Signs You Need Eavestrough Repair for your Hamilton Home
The following signs usually show that the roof needs urgent repairs.
Sagging gutters: Sagging gutters will often pull away from the side of the wall; this is one of the easily identifiable problems. Sagging is easy to notice, and it doesn’t require inspection using a ladder. It is usually an indication that water is not being drained properly and can result in expensive repairs. The sooner sagging is repaired, the better.
Staining: Stained walls, windows, or fascia are signs that there is leaking. Mould growth in the attic can also mean your eavestrough isn’t working as well as it should, and water is finding its way into the house. In such a case, it will be better to inspect the whole roof, starting with the gutter system.
Fallen hardware: If you find parts of the eavestrough fallen on the ground, the entire system will have to be repaired. Check underneath the roof edge for any missing components of the gutter. If you find any, call a professional immediately.
Dampness: With a functional gutter, the ground near your house should be dry. The eavestrough will collect the rainwater and snow melts and drain them away from the house foundation. Excess dampness near the foundation can indicate that water is starting to pool there, putting the house at risk. If not repaired, the water will eventually seep into the floors and basements, causing more damage to the whole building.

Eavestrough repair Hamilton
Our eavestrough repair services always start with a free inspection. During that process, we evaluate the condition of all exterior elements connected to the gutter system. We will check your soffits, fascia, and eavestrough system to ensure they are functional and safe. The inspection is mandatory to us because it helps us figure out the kind of repair needed. We will determine whether a simple cleaning is enough in case there is a lot of debris, or if we should replace the system instead.
Trades by Jack also consider other elements such as the downspouts and soffits and the fascia. We check the size and position of each to ensure it is properly aligned with the eavestrough system. Our repair services include:
- Adding more downspouts: Extreme weather can take a toll on the downspouts. They can be disconnected or displaced by strong winds and a lot of rain. We’ll try to repair them. If that is not a viable solution, we’ll replace them instead.
- Redirecting the water: An eavestrough is supposed to lead water away from your house. Sometimes adding extensions to drive the water further from the exterior walls and foundations is necessary. Rerouting the water can also be required if your gutter elbows are broken or loosened. We’ll do whatever is appropriate to keep your foundation and external wall paint safe.
- Joints and seams repairs: Most gutter systems are connected by joints and seams. These will wear off as the gutter is being used — the rate of wear and tear increases when there is constant rain. The areas around the corners are also likely to weaken and tear. We’ll repair all these to leave your eavestrough system looking brand new.
Eavestrough cleaning Hamilton
Sometimes cleaning is the only repair needed to get an eavestrough to its optimal condition. If you don’t clean your gutters regularly, you will experience more problems, including overflowing water and leaks. Try to clean them at least every fall and every spring, when there are more leaves.
If possible, have the gutters cleaned at the beginning of every season, including before winter. That will allow the ice melts to flow easily through and not damage your home. The more you clean them, the longer they will last without being replaced — the frequency with which you clean can also depend on the availability of trees nearby. For instance, if you’re surrounded by pines that shed more often, you will clean more often.
Cleaning the gutters is also a dangerous practice if you’re not a roofing expert. Hire a professional gutter cleaner and enjoy the following benefits.
- Efficiency: Professionals offer services to save time and build a good reputation. You will have a more comprehensive gutter cleaning service within a shorter time when you hire one. Having the right equipment helps them save time and get you the desired results.
- Prevention of accidents: To clean your gutters properly, you will have to move a ladder around and maneuver through different sections of the eavestrough. You can easily get injured in the process. Professionals already have experience with such operations. Hiring them keeps you from risking your life and reduces your chances of falling.
- Extra services: Gutter cleaners will provide additional services like assessing other parts of your roof like the fascia. If they find minor repairs, they will fix them or advise you on the best steps to take. You get more value for your money.
Trades by Jack will ensure you get all the above benefits and more. When you call us to clean your eavestrough, we will inspect the system to ensure you don’t encounter decays on the fascia, mould and mildew growth, insect problems, and leaking. We’ll also give you a free consultation and professional advice.
Eavestrough Replacement Hamilton
Gutters have different longevities depending on the materials used to make them. Some may last for up two decades, while others can last a few months. Either way, you will have to replace them at some point, and you’ll need a reputable company to help you out.
Trades by Jack is here for all your eavestrough replacement needs. We will turn your dysfunctional gutter system into the most reliable utility. We also understand that not every damaged gutter needs to be replaced. If you’re undecided between repairs and replacement, the following signs should guide you.
A lot of cracks: Sometimes, cracks on eavestroughs can be sealed with a quality sealant to prolong the lifespan of the system. However, if the cracks start to increase, replacing the system will be a long-term cheaper option.
Broken fasteners and missing screws: If the fasteners keep breaking and some of the eavestrough keep missing, a replacement will be necessary.
Pulling away gutters: You can try to fasten gutters that are pulling away from the roof, but that will provide a temporary solution. A permanent fix will be to replace the whole eavestrough system and possibly the fascia boards as well.
Poorly pitched gutters: A properly pitched eavestrough will have the right slope to guide water away from the roof and the foundation. When they start to sag, their functionality will be compromised.
Perfectly working gutters will keep water from destroying your landscape or damaging your walls, doors, and pavers permanently. We can help you keep your eavestrough in consistent working condition to avoid all problems associated with a poorly functioning one. Give us a call today.
Eavestrough Installation Hamilton
Eavestroughs contribute a lot to the general quality of every home. Without them, the value of your property will reduce. Trades by Jack understands the crucial role these systems play in commercial and domestic buildings. That is why we have a fool-proof system that is simple but effective in getting you superior gutter systems.
Three steps to getting a new eavestrough
Step 1: Take Out the Old Eavestrough
We will evaluate the current system first to ensure it doesn’t work anymore. We will then remove it and clean the area for the new eavestrough.
Step 2: Cutting the Incoming Eavestrough
We’ll measure the side of your roof where the eavestrough will go, then apply those measurements in cutting the material. We usually use one-piece eaves, and precision is crucial. Cutting on-site also helps us with accuracy and helps maintain the visual appeal of the gutter.
Step 3: Hanging the System
After preparation and cutting, putting the eavestrough in place shouldn’t be very difficult. It still requires high skill levels that our team has to ensure it hangs properly. The entire process won’t take us more than a day.
