Eavestrough, Soffit and Fascia Repair and Installation in Erin
In the area of home repairs, you never want to put until tomorrow what you can do today – apart from the increased damage a postponed home repair will be – the costs are also a concern. Let’s face it, our homes are our single biggest investment and for most the source of their retirement, so it makes sense to keep up with the work as it is discovered. An eavestrough replacement in Erin, a fascia replacement in Erin or a soffit replacement in Erin should be done when you realize there are problems because the problems don’t get smaller, they only grow through homeowner negligence. Too, the need for a proven professional for the repairs is the best recipe for success. While we may not be cooks, we are proven professionals when it comes to roof repairs and we are your premier roofing company here at AM Roofing Solutions.
Keeping the systems working well, the eavestrough, fascia, and soffit
- The roof does a great many things, like keep your home warm and protected from the elements. But the primary work of the roof is to get water moving from the shingles to the eavestrough for ground-level drainage. The channels of the eavestrough need to be kept clear of leaves and other items that can slow the flow of the water to the ground. For a clear gutter, an eavestrough repair in Erin is the best thing to help the eavestrough do its job. When the accumulated debris has caused damage to the channels an eavestrough installation in Erin is the only way to protect the roofing system and your home from water infiltration. Water over the sides of the eavestrough is bad of the house and other elements of the house that water will come in contact with. A rain gutter repair in Erin will help keep water in the channels and flowing freely to the downspouts. Heavy branches or water and debris can increase the strain on the rain gutters and then a rain gutter replacement in Erin will be the next thing to be done to help with the drainage and stop more damage from being done to the other aspects of the roofing system.
- When we talk about water damage to other areas of the roofing system, we are talking about the fascia – first point of contact for water over the sides of the rain gutters. The fascia is a strip of wood lath that covers a space between the decking and the underside of the eavestrough. Water pouring over the gutters creates wood rot and potential conditions for cold to grow and a fascia repair in Erin is one way to stop the hazards from multiplying. But, you need to pull off the fascia to see just how bad it has been damaged by water to get an accurate read on what you need to do and that is when a fascia installation in Erin comes into play. You don’t want to replace a small section of fascia when replacing an entire section will be better for improved roof health – what is the point of making repairs twice when you can get it right the first time? If you haven’t been paying attention to your attic insulation situation, your fascia will pay the price for the lack of attention. In the winter, when we heat our homes the heat rises to the attic and can hang at the top of the roof if we have little or no attic insulation. That creates heat transfer between the decking shingles and any snow on the roof. In the daylight, the snow will melt and head for the gutters to drain, when it gets dark, the water does water does and freezes at the base of the eavestrough and fascia. This turns into a big repair job – eavestrough and fascia – all for the price of a few bags of loose fill insulation and a professional to install it.
- One rule of thumb about your attic that most people aren’t aware of is the temperature should be reasonably close to outside temperatures to maintain good health. The temperature is held relative to the thermometer through the soffit, a panel of holes that are spread across the panel to let air into the attic. The soffit is below the fascia and that is where the aeration for the attic starts. If you aren’t getting a healthy dose of fresh air in the attic a soffit repair in Erin might be the answer to the question that is bedeviling you. You will know if the repair has been successful because the humidity in the attic will be non-existent – if it still ‘wet’ in the attic, a soffit installation in Erin will help level off temperatures. Humidity will kill your attic supports and caused the roof to sag or bow leaving your home with structural damage that may cause a huge repair.
