Don’t let your problems grow, solutions for the eavestrough, fascia, and soffit
- Maintaining your roof’s drainage system starts with the eavestrough – it receives water from the shingles and gets it to the downspouts for eviction on the ground and when it isn’t that’s the problem. An open channel is what makes the eavestrough a great drainage system – but is also a weakness that can lead to an eavestrough repair in Dorset. Gunk builds up in the eavestrough and causes slower than necessary drainage for the roof and the backed up water needs somewhere to go and usually it is over the sides of the eavestrough. If the junk has pierced the channel – it won't be able to transport water to the downspouts and it creates a need for an eavestrough installation in Dorset because you neglected the situation when the time was ripe for the work. Water over the rain gutters is a recipe disaster and a rain gutter repair in Dorset will let the water travel freely in the gutter to the ground and not down the side of the house. If the rain gutter has been damaged by the weight of the junk in the channel or perforated by a tree branch a rain gutter replacement in Dorset will take the sting out of the problem for a homeowner.
- At the base of the eavestrough is where you will find the fascia – it was designed to close a gap between the eavestrough and the decking to keep water and other materials out of the roofing system. Water over the rain gutters is directed right to the fascia – it is the first point of contact for errant drainage and that is when a fascia repair in Dorset becomes more than a passing thought. As water pounds the fascia damage can be done quickly and quietly – once the fascia has become overwrought by the draining water the damage can be extensive and certainly mold and wood rot will be part of the infected piece of fascia. A fascia installation in Dorset is the answer to the question and the contractor will encourage that decision to prevent a repeat of the repair at a later date. Keeping the attic insulated is an important job for a homeowner – reduced costs in heating is one reason – but a bigger reason to keep your attic insulated involves the fascia. In the winter, warm shingles will cause snow to melt – if you have snow on the roof – and when it does it moves for the rain gutters to transport the water on the ground. The reason the snow is melting is the hot air from your house has made contact with the decking – once the snow melts it will re-freeze when the air temperature cools and the ice dams will form at the eavestrough and fascia. A couple of freezes and the rain gutters will be hanging off the house and a bigger repair will be slated for your home in the spring.
- You must keep the attic aerated – fresh air sent in to keep humid air from infecting the trusses is the job of the soffit and it is extremely important to do so. The soffit is below the fascia and draws air into the attic through holes in the panel – if you have noticed that attic is a touch warmer and damper than usual it is because the holes may need to be cleared to get fresh air into the attic. A soffit repair in Dorset is the way to get the airflow moving in the right direction and protect the supports for the roof. If the temperature doesn’t recede after a repair a soffit installation in Dorset is the best way to keep the humidity to a minimum – and prevent damage to the wood in the attic.
