加拿大房屋排水系统维护要点

加拿大房屋的排水系统主要有排水槽(Rain Gutter或Eavestrough)和排水管。排水槽收集屋顶的雨水雪水,顺着水管,排到地面上。冬季来临前,要好好检查排水系统没有任何淤塞,雨水雪水可以顺畅的流往地下,否则,当融雪时,即使屋顶不漏水,积水也会四处溅落,可能直接排到房屋的基础墙基上或倒流入屋,造成漏水现象。更严重的,当雪暴时,屋顶冰雪的重压和反覆凝结融化﹐会把屋顶弄垮。

落叶是排水槽堵住的罪魁祸首。飘落在屋顶上的落叶被雨水冲进累积在雨水槽里,有时还有泥土,再飘进几颗草籽,还会在雨水槽里长出草来。



冬天天气变冷,好多小动物,如小松鼠,破坏屋檐、雨水槽等,导致排水槽和排水管衔接出问题,出现屋檐老滴水的现象。

另外还有一个非常重要的原因,有的房子的屋顶没有做好,短了一节,没有延伸一小段出去到覆盖住部分雨水槽。这一小段就是通常说的排水屋檐(Roof Drip Edge)。如果没有这段延伸出去的排水屋檐,雨水从屋顶上流下,就有部分雨水流不进去雨水槽,而是从雨水槽和房子之间流下,导致雨天屋檐滴水,冬季屋檐下冻结出厚厚长长的冰凌。

每年的11月份和4月份是检查排水系统的最佳时期。因为11月份树叶多落光了,雪又还没有下。4月份天气已转暖,积雪已融化,容易检查雨水槽是否漏水,同时还没有到雨季。



雨水槽后面有一片的木头(Fascia Board),如果长期被水侵蚀就容易腐烂;如果腐烂了就很麻烦,要将整个雨水槽卸下才能更换这片木头,工程量非常大。如果木头腐烂了没有及时更换,那雨水就要漏到房子里面,那就更加麻烦,成本加倍增加,得不偿失了。

如果水管外层有脱落的情况,即表示需要修补,要立即更换。清理排水管的垃圾及树叶并不困难,戴上手套,系上安全绳索,架梯上屋顶,使用工具把排水槽的淤泥腐物清除出来就行了。 当然,最好的方法就是请合格的专业人员来动手为你清理四周的排水管。

在排水槽上加一层Cover可以很好的预防排水槽堵塞。是加cover还是每年定期清理,需要屋主权衡可能的花销。
