Frequently Asked Questions

What do eavestroughs and gutters do?

Eavestroughs form the system that drains moisture away from your home. They play a crucial role in protecting your home from moisture buildup, pooling and structural damage.   

Rain, snow and other atmospheric moisture that collects on your home drains down through the eavestroughs and away from your home. A good installer (like the pros at Rümi) will ensure water runs downhill, toward the street or into a trench. This prevents pooling and damage to your home’s foundation.

If your eavestroughs look like they are in a state of disrepair or disarray, they probably need to be replaced or repaired. Here are the telltale signs your eavestroughs are ready for a full replacement:  

  • Cracking, peeling, splitting. Small visual imperfections aren’t just about looks. It’s a sign that your eavestroughs are starting to fail. 
    As more weather and water meets your gutter system, these cracks and spits will grow larger. If water leaks through, it can damage other parts of your home’s exterior.   
  • Sagging eavestroughs. If your eavestroughs are sagging or visibly warping away from your home, it’s essential to start the replacement process. This means there is water trapped in the eavestroughs and that the drainage is not functioning.   
  • Peeling paint. Eavestrough paint is designed to withstand regional weather. In Alberta, that’s extreme hot, extreme cold and everything in between. 
    So if your paint is peeling, it’s a sign that your system is at the end of its life. If you can see orange specks underneath, this is a sign of rust. There could be a leak somewhere causing the rust, which may mean water is reaching other parts of your home exterior.   
  • Pooling. If water is pooling around the foundation of your home or on your lawn, your gutter system isn’t doing its job. If your eavestroughs are still in good condition, a repair or unclogging might help to direct the water elsewhere. If repair doesn’t help, it’s time to replace!  
  • Mildew and water damage. Water damage or mildew on your home under the eavestroughs or around the foundation are more signs that water isn’t draining correctly.

New eavestroughs should last you anywhere from 20–25 years — sometimes longer! It’s worth replacing your gutters if there is damage. With routine maintenance, this solution is cost-effective and will give you peace of mind for decades.  

Replacing your aging eavestroughs will benefit your home and wallet in the long run. Here are some benefits to installing new eavestroughs:  

  • Avoid or reduce costly repairs. When pooling, mildew or water damage is present around your home, it’s a sign that your eavestroughs have failed. When not replaced in a timely manner, your eavestroughs could be exposing your soffit and fascia board to damage.   
  • Avoid pooling water. Eavestroughs that don't drain or aren't draining aren’t doing their job. Structural damage can occur when old or failing eavestroughs are not repaired or replaced quickly. A new system will be perfectly tuned to your home exterior for optimal drainage.   
  • Long-term protection. On average, a new eavestrough system will last you 20 years or more. Replacing it before damage occurs can give you peace of mind for years to come.   
  • Style. Your eavestroughs should complement the look of your home. Many customers arrange the timing of a new eavestrough installation with the installation of a new roof. When it’s time to replace them, your home exterior will look refreshed, stylish and up to date. Boost your curb appeal!   

Eavestroughs and gutters both manage the effects of moisture and weather on your home. While they are virtually the same, gutter is a more general term referring to any type of trough.   

Eavestroughs are home-specific, referring to the troughs affixed to your home exterior. They direct rain and moisture down spouts and away from your home’s foundation. A professional eavestrough installer will position them to drain downhill, into the street or into a trench. The goal is to avoid pooling near your home’s foundation or on your lawn.

In some cases, re-sloping your eavestrough may help fix drainage issues. If only one section of your eavestrough system is in disrepair, we can replace that section rather than the entire system. However, we never cut and seam eavestrough segments together.   

If your eavestroughs are approaching the end of their lifecycle, peeling, splitting or causing major damage, it’s best to consider a full replacement. In many cases, this is the most cost-effective approach.
