There are several materials to choose from, the most common being vinyl or aluminum available in stock colors with matching downspouts. Many homeowners choose to allow the water to simply flow off the edge of their roof onto the ground not realizing that it places undue stress directly against the foundation wall and is more prone to eventually finding a way into your basement area through ground seepage. A properly installed eavestrough or gutter will help keep that ground water at bay.
Eavestroughing and Gutters are now readily available from most Eavestrough Contractors and Building Suppliers in both Aluminum and Vinyl. Vinyl eavestroughing although relatively durable has a few limitations. It is not available in long lengths and requires a seamed connector to join the next piece together and on a longer roof line, can result in many seams that all have the potential to eventually leak as a result of the normal freezing and thawing cycles.
It also becomes brittle from the sun`s UV rays over time and will eventually crack or break especially if it is plugged with leaves during a wet period and is allowed to freeze. Vinyl Eavestrough is also limited to a few stock colors and does not accept paint as well as aluminum. A vinyl eaves trough system is generally more appealing to the do it yourself application and is usually a little cheaper than an extruded K-Type Aluminum Eavestrough System.
Aluminum Eavestroughing and Gutters is by far the better solution when looking at both alternatives and offers greater durability through the freeze and thaw cycle and does not typically crack or break. Aluminum downspouts and matching Eaves trough are available in a wider choice of colors, some stock, and other available by special order, very important when trying to match with your windows and doors.
One of the greatest features of aluminum Eaves trough installations is that it is available in virtually any length desired and is usually extruded from a machine in your choice of color and is seamless eavestoughing from start to finish. This provides greater reliability and eliminates the worry about leaks at every seam. If a desired eaves-trough & downspout color is not available in stock or on special order, it can be painted easily and then installed once the desired paint has cured. Should you change the exterior color scheme of your home or business, aluminum eavestroughing and downspout installations offer the flexibility to be painted in the future should a change in color be required.

Eavestrough installations are far more important than most homeowners realize and are at the very source where water first comes off a roof structure. It is at this point, that taking control of the water course is most important as it can be directed horizontally to a downspout that further directs the water downward to either a storm sewer or foundation footing tile. This natural water flow when directed properly relieves water buildup against the cement block foundation wall or poured concrete foundation and decreases the chances of water seeping through wall cracks and small holes in the wall. In some ways, the installation of proper eavestroughing and gutters is the cheapest insurance you can invest in for long term peace of mind when protecting the lower levels of your home or business from water infiltration.
