Eavestrough Installation and Repair
Soft Metal Experts protects your greatest investment, your home. We do this by designing, fabricating and installing functional and beautiful eavestrough systems
While they aren't the most exciting items to be talking about, eavestrough and down spouts are essential to the functionality of your home. We utilize state of the art machinery to form continuous eavestrough on site with no seams. We also provide continuous hangers (screens) for new and existing eavestrough systems. This is essential if you live in a "leafy" area. This prevents from any large debris from entering your eavestrough, plugging the system and causing the eavestrough to over flow, damage the foundation and sometimes even drip own your head. It also reduces the effort required to maintain your eavestroughs. We recommending sweeping off the top of the eaves once per year.
We also produce splash guards and diverter flashings. This like the leaf guard system, enables the eavestroughs to function properly. It ensures proper water flow into your eavestroughs from your roof; opposed to running over your eavestrough or wicking along a wall eroding your stucco and potentially penetrating your home. Water damage is extremely costly and splash guards and diverter flashings is an excellent way to prevent water from entering and damaging your home.
It's also extremely important to examine how your roof line meets your eavestrough. It' crucial to keep the water flowing to where it is supposed to be flowing. New eavestrough may not be the whole solution to the problem if you are experiencing water running behind the eavestrough on to the fascia. Roofing should be lapped on top of a drip flashing. The drip flashing keeps water away from your fascia so it falls directly into eavestrough.
