Keeping your roofing system healthy, the eavestrough, fascia, and soffit
- It is not a complex process to get water off the roof – it is an interconnected network that does the heavy lifting and it starts at the eavestrough, working with the downspout. Water comes to the eavestrough from the roof (shingles) then transcends the roof via the downspouts for distribution on the ground, A number of things can interrupt the process – like leaves in the channel and when they accumulate it means blocks in the channels. An eavestrough repair in Newmarket can get the clogs out of the channels and accelerate water flow and distribution on the ground during a rainstorm or snowmelt. Eavestrough can hide small holes and cracks in the channels – and once they have been discovered – an eavestrough replacement in Newmarket will be the thing that brings you roofing system back into balance. You can’t have water over the rain gutters because you don’t know where it is going. A rain gutter repair in Newmarket will help direct the water traffic to the right intersections and anyway from your home. Rain gutters can fail in a number of areas – like the elbows and when that is the problem to solve a rain gutter replacement in Newmarket will help protect the channels and the integrity of the water drainage system.
- The first rule of drainage, if water is moving to places that weren’t designed to receive it, the damage will occur. The fascia is the first stop water over the rain gutters makes and it is there that the damage starts. The fascia is a small strip of wood that is inserted in a gap between the decking and eavestrough to close the space and keep water out of the roof’s extremities. Water running directly over the fascia and to the ground will require a fascia repair in Newmarket in very short order as the wood strip isn’t equipped to withstand water pounding on it when it rains. As a wood strip it is susceptible to wood rot and mold if left too long without remediation, then a fascia replacement in Newmarket is the final answer to the question. The fascia is the victim of another problem that doesn’t create but is on the wrong end of. The attic should hold at least R-20 value density for insulation – if it doesn’t heat transfer will occur in the winter – and the big problem here is snow on the roof. The snow will melt if heated and the water will move uninterrupted to the rain gutter, once temperatures cool, ice dams forms in the gutter and fascia and then damage. Pressurized ice will split the gutter from the fascia – water drainage problems, fascia and gutter problems and new attic insulation will be on the repair shopping list – that is, if you want to do things right.
- You need to air out your attic on a regular basis; most attics don’t have windows so the job of fresh air return falls to the soffit. It is located under the eavestrough and fascia and is a panel that holds small holes to help fresh air makes its way into the attic. If the airflow has been impacted by clogged perforations a soffit repair in Newmarket will help with the air return needs of your attic. If humid air is allowed to hang in the attic it can cause problems for the supports – the beams and joists – and that is a problem of epic proportions. A soffit replacement in Newmarket can put you on the right track to fresh air ventilation and it will save your roof from structural repairs due to the infestation of moist air in the supports.
