Winter-Shield: Saving Canadian Gutters!

logo_winter_shield_coul_ANG

Cover, shelter, protect, wrap up… those are all verbs that define only too well our harsh winters. We spend an inordinate amount of time bracing up for snow accumulations and intense cold: car tempo shelters, Styrofoam casings for shrubs, protective tarps for the lawn. Year in, year out, the same ritual takes place.

Out of sight, out of mind

Several hours of work later, with way less money in your wallet, you bask in your own success as you sip on a cup of hot chicken broth. Ready to battle it out against winter precipitation, we often forget what is most exposed to damage: gutters. How is it that we are so careful to inflate a ball and insert it under a tarp to close the swimming pool for the winter and yet we don’t even protect what is going to be the most exposed to freeze-thaw activity during that same period?

Come to think of it, it is completely illogical that our gutters are left unprotected under tons of ice throughout winter. Although they are high, out of sight and easily forgotten, they still keep the basement dry.

Permanent winter protection with Alu-Rex products and the Winter-ShieldMC technology

This is indeed why Alu-Rex has developed the Gutter Clean System® and the T-Rex®. The membrane of the eavestrough and the continuous hanger are made of a special aluminum that won’t rust. The membrane reinforces the structure of the slabs against the onslaught of nature and was designed to allow water to flow freely as ice and snow melt.

Consequently, melting ice and snow won’t cause water infiltration in the basement or your roof to rot. All these benefits summarize the Winter-ShieldMC technology. The good news is that you won’t have to include rain gutters to your winter ritual. Send an email to a nearby Alu-Rex product installer to solve this problem once and for all!
