutters, or other major gutter problems is most easily dealt with at the same time you are replacing your roof.

Gutters can also cause roof leaks. When gutters have been damaged with ice or debris, they can pull away from the house, damaging facia boards. The result is an opening where water can accumulate behind the facia and drain into the soffit and inside your home’s walls. In this case, a full replacement is probably not warranted, but timely repair will prevent further costly damage.
