Snow Removal

Don't Get Stuck In The Cold

Gutters and eavestroughs, if not properly cleaned and maintained before the cold and snowy weather hits, can be the sources of major problems. If your eaves and gutters are clogged with debris that prevents proper drainage of water, there may be two major issues.

First, the trapped debris mixes with draining water, which can freeze it into a thick mass. If this mass is sufficiently large, it can buckle the metal in your eavestroughs, bend it out of shape and open the door to a whole host of potential drainage problems.

Also, if your eaves and gutters are not properly cleaned, your risk of developing ice dams increases dramatically. Ice dams occur when water is unable to drain from your eaves and ends up being pushed back up under your shingles. This may result in substantial and expensive structural damage to your roof. While other factors contribute to ice dams, such as inadequate attic insulation, they are often caused or aggravated by obstructed roof drainage pathways.

Practical Tips for Your Eavestroughs and Gutters

Here are some important general tips and pointers from the pros with regard to eaves and gutters:

  • Modern homes tend to have a lot of overlapping roof elements. Remember that each and every section of your home’s roof should have eavestroughs to support proper drainage.
  • Installing or replacing gutters and eavestroughs is a job best left to the pros unless you have specific training and expertise.
  • Always choose aluminum gutters. Never use plastic ones. Aluminum is rust-resistant and far more durable and able to withstand the rigors of the Alberta winter.

Beware of Melting Snow

Another thing to keep in mind is that snow can melt very quickly in Alberta. Chinook effects can quickly erase accumulated snowfall, and spring brings a real risk of flooding in the region.

Here are some quick flood prevention tips from the Edmonton snow removal experts at Catch All Eavestroughing:

  • Have your property professionally graded to help direct water away from your house rather than toward it
  • Consider adding a retaining wall if your property has hills or steep slopes
  • Make sure your eaves and gutters are properly maintained and fully functional
