Eavestrough and Downspouts

Eavestroughs are important because they collect and direct rainwater away from a building, protecting it from water damage and ensuring its structural integrity. Without eavestroughs, excess water runoff can cause foundation settling, basement flooding, damage to the roof and walls, and other problems that can compromise the safety, stability, and comfort of the building. Eavestroughs also help to prevent mold growth and improve indoor air quality by reducing moisture buildup.


K-style colored aluminum eavestrough is a type of rain gutter system that is made from aluminum and has a decorative shape that resembles crown molding. The "K" in K-style refers to the shape of the profile, which has flat sides with a curved bottom that allows for better water flow. This type of eavestrough is a popular choice for homeowners who want a more decorative look for their home's exterior. Colored aluminum eavestrough refers to the variety of colors available for the eavestrough, allowing homeowners to choose an option that matches or complements the color of their home. The colored finish is achieved through a process of powder-coating, which involves applying a layer of colored powder to the aluminum and then baking it at high temperatures to create a durable, long-lasting finish. Overall, K-style colored aluminum eavestroughs are a popular and effective rain gutter system that provides both functionality and aesthetic appeal to a home.


Decorative downspouts are rain gutter components that are designed to add aesthetic appeal to a home's exterior. They are typically made of metal, such as copper or aluminum, and come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles to complement the overall design of the home. Unlike standard downspouts, which are often plain and utilitarian in appearance, decorative downspouts are meant to be a focal point and can serve as an accent to the overall look of the home. Some common types of decorative downspouts include those that are shaped like animals, such as fish, birds, or dragons, and those that feature ornate designs, such as scrollwork or floral motifs. Decorative downspouts can be installed on their own or as part of a complete rain gutter system, and are often used to enhance the curb appeal of a home. While decorative downspouts may not necessarily improve the functionality of the rain gutter system, they can add an extra touch of personalization and character to a home's exterior.

5" & 6" Sizes

The main difference between 5" and 6" eavestrough is the size of the channel or trough that collects and directs rainwater. A 5" eavestrough has a channel width of 5 inches, while a 6" eavestrough has a channel width of 6 inches. The larger channel size of the 6" eavestrough can handle a greater volume of rainwater compared to the 5" eavestrough, which is especially useful in areas with high rainfall or heavy snowfall.

In addition, the size of the downspouts that connect to the eavestroughs will also vary depending on the size of the eavestrough. Generally, 6" eavestroughs will require larger downspouts than 5" eavestroughs to effectively move the greater volume of water.

The choice between 5" and 6" eavestrough will depend on factors such as the size of the roof, the amount of rainfall in the area, and the slope of the roof. It's important to consult with a professional to determine the appropriate size and type of eavestrough system for your specific needs.
