Signs You Need Eavestrough Repair for your Richmond Hill Home
Eavestroughs are prone to wear and tear. Here are some of the key signs you need to have your gutters repaired.
- Leaks: If you have sectional eavestroughs installed, you can expect to see leaks at the seams after several months. Leaks can lead to myriad problems. You should get your eavestroughs repaired as soon as you notice leaks.
- Sagging: When your eavestroughs start to sag, that is a sign you need to have them repaired. Eavestroughs sag because the system is unable to meet the required demands, decaying fascia or poor installation.
- Pulling away: Are you worried your eavestroughs are pulling away from the house? Pulling away is often caused by similar issues as those that cause sagging.
- Missing sections: With sectional eavestroughs, an entire section can pull away, be blown off by strong winds or fall to the ground. A missing section means the eavestrough is incomplete and will not direct water as it should. A repair is mandatory.
- Pooling water: Are you noticing pools of water at the base of the house? This is a sign of an eavestrough’s malfunction. You need to have your eavestrough checked.

Eavestrough Repairs Richmond Hill
Sagging, pulling away and overflowing are the three most common eavestrough issues homeowners deal with. Fixing sagging gutters requires re-sloping or realigning the entire eavestrough system to an effective configuration. In other cases, fixing these gutter systems requires replacing the affected section.
Factors that need to be considered when fixing these problems include the size, length and position of the eavestroughs. The number of downpipes must also be considered. Keeping these factors in mind is essential in keeping water from getting into your house. This also prevents the splitting of pipes, ice sheets on the walkways and overflowing gutters in winter.
You can count on Trades by Jack to take care of all your eavestrough repair. We specialize in:
- Downspout Repairs:
Downspouts can be loosened or even disconnected by extreme weather. If you don’t address this issue in time, you may end up with foundation problems.
- Repair of Damaged Pipes:
The eavestrough system needs to be inspected regularly to ensure there are no problems. Keep an eye out for potential leaks from joints, corners and seams. You should also inspect the eavestrough for trapped debris and overflow. These are the key signs that let you know you need repairs.
- Addition & Replacement of downspouts:
Have the gutter elbows and cross-sections become damaged or loose? These are signs some parts are damaged and need to be replaced.
- Re-Route & Redirect with Extensions:
If you notice water pooling near your house, this is an indication some of the gutter elbows and cross-sections are damaged or loose. You need to have them replaced to prevent further damages to your foundation. The main purpose of the eavestrough is to direct water from the roof and away from the foundation of your house.
Eavestrough Cleaning Richmond Hill
An efficient gutter system has to be clear of debris. That is why it is recommended to clean gutters at least two times a year. Cleaning is mainly done in fall and spring when there are more leaves, twigs, and branches falling into it. It is also okay to have the eavestrough cleaned every season or up to four times each year. Regular cleaning prolongs the lifespan of gutters.
Cleaning should always be done frequently in areas with many trees, more so pine trees. Here are the key reasons you should leave gutter cleaning to professional gutter cleaners.
Hiring professional gutter cleaners eliminates the need to climb up a ladder to do the cleaning yourself. Professional cleaners have special equipment and tested techniques that keep them safe.

You Worry About The Most
Eavestrough Replacement Richmond Hill
Eavestroughs are essential parts of a home that need to be repaired without delay, cleaned regularly and replaced immediately when damaged. When properly installed and maintained, gutter systems allow rainwater to flow freely without getting inside the walls, doors, windows and foundation.
Even with the best maintenance practices, you will still have to deal with wear and tear. Eventually, you will have to replace your gutters. You may have to replace them sooner if you are in a region that experiences a lot of rainfall.
Below are the key indications you need to replace your eavestroughs:
The issue with sectional gutters is that over time they start leaking at the seams. If you start noticing leaks months later, this is a sign that you need to have the gutters replaced.
- Missing sections:
Another common issue with sectional eavestroughs is sections pulling away, being blown off or falling off. When this happens, the gutter will not be consistent to carry rainwater away from your building. As a result, you will have to replace the missing sections as soon as possible.
- Pulling away:
If your eavestroughs are pulling away, this is an indication that you need to replace them. This is because when they pull away, they sag and cause issues.
When they are not replaced as soon as possible, sagging eavestroughs start pulling away from the house. This happens because of the decaying fascia, poor eavestrough installation or low-quality eavestrough system.
- Pooling water:
If there is water pooling at the base of your home, it is time to replace your eavestroughs because they are malfunctioning.
When installed properly, eavestroughs will protect both your home and landscape from water damage and erosion. We are happy to offer our innovative LeafGuard gutter systems that never clog or leak and require minimal cleaning.

Why Choose Professional Eavestrough Installation in Richmond Hill?
You may be tempted to install your own gutters to save money, but gutter installation is deceptively difficult and needs an expert hand. A professional will have the skills and knowledge necessary to set the slope just right, properly fasten the gutters and eavestrough, and so on.
There is always a risk of damaging the gutter system, your roof, or the fascia board where the gutter is fastened when you do the work yourself. This damage will not be covered under warranty in most cases if the work has not been done by a professional.
The greatest reason to avoid DIY gutter installation is, however, safety. Gutter installation requires working at heights, meaning there is always a danger of accidents. A professional will be insured and have the right training and safety gear to reduce the risk of such accidents. A professional will assist with debris removal after the work.
The LeafGuard gutter system installation process begins with a visit by one of our licensed gutter installers. The installer will inspect your current gutter system with the view of identifying the cause of your current woes. The installer will then give an honest assessment and make recommendations on how to fix the problem before the installation of the new gutter system. The installer will explain how the LeafGuard gutter system works, take measurements, and then give you an estimate on the spot.
At Trades by Jack, our estimates are free with no obligations or expectations. Schedule a free estimate and learn more about the LeafGuard cost and available incentives.
