Episode 003 Eaves troughs and drainage to avoid roof cover wear

Eaves troughs and downspouts. Typical issue with installation and how builders tend to install such that your roof cover warranty is void — draining water collected from an upper roof onto a lower roof instead of directly into the lower eaves trough. Of course you can replace a piece of the roof cover, but realistically, you don’t want to end up with a situation where part of your roof cover is 11 years old and part is at year zero. If building a home, tell your builder to extend the downspouts all the way to the lower roof’s eaves trough. If you’re buying a pre-owned home, plan to correct this issue before too much time passes!
