Eavestrough, Soffit and Fascia Repair and Installation in Milton
You bought your kid the newest, hottest toy on the market, a drone, and the first thing he does with it gets it stuck on the roof. Well, the sky is falling and it is Armageddon because the drone is perched precariously close to the roof’s edge and if it falls it could be rendered useless. So, like any good parent you get the ladder out to rescue the incapacitated drone and check it for damage before you give it back to your son. While on the roof, you notice that there are some problems you can't identify, but you inherently know that an eavestrough replacement in Milton or a fascia replacement in Milton or a soffit replacement in Milton is quite possible because you just don’t what is causing what you are seeing but you know the roof isn’t performing as it should. A call to us at AM Roofing Solutions will help get the repair ball rolling and the results should stem the tide of damage that is taking place on the roof.
Keeping the standards up on the roof and what hurts your roof
- One of the things you saw on the roof when retrieving the drone was excess buildup in the eavestrough and it appeared that the clog was slowing water movement in the eavestrough. An eavestrough repair in Milton can help relieve the blockage and help water move to the downspouts and away from the house. One thing is certain though until you get the gunk out of the eavestrough you won't know if the twigs or the weight of the wet materials in the channels has damaged it and if the channels have been damaged an eavestrough installation in Milton will need to be given serious consideration. Remember, if you don’t have a rain gutter repair in Milton you could be assisting in the damage that water and debris are doing in the channels. If this was a crime, you be considered aiding and abetting damage and rain gutter replacement in Milton will need to be made to protect the innocent.
- As one of the innocent victims of the crime that is water damage, the fascia, is at the top of the list. When water moves over the channels of the rain gutters, the first stop is the fascia and then down the side of the house. A fascia repair in Milton will need to be taken to replace the wood strip that has been exposed to water and it now has wood rot. If the wood is contained in a small portion of the wood strip that is the fascia it is all well and good, but seldom do we get that kind of break. In the main, wood rot and mold move like a wildfire within a dry wood structure and when it does a fascia installation in Milton will be required to stop any health risks from the mold from affecting your family. If you haven’t had your attic insulation inspected for R-value it could mean a dire situation for your roofing system. Certainly, insulation helps prevent excess energy use, but it also stops heat from reaching the shingles in the winter. Water that has melted on the roof will need to be evicted from the roofing system and if it refreezes, it will create ice dams at the eavestrough and edge of the roof. The dams will break the seal of the eavestrough with the fascia and the damage is done. In the spring, water will drain through the gap and it is straight down on the fascia and to the ground.
- Getting fresh air into the attic is what you need your soffit for and the reasons for it is related to temperature regulation and water vapour saturation. This goal is achieved through the design of the soffit – it is a panel with holes drilled in at intervals and through the holes are where the fresh air comes from. The fresh air counteracts the warm, moist air that comes from the house and rises to the attic creating humid conditions. The fresh air that is supplied by the soffit needs clear holes to get the air to the attic, if they are blocked or have dirt taking up residence a soffit repair in Milton will help with circulation. If the attic is warm or damp or both, a soffit installation in Milton will be where the rubber should meet the road. When the trusses and joists become damp from the warm air vapour they twist or bow and it will cause the roof to sag – not a good thing when thinking about support for the shingles and the decking.
