The Eaves Pro| FAQs

1. What is the lifespan of eavestroughs?

Typically Aluminum eavestroughs will last 20 to 25 years with proper installation.
How do I know if I need new eavestroughs?
a) Eavestroughs are leaking at the corners.
b) They may show signs of corrosion (pitting).
c) Eavestroughs are falling away from fascia boards.
d) Especially if the existing eavestroughs are the older 4 inch size
e) Existing eavestroughs are the older nail and ferrule – with nails coming loose and falling out.

2. Do I need to be home for the quote to be complete?

No, generally you do not have to be home. You have 2 options.
a) We can meet with you personally for your quote. We will walk around your home and go over the details regarding your water draining needs, soffit, fascia, siding or window/door requirements.
b) We can also simply visit your property and walk the exterior of the home in your absence. Or also look at your property through Google Map. Once complete, we email the estimate to you. We can go over the details of the estimate with you regarding any additional information or questions you may have.

3. Do you install roofs?

No, our focus and specialty is exterior aluminum work. This includes eavestroughs/downpipes, soffit/fascia, siding (vinyl), windows/doors and gutter guard systems. We have a preferred roofing contact that we are happy to refer you to. We let roofing companies focus on roofs.

4. Do you require a deposit?

On the average home project, we do not require a deposit. Most of our installations only require authorization of the agreed upon work with payment at completion. We do however require a deposit for larger and more extensive custom projects and installations.

5. Am I required to be home when the project is being installed?

No, you are not required to be home, as we collect the necessary information related to your job during the estimation process, at time of job acceptance, and when booking your installation date.

6. How do I prepare my home for your arrival?

We request that all vehicles be removed from the driveway and parked either across the street or down the road, giving us ample room to work, as our installation equipment generally takes up a lot of space. Additionally, we make the long lengths of seamless eavestroughs on-site right from the installation machine in our trailers. Also, please ensure that any vehicles that you require the day of the installation are removed from the garage as the driveway may be blocked off and used as our team worksite. Please try to ensure that vehicles (trailers, boats, etc) are parked approximately 15 feet from the perimeter of your home to ensure that nothing is damaged during tear down of existing materials. Children and pets should be kept away from the job site, and we appreciate it if animal feces are picked up prior to our installation. Keep in mind, we require access to your front and back yard, and to a working exterior electrical outlet.

7. I also need a new roof. Which job should I complete first?

We recommend that you have your new roof installed prior to our work, as roofing ladders can cause damage to eavestroughs. However, depending on your needs, timing and urgency to complete the work we can complete the eavestroughs first if preferable. There are several professional roofing companies that have the knowledge to complete the work without causing damage to new eavestroughs. If you elect to have your roof installed first, please ensure that the new roof installation includes a drip edge.

8. How many times a year do you need to clean your eavestroughs?

Eavestroughs should be cleaned at least once annually depending on the amount and types of trees you have surrounding your home. This can be practically reduced by installing a gutter guard system.
