Most homes and buildings in Thailand have rain troughs. Troughs are typically made of metal and help to control the flow of rainwater. They form a channel along the edge of the roof or fascia that leads water to a downspout and takes water several feet away from the base of the home or building.
Rain troughs can be made from a variety of different materials including galvanized steel, aluminum, vinyl, wood, and copper, etc you can choose any material or design as per your requirement. Visit Bprungruang to hire the best rain trough installation services in Thailand.

Rain troughs are very important for a home. Their primary purpose is to prevent large concentrations of water from getting into the foundation, which can cause significant damage and flood in the basement. They also protect painted surfaces from flowing water, provide a direction to rainwater, and reduce erosion, which can otherwise damage buildings.
Rain troughs are available in different shapes and sizes. They are typically five to six inches deep. Most troughs are externally visible, along the edge of the fascia. However, there are other types such as a box gutter, which are hidden within the structure of the roof. They can also be protected by gutter covers, screens, or filters, which are added above them to keep debris out.
It is very necessary to keep rain trough clean of twigs, leaves, and other debris to avoid the buildup and overflow of rainwater. A blocked trough system can cause water to pool around and cause structural damage. So always remember to clean your trough system regularly for its better working.
