Why should I equip my eavestroughs with a more secure fastening system?

The main reason why you should install a sturdier fastening system is to protect your eavestroughs against ice and snow. Indeed, their weight exerts considerable pressure on rain gutters. Moreover, ice that falls from the roof may cause serious damage to your rain gutters.

Ice build-ups in rain gutters

Ice build-ups in rain gutters expand and contract with freeze/thaw activity, which causes eavestroughs to twist and spikes or hangers to become loose.

With the T-Rex system, ice and snow cannot get inside the eavestrough. When snow melts, water can flow easily as the rain gutter is free from any obstruction year-round. The T-Rex’s pioneering design allows fastening the eavestrough firmly in place lengthwise and protects it against winter damage.
