What are Eavestroughs
& What Do They Do?
The primary function of an eavestrough, also known as a rain gutter, is to divert water away from the edge of the roof, and down onto the ground.
The purpose of this is to minimize water build-up on your roof, which can cause decay and infiltration, leading to major water damage and costly repairs. In addition to protection from water infiltration, they also add to your home’s visual appeal, and come in a wide variety of materials to suit any home’s style, such as:
- Cast Iron
Water collected by the eavestrough is then guided from the roof’s edge to the ground by a downspout.
Don’t let water damage caused by old or broken eavestroughs compromise the internal structure of your home. If you notice damage or looseness around your gutters, or they’ve simply run their course and you’d like to swap them for top-quality replacements, contact the pros at T. Simpson Roofing. We’ll provide you with an honest quote and deliver a thorough job.

Exterior Home Siding
Some elements to keep in mind while shopping around are:
Aesthetics: Your siding will be your home’s most prominent visual feature. So make sure you choose a material and colour that you will be proud to drive or walk up to every day. Choosing good-looking siding will also serve to increase the value of your home should you ever decide to sell.
Durability: Canadian temperatures are some of the harshest—summers can get unbearably hot, while winters usually get tremendously cold. You need to make sure you choose a material with the ability and strength to adapt to both temperature extremes, as well as to stand up to the daily wear and tear brought on by all 4 Canadian seasons.
Water Resistance: Your siding plays a crucial role in protecting your home’s skeletal structure. For this reason, you need to choose a material that is exceptionally water-resistant, which you must maintain on a regular basis.
Energy Efficiency: The responsibility of keeping your home warm during winter and cool during summer doesn’t rest solely on your thermostat. Your home’s siding will have a huge impact on this, as well as on your monthly energy bills. Choose the right energy-efficient siding material and insulation, and you’ll find yourself saving lots of hard-earned money.
There are almost as many siding options as there are homes. Thankfully, the staff at T. Simpson Roofing has the industry knowledge required to help you decide on the best possible siding, personalized to your home’s unique needs. Siding materials include the following:
- Fiber Cement
While each of these materials offer a wide range of benefits, vinyl siding has really begun to stand out from the rest, and has gained tremendous popularity. As one of the most versatile and cost-effective sidings on today’s market, it comes in a variety of styles, from log cabin to cedar shingle, as well as colours.
Additionally, vinyl siding is long-lasting and resistant to denting and colour fading; it also boosts your exterior walls’ insulation, enhancing your home’s energy efficiency. You can easily see why it is quickly becoming homeowners’ top choice.
If vinyl siding just isn’t for you, our siding contractors also recommend fiber cement siding. Cement siding provides the classic appearance of wood siding without being susceptible to termites or rotting, and also comes in a variety of colours, so our contractors can work with you to determine the best look for your home without compromising its integrity.
