Eavestrough, Soffit and Fascia Repair and Installation in Aurora
You bought a home, that can be charitably termed a fixer-upper, and from the home inspection report, you knew that repairs would need to be made as an ongoing concern to improve the quality of life you will enjoy over time. Part of the list was an eavestrough replacement in Aurora, a fascia replacement in Aurora and a soffit replacement in Aurora. Now that you are ready to get on with the repairs, the first thing you should do is pick up the phone and call a professional roofing company for the work your home needs. That is the best time to call us at AM Roofing Solutions to meet the challenges and needs that your home have on the roof.
When, why and how, the eavestrough, fascia, and soffit
- The eavestrough, if it was a Zodiac sign would be an Aquarian, the water bringer. The eavestrough brings water to the ground with the help of the downspouts and when water is slowed in the eavestrough channels an eavestrough repair in Aurora is one way to get things done that will with drainage. Junk can get in the channels and that is bad for water movement, but more precisely it can be a source of future damage that will make an eavestrough replacement in Aurora inevitable if you don’t act right away. As water moves over the rain gutters due to plugs in the channel line, a rain gutter repair in Aurora will relieve the gutters of the impediments and get water moving in the right direction. As twigs and leaves build up in the gutter, the weight can pull the rain gutter from the fascia and a rain gutter replacement in Aurora will need to be completed to protect the integrity to the water drainage system.
- Water will damage anything it touches, and when it flowing freely over the rain gutters it makes contact with the fascia that sits just underneath the eavestrough. Once water has been pelting the fascia for a period of time, a fascia repair in Aurora will help protect the wood strip and keep offensive mold and wood rot out of the house. Until the fascia is removed, you don’t know the extent of the total damage that the water has caused – if you have a hint of mold or rot in the channel – a fascia replacement in Aurora will eliminate further mold and rot damage to the system. The fascia takes responsibility for problems not if it’s making and that is true when you look at the lack of attic insulation in the attic and what the fallout of that situation is. In winter, warm will rise to the attic and when it does poor insulation won’t keep the heat in the house and allow it to move to the shingles. If snow is on the roof, it will melt and the water will descend to the gutters for drainage. The trouble in this situation is that the water will freeze later in the day and create ice dams at one of the weakest points in your roofing system – at the eavestrough and fascia – and the pressure from the ice will force the eavestrough to come loose from the fascia.
- When hit air gets into the attic it changes to water vapour, and that is a bad thing for the attic – the soffit was invented to tamp down the problem of moist air in the attic. The soffit panel has holes in it and it is installed around the entire roof – underneath the eavestrough – and the holes release air into the attic. If you aren’t getting the right amount of fresh air in the attic, a soffit repair in Aurora will be a way to equalize the air to water ratio. Let’s face it, humid air in the attic will hurt the joists and rafters because the wet vapour will cause them to warp and or sag and it can be seen at a distance. In the unlikely event that this has taken place a soffit replacement in Aurora will be one of many options available when contemplating a repair for the roof.
