What Are Eavestroughs and what Purpose do they Serve?
An eavestrough or rain gutter is a narrow channel or trough which collects and diverts rainwater shed by the roof. The main purpose is to protect a building’s foundation by channeling water away from its base. The gutter also helps to reduce erosion, prevents leaks in basements, and protects paint or stained surfaces by reducing exposure to water. The water is collected by the eavestrough and fed down a downspout from the roof edge to the base of the home where it is either discharged or collected for later use.
How do I Protect My Eavestrough or Gutters and Downspouts From Debris?
We love Mother Nature …just not in our gutters. When GutterFilter completely seals the top of your gutter system, there is no room left for leaves, seeds, or maple tree helicopters. Birds and wasps cannot nest, mosquitos cannot breed and it helps prevent ice buildup inside the gutters.
When snow falls, without GutterFilter, it fills your gutters and can cause overflow and damage to your home. GutterFilter will protect your home from damage in winter. By keeping snow and ice out of the gutter in the first place, melting snow flows right through GutterFilter and out the downspout.
Most importantly protecting the eavestrough from the collection of leaves and other debris can help prevent the downpipes from blockage.
How Often Should I Have My Eavestrough and Drainage System Maintained?
After a hard winter where we have many freeze / thaw cycles, corners and seams that had a perfectly good seal can open and cause leaks. This can adversely affect parts of the building beneath. The expansion and contraction from the ice is the primary culprit. If gutters and downpipes are in good shape, a good quality seal can do the trick. It’s recommended that the old seal is removed and the metal is cleaned with a wire mesh scrubber for the best adhesion for new materials being applied. As part of the regular check-up, the correct slope should be maintained to prevent additional weight from sitting water that can cause the eaves to pull away and fall off the building and make sure all the downpipes are free of debris and properly flowing.
In some extreme situations LeafGuards and filters may still need to be cleaned occasionally depending on the type and degree of foliage surrounding the building. Regular maintenance should also be on the to do list as a priority if you live in these beautiful surroundings. An ounce of prevention can go a long way.

The process begins with a simple phone call to the insurance company. You just inform the person on the phone that you would like to file a hail damage claim. They will ask a few identifying questions, and take your information. An insurance adjuster will be assigned to your claim, and will contact you to set up an appointment. Let us know when the adjuster is coming, and we’ll meet them there to represent you!
You cannot be penalized for a storm damage claim, however, the reality is that a hail storm causes damage to an entire area, which will likely result in increased premiums for all homeowners in the area, it makes sense to take advantage of the coverage provided by the insurance company.
Its unlikely but maybe your lucky, Hail doesn’t usually skip houses it covers the entire area. It is very unlikely that your neighbors would have damage, yet your home or business would not. If your claim has been denied, give us a call. We’ll come inspect the property, find any damage that is there, and walk you through the next steps. If the claim was denied, that’s not the end of the story. There are other steps we can take to help get your property restored
