Stay dry, protection for the eavestrough, fascia, and soffit
- Collecting water and distributing is what your eavestrough does – a fairly simple task – but one that can be impacted by outside forces that will impede the process. Wet leaves will halt drainage and force water over the sides of the eavestrough channels and an eavestrough repair in Belwood can make short work of any clog that is backing up water. If there is damage to the eavestrough an eavestrough installation in Belwood is the right solution at the right time for your home. When water sits in the eavestrough channel with wet leaves, the weight of the materials will force a homeowner to get a rain gutter repair in Belwood on general principles – can't drain water through a clogged channel. If the weigh the debris is beyond the eavestrough’s ability to support the channels a rain gutter replacement in Belwood is what should happen next to keep water moving in the channels to the downspouts.
- Keeping the roofing system closed to invasive water will protect all the components that make up the roofing system and the fascia is one of the closed doors of the roofing system. Located below the eavestrough, it is a wood strip that fills a gap between the eavestrough and the base of the roof and helps provide a secure waterproof seal for the base of the roof. As mentioned, water over the channels of the eavestrough will affect other portions of the roofing system and the fascia takes the brunt of the water when it spills. Depending on the spill and where it is, a fascia repair in Belwood can get the rotten strip of fascia away from the roofing system and stop it transporting wood rot to other parts of the roof. You won't know the extent of the damage to the fascia until you peel the strip back – in many cases, the strip may not be infected but it can harbor the bacteria that causes wood rot and a fascia installation in Belwood is an act of preventative maintenance. Have you checked your attic insulation lately? Seems odd to ask when we are talking about the fascia, but there is a direct correlation to poor attic insulation and damage tot eh fascia and eavestrough. If your attic is lacking in quality insulation, heat will rise through the poor insulation and hit the decking and shingles. Once it does, any snow on the roof will melt and the water will make its way to the gutters, all good so far until it gets dark. Once the mercury in the thermometer drops below freezing, ice forms and it is in the worst place for the eavestrough and fascia. The dams will set up shop at the base of the fascia and the eavestrough and push the rain gutters away from the fascia. Bad news, a big repair, good news, new insulation and the repairs you need to protect your roofing system and as a homeowner, you are a little smarter about roofing maintenance.
- Your attic needs fresh air to keep the wooden joists, rafters and trusses protected from wood rot and mold that comes from the hot air that rises from your house to the attic. Humidity will kill the supports and the fresh air that comes from below the eavestrough through the soffit will stop the slow death. The soffit panels have holes in them to get air in – if you have noticed that the attic is a bit balmy, get a soffit repair in Belwood – your attic isn’t the South Pacific. Most times a soffit installation in Belwoood is probably the best decision that can be made under the circumstances, you don’t want to tempt fate on this one because the costs will explode if you need to address the supports of the roof along with anything else that has gone wrong because your just in time maintenance is the best plan in the world.
