Signs You Need Eavestrough Repair for your Markham Home
Several indicators let you know your eavestroughs are due for repair. They include the following:
- Leaks: If you have sectional eavestroughs installed, you should keep an eye on leaks at the seams. When poorly installed or due to wear and tear, sectional eavestroughs tend to leak at the seams. If you notice leaks, repairs might be needed.
- Sagging: When the eavestroughs start to sag, it is definitely time to have them replaced or repaired depending on how long you have had the system. Sagging is caused by the system’s inability to meet the necessary demands, decaying fascia or poor installation.
- Pulling away: Eavestroughs that pull away from the house are the same as sagging eavestroughs. The problem can be caused by similar issues as those that cause the sagging problem.
- Missing sections: At times, with sectional eavestrough systems, entire sections may pull away, be blown off or fall off. A missing section means there is no eavestrough to redirect water from your home. You have to replace the missing sections immediately.
- Pooling water: You need to repair or replace your eavestroughs if the water is pooling at the base of your home. This is a sign of a malfunction.

Eavestrough Repairs Markham
There are several eavestrough problems that homeowners have to deal with. The main ones are eavestroughs pulling away, overflowing eavestroughs, water pooling and eavestrough sagging. In most cases, correcting these problems involves fixing the sagging gutters, realigning misaligned eavestroughs or re-sloping gutters. At times you may have to replace the affected eavestrough sections to fix these problems.
Taking the proper considerations during the installation and repair of eavestroughs can help prevent myriad problems. The important factors to consider include the size, length, position and the total number of downpipes on your house. Timely repairs will help prevent ice sheets on walkways, water from getting into your home, splitting pipes and overflowing in winter.
We specialize in these eavestrough repairs:
- Downspout Repairs:
Extreme weather can cause downspouts to be loosened or even disconnected. If the problem is not addressed in time, it may lead to damages to the foundation of your home.
- Repair of Damaged Pipes:
The eavestrough system has to be inspected periodically to ensure everything is in good condition and working as it should. You have to watch out for leaks from seams, joints, and corners. You also need to inspect for trapped debris or overflow. These are all signs that you need repairs.
- Addition & Replacement of downspouts:
Have your cross-sections and gutter elbows become loose, or are they damaged? This is a sign that some components and parts have been damaged and should be replaced.
- Re-Route & Redirect with Extensions:
The main purpose of eavestroughs is to divert water away from the roof and foundation of your home. If you start noticing water pooling near your house, this might be a sign that your gutter elbows and cross-sections are damaged or loose. You need to get them replaced in order to prevent further damages to your foundation.
Eavestrough Cleaning Markham
Cleaning your gutter system at least twice each year will make the system more efficient. Cleaning should be done mostly during fall and spring when more leaves, twigs, branches and other debris fall into the gutters.
Getting your gutters cleaned each season or four times each year will not only maintain a good performance but also extend their lifespan. If you are in an area with lots of trees, you should consider cleaning your gutters more frequently.
Here are the four key reasons you should have your eavestrough cleaned by a professional:
There are over 160,000 ladder injuries each year. Getting the gutters cleaned by a professional reduces the possibility of ladder accidents.

Eavestrough Replacement Markham
To enhance longevity and performance, eavestroughs are crucial parts of a house that need to be cleaned regularly, repaired or replaced several times each year. When installed and maintained properly, the gutter systems will allow water to run freely and prevent water from getting inside your walls, doors, windows, and foundation.
You will have to repair or replace your eavestrough eventually. The timely replacement of eavestroughs prevents damage to your building, more so when there is heavy rainfall. But when should you replace your eavestroughs?
Here are the key indicators you need an eavestrough replacement:
Sectional gutters are prone to having leaks at the seams. This is common after wear and tear. If you notice leaks at the seams, this is an indication that you need to replace your eavestroughs.
- Missing sections:
Another common issue with the sectional eavestrough systems is that an entire section can fall off, pull away or get blown off by strong winds. This means you will end up with a gutter that is not consistent to divert water away. A replacement will be needed.
- Pulling away:
If your eavestroughs are pulling away from the house, this means they will be sagging and causing problems. You should get them replaced as soon as possible.
When poorly maintained and not replaced fast enough, eavestroughs start to pull away from the house. This is caused by poor installation, low-quality eavestrough systems, or decaying fascia. Sagging eavestroughs should be replaced immediately.
- Pooling water:
If you notice water pooling at the base of your building, this indicates a problem with the gutter system.

Quality Eavestrough Installation in Markham Done in Just One Day
We usually complete LeafGuard gutter installation in a day or less, thanks to the system’s seamless design. As soon as we get the LeafGuard system to the site, we will begin disassembling the old gutter system. You need not worry about discarding the debris as this is part of the package. We will then custom form the gutters on-site using your home’s exact dimensions. We have a special roll-forming machine and other tools and equipment for this.
Once the gutters have been formed, the installer will insert hangers two feet apart, followed by the connection of the gutter system to the fascia board. High-quality screws and internal fasteners that can withstand the harshest weather are used to hold the gutters in place. Finally, we attach and reinforce the downspout.
