What to Expect During Your Eavestrough Installation
Working with us is easy! With over 30 years in business, we know a thing or two about keeping the quoting and installation process simple.
Here’s what to expect when working with the roofing contractors at Big 5 Exteriors:
Initial Contact & Project Assessment
This begins as soon as you give us a call or send us a quote through our website. We will connect with you to learn more about your project, including any special details or requirements that you may have. We will also confirm which size and colour of eavestrough you require.
We will then schedule a time for us to come to your home or business to do an in-person quote.
On-Site Measurement & Quote
During our initial conversation we will arrange a day and time for us to arrive. You do not need to be home or on-site for us to measure and quote your eavestroughing project. Of course, we like it when you are on-site as we enjoy meeting our clients and getting to know them.
We will get up on your roof and perform detailed measurements of all areas requiring new eavestroughing. This measurement insures that we are providing an exact quote for the complete scope of services that you require.
Once the measurement is completed and the quote is prepared, we will then provide you the quote via e-mail. We will only charge what is listed on the quote; we don’t believe in surprise bills, and so we don’t run our business that way.
Removal of Old Eavestrough, Installations of New Eavestrough
Once the quote is accepted, we will arrange a day for us to come complete your new eavestrough installation.
We start by assessing the area for any items that could be hazards or damaged. We take note of sheds, power lines, and any other exterior fixture that may influence how we complete the job.
Old Eavestrough Removal
After we assess your home and property, we begin removing your old eavestrough. We are mindful not to damage your home or property.
Once all the eavestrough has been removed, we will cut it into smaller sections and pile it in one place. We will dispose of the eavestrough for you; if possible, we will recycle the old eavestrough (assuming it is made of a recyclable material).
Final Measurement and New Eavestrough Installation
Once the old eavestrough is removed, we again measure the areas that we will be installing eavestrough on. This ensures that the pieces of eavestrough we create will be of sufficient length to perform their job unfailingly.
Once all measurements are complete, we then use our truck-mounted eavestrough press to create the continuous pieces of eavestrough. We carefully inspect each piece as it rolls off the assembly line to ensure it is free of defects.
With the new pieces of continuous eavestrough freshly made, we integrate a durable mounting system and install the install the eavestrough on your home/building.
With your new eavestroughing now installed, we will measure and install your downspouts. Included with each quote are flip-up style downspouts, which can be neatly tucked out of the way when not in use.
We’re just about done! Now that you’re new eavestroughing and downspouts are installed, we will perform a slope/leak test. This test checks to ensure that the eavestrough is sloped properly, so that water runs to the downspouts to be drained.
If we see any areas where water pools, we will raise or lower that section to ensure proper water flow.
We also check end-caps and corners to ensure that they are properly sealed and do not leak.
