Ask John #16: Overflowing Eavestrough

Post Topics: Ask John


The trough on my house is overflowing.  How can I fix this and prevent it in the future?


This may be because the trough is full of debris and needs to be cleaned out.  Cleaning out your trough or having it cleaned out is reccomended twice a year.  If your house is older it may have 4" gutter on it, which used to be standard but the standard is now 5" to allow more water flow.  There may also be damage or the fastening system has come loose.  If this is the case or the trough is only 4" it will need to be replaced.
