Moving water and stopping water damage, protecting your roof 101
- Getting excess water or any water for that matter off your roof is the sole job of the eavestrough and its work hasn’t changed since the invention of the eavestrough. Its greatest asset is also its greatest weakness, open channels help catch water to move it off the roof with the help of the downspouts, but the open gutters mean clogs and blockage can be a risk to the eavestrough. Once you have a blockage and it is inhibiting the movement of water an eavestrough repair in Orangeville will help with drainage problems. If the problem has been left too long or you were slow to recognize the signs of trouble an eavestrough installation in Orangeville should get your roofing system clear of the problems. Buildup force water to fall through the gutter channels, leaks like this can have an impact on the house and ground surrounding the leak and over time it only creates bigger problems. Your rain gutters keep your home dry and free of wood rot and mold, so a rain gutter repair in Orangeville is essential to good roofing health. When water has been overflowing the channels for a few months a rain gutter replacement in Orangeville will need to be accepted as the only viable conclusion to the problem.
- Water overflowing the gutters will hit the fascia first – it is a trip of wood located under the eavestrough and its covers a slot that is created where the roof and eavestrough meet. Newer fascia is covered with aluminum to help extend the life of the fascia, as it will rot to be a carrier for mold to infect your roofing system. Caught early, a fascia repair in Orangeville may mitigate fascia damage, but you won't know that until you can have a professional examine the entire fascia track for damage. Even the slightest hint that there could be mold or wood rot in the track will make a fascia installation in Orangeville an absolute necessity for a homeowner. Attic insulation can have a quite an effect on the fascia – if you don’t have enough insulation, you will have warm temperatures in your attic and that is a bad thing for your roofing system. In the winter, warm air from the home you are heating will make its way to the top of the house – basic physics, hot air rises – once there it will warm up the shingles and if there is snow it will melt. When the temperature drops, the water that was moving to the gutters will freeze and when it does, ice dams form and the damage is done. The ice dams can force sections of the rain gutters away from the fascia and in some instances, entire sections of the eavestrough have been dislodged and fall to the ground.
- The last element that helps control the attic temperature is the soffit, and its function can't be discounted – it is the difference between serious roofing damage and none. The soffit carries fresh air into the attic through holes in the panels that are installed below the fascia. The fresh air helps keep the attic cool and dry – that is a must because the warm, moist air that reaches your attic from home is what will be the roofing system’s undoing. The humidity created with a counterbalance of fresh air is the vapour that will wreck your joists and rafters. Homes with bowed or sagging roofs have had too much humid air circulating in the attic and it has caused stress on the joists and they have heaves slightly. Depending on the nature of the problem with the soffit, you may get by with a soffit repair in Kitchener, if the wood feels wet in the attic a soffit installation in Kitchener is the way to go to dry out the joists preventing the problem from worsening.
