A roofing system is made up of disparate components that upon first glance has no real relationship to each other, but an up-close view shows why they are important and how they work together.

How the eavestrough, fascia, and soffit work together
- The eavestrough is the secondary driver of water away from the roof – the shingles catch falling water or runoff from melting snow and usher it to the eavestrough – and one of the biggest problems and eavestrough faces if buildup in the channels. When the channel becomes blocked a small eavestrough repair in Huntsville will be required to keep the water moving to the downspouts and away from the foundation. Another small problem that and eavestrough faces is cracks and small holes that may become prevalent due to blockage. When that happens a small eavestrough repair in Huntsville will help alleviate the problem to keep the flow moving. If the problem is too large for a repair, an eavestrough installation in Huntsville is the next line of defense to keep the water from spilling over the sides of the eavestrough and down the side of the house. Keeping our rain gutters free of impediments is the best plan to make for successful water drainage. When we notice anything in the channels that can prevent drainage, get ahead of the curve and have a rain gutter repair in Huntsville. If you are too late to the party and have damage in the gutters, a rain gutter replacement in Huntsville will put you over the finish line in your race against water damage.
- If you have plugged channels in the eavestrough system, you can be assured that water will run over the sides and cascade across the fascia. The fascia is just below the rain gutters and it is a wood lath strip that encloses the roofing system at the decking and eavestrough. The fascia can stand intermittent water – like from a rainstorm – but it wasn’t designed to withstand a constant deluge of water like the kind that overflows the eavestrough. A fascia repair in Huntsville is a way to correct the problem – as long as you deal with the cause of the problem first. As long as the work is done that is all that matters, but you need to be cognizant of the fact that wood rot and mold can spread and force a fascia replacement in Huntsville as a means to an end to protect your roofing system. There is another problem that the fascia is forced to deal with and it has a great deal to do with a lack of attic insulation in the upper part of your home. A lack of insulation will allow warm air to fill the attic and when it does, any snow on the roof will melt due to heat exchange. Water will begin its migration to the eavestrough, but cold temperatures will force the snow to melt and ice dams are the inevitable conclusion to this situation. At the eavestrough, the ice dams will force an opening between the eavestrough and the fascia – then it is a work party as there are many problems to correct, first off, new insulation.
- Keeping air circulation into the attic is critical for the health of the roofing system. Warm air in the attic that is heavy with water vapour will be attracted to any surfaces that will absorb the water vapour, and it is the beams and rafters that will provide residency for the water vapour. The soffit keeps air circulation to the attic a constant when air doesn’t make its way to the attic a soffit repair in Huntsville will make a difference in the fresh air quotient. Over time, you will need to monitor this situation – a soffit installation Huntsville may be the next act in the repair replacement play because the moistness of the attic air hasn’t been counteracted.
