What Is 'Seamless Eavestrough'?
Seamless eavestrough is fabricated using a roll-forming machine installed in the truck box. This allows eavestrough of almost any length to be run out without joining seams periodically like do-it-yourself Vinyl Eavestrough. Eavestrough corners still require seams because eavestrough machines only run out eavestrough in straight lines.
I Have Specialty Roofing Such as Tile, Shake or Steel Roofing. Do I Need Special Eavestroughs?
Splashdown Eaves recommends a 6" eavestrough profile for tile and shake roofs. These roof types sit higher off the roof surface and during high water volumes frequently shoot past the front lip of 5" eavestrough. Steel roofing is very smooth and any ice that collects on the surface of the roof during wintertime can cause severe damage to the eavestrough if roof straps are not installed.
I Can See Water Collecting in My Eavestrough, Will They Leak?
Every eavestrough system will retain a certain amount of water. All corners must be sealed with caulking and it will cause a small amount of water to remain in the eavestrough. If the eavestrough is retaining an inch or more then it may need adjustment or correction.
Why Are My Eavestroughs Leaking?
There are a variety of causes for eavestrough leaks. Sometimes an eavestrough may appear to be leaking if the water is travelling behind the trough due to curled shingles, a lack of drip edge or missing roof flashing near end caps.
My Eavestrough Is Leaking from the Corners, Can't I Fix It Myself?
It is possible to repair corners or endcap leaks yourself. We recommend having a professional inspect it to ensure that you are attempting to solve the correct problem. It is very important that the correct type of caulking is used and that the instructions on the tube are followed carefully.
