The smart way to protect your rain gutters
Eavestroughs are only as strong as their weakest point. For this reason, make sure to choose a fastening system that prevents warping and leaks, which would cause you to have to replace your eavestroughs. Les Gouttières X-Perts recommends the T-Rex continuous hanger system in the Laurentians and Eastern Ontario. Contact us for more information!
Traditional InstallationsTraditional eavestroughs have a weakness. That weakness is the distance between the nails and hangers. This distance can create:
Rain Gutters With Spikes
Rain gutters with spikes tend to become loose. Over time, the fascia wood dries and contracts, and the spikes begin to protrude. This weakens your eavestroughs, creates warping, water leaks, and loose rain gutters. The damage can require expensive repairs to fix.
Rain Gutters With Hooks
Rain gutters with hook fasteners are much more aesthetically pleasing because the hooks are not visible from the ground. They are also more effective, since unlike nails, screws don’t loosen from the fascia. Accordingly, the eavestrough will remain strong and waterproof for its entire lifespan. However, these rain gutters have the same weakness as nail-based eavestroughs, and that is the distance between the hooks. This can result in warping and distortion due to weather conditions.
New Installation Standards
Thanks to its innovative installation process, the T-Rex M5200 rain gutter fastening system provides unmatched strength that supports the eavestrough across its entire length. The T-Rex system is attached with galvanized self-sealing screws to prevent water leaks. It is entirely made of aluminium and comes with a lifetime warranty.
The result? Your eavestroughs will be:
Advantages of the T-Rex Continuous Hanger System
The hangers span the entire length of the eavestroughs as opposed to hooks installed every 16 or 18 inches. They are screwed in at the back, every 18 inches.
Because they are installed inside the eavestrough, the hangers are invisible from the ground.
The continuous hanger is rustproof and solidly ties the eavestrough to the property.
The T-Rex system comes with a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty.
It helps prevent ice and snow leaks that cause warping.
The eavestroughs always remain functional because snow, ice, and debris can’t enter them. No more leaks or warping!
Each system comes with a 40 year, eavestrough protection warranty.
The system distributes the resistance across the entire length of the eavestrough: with no weak points, your rain gutters will be 50% more solid.
Thanks to waterproof joints, the system prevents leaks that would otherwise damage the fascia board.
The rain gutter protector blocks 50% of UV rays, thus preserving the joint sealants.
The continuous hanger system can support up to 250 lbs per linear foot.

Aluminium hangers are installed every 16 or 18 inches.
These hangers are screwed behind the fascia board and are hooked in front of the rain gutters.
