Eavestrough & Downpipe Installation
Eavestroughs, also known as gutters or rain gutters, are a type of channel that collects rainwater and directs it away from a building’s foundation. Eavestroughs are typically installed along the roofline of a building and are designed to carry water to downspouts, which then release the water away from the building’s foundation.
Eavestroughs are an important part of a building’s construction for several reasons. First, they help prevent water damage to the foundation and basement of the building. By directing rainwater away from the foundation, eavestroughs help prevent soil erosion and water infiltration, which can lead to leaks, mold, and other structural problems.
Second, eavestroughs can also help prevent damage to the roof itself. By collecting and carrying water away from the roof, eavestroughs help prevent water buildup that can lead to roof leaks, rot, and other damage.
Overall, eavestroughs are an important component of a building’s construction, providing both functional and practical benefits. Proper installation and maintenance of eavestroughs can help protect the building from water damage, prolong the life of the roof, and prevent costly repairs down the road.
