So lets make first things first:
EAVESTROUGH – (also known as eaves trough, eaves, rain gutter or simply as a gutter)
is a narrow channel, or trough, forming the component of a roof system which collects and diverts rainwater shed by the roof.
The main purpose of a rain gutter is to protect a building’s foundation by channeling water away from its base. They also help to reduce erosion, prevent leaks in basements and crawlspaces, protect painted surfaces by reducing exposure to water, and provide a means to collect rainwater for later use.

Clogged gutters can cause water leakage into the house as the water backs up. Clogged gutters can also lead to stagnant water build up which allows mosquitoes to breed and also allow grasses and weeds to grow in the gutter. Eavestrough and downspouts need to be checked and cleaned twice annually and more often during the rainy season if there are tall trees near the house. Use a small garden shovel to clean gutters and insert a hose into gutter drains to flush the downspouts.
SOFFIT–is the horizontal underside of a roof overhang, an archway, a staircase, a ceiling, or a similar architectural component.
From the Italian “soffitta” for under and “figgere,” to fix, the word “soffit” dates back to the days of early Palladian architecture.
Typical soffits on today’s houses include the flat area under the eaves where vents provide attic ventilation, the lower perimeter of a drop ceiling, and the ceiling mounted to the underside of a staircase.
FASCIA is a type of roof trim which is commonly used on houses. It is mounted on the exposed ends of rafters or the top of exterior walls to create a layer between the edge of the roof and the outside. In addition to serving an aesthetic function by creating a smooth, even appearance on the edge of the roof, fascia board also protects the roof and the interior of the house from weather damage. Not all styles of home design feature fascia board, but many do.

Reducing runoff is not the only benefit from a rain barrel. Collecting water with a rain barrel provides a free source of “soft water” to homeowners. A very green choice that helps both homeowner and environment. Rain water contains no chlorine, lime, or calcium that is common in municipal water supplies. Its perfect source of water for all your garden needs. Over a growing season, a rain barrel can help to significantly reduce your water bill.
