Sapphire Roofing does more than roofing repairs, we also offer a range of services to maintain the overall integrity of your home. A correctly installed aluminum eavestrough, sot and fascia system will help prevent potential water damage and animal pests. This system has the important job of conducting water away from the foundation. As a result, it is vital to appropriately maintain it and address repairs rapidly, to prevent larger issues. Sapphire Roofing will work closely with you to recommend the best course of action.
Soffit, fascia, eavestroughs and downspouts prevent water damage, wet basements, along with unwanted animals that may want into your home.
To make an informed decision regarding your roof and it’s drainage system, it is important to first understand its parts. To start, the eavestrough is the narrow gutter that goes around the perimeter of your roof and its purpose is to collect rainwater or thawed snow runoff- sending it through the downpipe and removing it from your rooftop. The soffit is the bottom side of your roof's overhang, usually visible when looking up. Lastly, the fascia is the visually appealing border running along the side of the overhang that gives your roof an attractive finish.
We offer seamless eavestrough in 5" and 6" in a variety of colours to match your current home's existing aesthetic. Each piece is custom made on site with hand cut mitered corners to fit your home perfectly. Along with the eaves, we can work with you to replace the entire system including soffit & fascia for a fresh looking and a perfectly working drainage system.
A properly functioning eavestrough is an essential element in protecting your home. Some of the benefits of installing eavestroughs include:
Safe Water Drainage: Eavestroughs provide efficient water drainage from your rooftop. Without an eavestrough, you could experience chunks of debris plunging from considerable heights creating hazards to you, your friends, and your family members. This debris landing could also cause mud and dirt to splatter onto the walls of your home which could give the appearance of an unkept home.
Property Protection: When the water is not drained at a controlled speed it could oversaturate your soil, run down your foundation and eventually result in structural damages to your home such as basement flooding, under the house flooding, and cracked patios/decks.
Prevent Roof Rotting: The primary cause of rooftop rotting and mold formation is excess moisture accumulating in certain spots, generally underneath the roofs shingles. With a proper drainage system installed the roof will be capable of reducing the build up of condensation beneath the shingles and allow the roof to dry thoroughly and eliminate the risk of unwanted mold and rotting.
Improved Home Experience: Without an eavestrough water can drain off your roof like a waterfall, even at your front door. This will act as a huge inconvenience when you’re heading out for work in your day clothes or even when you’re having guests over who don’t enjoy walking through a cold, dirty flow of roof water. Installing an eavestrough will prevent this from ever occurring.
Eliminate Yard Flooding: When water is draining at an uncontrolled speed and taking various exit points off your roof, it could cause yard flooding. The oversaturation to your yard will not only cause damage to your lawn, but also other plants and greenery you may have such as your shrubs, flowers, and planted fruits and vegetables surrounding your home.
