Whether you’re considering fascia and soffit replacement, having work performed on your roof soffit, or just want to reassess your home’s overall drainage system, our eavestrough installation and gutter guard services can help. Installing eavestroughs properly ensures that your property is effectively moving water runoff from rain and snow safely away from the foundation. Failure to account for proper drainage can lead to foundation erosion, a greater risk of water damage in your lower level, and even roof fascia and soffit problems. Homeowners in London, Ontario can trust the professionals at Davidoff Roofing to professionally install eavestroughs and gutter guards that will protect your home.
The Importance of Gutter Guard and Eavestrough Installation
Your property’s gutters are essential to ensuring water runoff from the roof properly drains. Unfortunately, gutters can clog for a variety of reasons. Leaves and twigs from nearby trees can enter them and clog downspouts, which doesn’t just prevent water from draining properly, but can also add excess weight to them and cause them to sag. Clogged gutters can also result in damage to the overall drainage system. That’s where installing eavestrough and gutter guards can help.
Eavestroughs work to collect rainwater and move it away from the foundation while gutter guard coverings are designed in a way where larger debris – such as leaves, twigs, pine needles, and more – don’t enter the drainage system. This means that only water will enter and drain, and any sort of clogging that can lead to problems is significantly reduced. At Davidoff Roofing, we provide exceptional exterior renovations in London, Ontario, and can transform your home’s appearance.
Benefits of Installing Gutter Guards
Investing in properly installed gutter guards for your eavestrough can save you time, effort, and costs. Consider these benefits when choosing to have gutter guards installed:
Prevents Rust and Corrosion
When wet leaves and debris sit for long periods of time in your gutters, you increase the opportunity for rust or corrosion to form. Installing gutter guards will prevent debris like pine needles, pinecones, and leaves from entering your gutters. By adding them to your eavestroughs, you can extend the life of your gutters by preventing rust and corrosion.
Prevents Pest Infestation
Gutter guards stop insects and other animals like bats, squirrels, and mice from entering and breeding in your gutters by creating a protective barrier. As your gutters move the water away from your home, the water becomes less stagnant and a popular area for pests to visit.
During months of extreme heat, gutter guards offer additional advantages against fires. Fire embers can travel long distances and quickly surround a home. Installing gutter guards stops the embers from coming into contact with dry leaves and debris that may be in your gutters.
Saves Time and Money
Gutters are constantly accumulating debris and that means they need to be attended to regularly. Using gutter guards saves time by protecting your gutters from debris and saves you money by not needing professionals to come to clean your gutters. Investing in gutter guards may even reduce the need for storm damage roof repairs.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the differences between eavestroughs and gutters?
Eavestroughs and gutters are more or less the same thing, the main difference is that eavestroughs are a specific type of gutter located under the eaves of a building whereas the term gutters can refer to many types of systems that redirect rainwater.
How often should you clean out your gutters?
We recommend getting your gutters cleaned at least twice a year, depending on the type of plants that grow near your home.
How do you know if your gutters need to be cleaned?
Some telltale signs that your gutters need a good cleaning include:
- Rainwater is overflowing
- Sagging gutter
- It’s been more than 6 months
- Roof leaks
- Pests and animals are present
How long do eavestroughs last?
The longevity of an eavestrough system depends on the material that they are made from. Many are made from aluminum which can last for close to 20 years. Eavestroughs that are built from other materials like plastic or vinyl have a shorter lifespan and will need to be replaced more frequently.
When should you replace your eavestroughs or gutters?
The key signs that your eavestroughs need repairs include:
- Appearance or smell of mold
- Paint has begun to fade
- Corrosion is forming and creating holes
- Water is leaking from the middle of the gutter
- The fasteners have become loose
What is the difference between gutters and downspouts?
The gutter is the system that is connected to your roof while downspouts are the pip-like devices that are connected to the gutters that redirect the water and lead it away from your home. You’ll find downspouts along the sides of a home and direct the water to the designated drainage area.
Which is better, vinyl or aluminum gutters?
Vinyl gutters (or plastic gutters) are lightweight and made from a plastic material. Aluminum gutters are also lightweight but are made with metal which increases their lifespan.
Other benefits of aluminum gutters:
- Can withstand unfavourable weather conditions
- Excellent return on investment
- Easy to repair
- Large colour selection
