Rain troughs are the channels that can be seen along the edges of roofs to which they are fixed. They are positioned along the edge of the roof to provide direction to rainwater. It is very important to install a trough system to avoid water damage.

Many times trough system is blocked by different types of debris such as leaves and dirt, and this can very rapidly build up and cause more serious problems. If a trough system gets clogged up, the rainwater which has drained off from the roof, will not flow into the drainage system.
This can cause the water to run down the walls and windows of the building, and onto any paths that may be close by. A seriously neglected rain trough can overtime become blocked with debris and this can allow weeds to grow.
Trough cleaning is an essential home maintenance task and should be routinely carried out. Trapped debris and water can burden the guttering with excess weight, and will put a much greater load on the guttering system than it was designed for.
If a building has a basement, then the overflowing water from the blocked trough can run down the walls and cause dampness, which can be very expensive to resolve.
Maintenance of guttering is often overlooked, and it is only when a problem arises that any action is taken to resolve it. Visual checks on a regular basis can help avoid most of the problems blocked troughs can cause.
