Repairs, when and why – the eavestrough, fascia, and soffit
- Moving water is one of the jobs of the shingles, and working in partnership in this task is the eavestrough. To keep water drainage at peak efficiency, the eavestrough should clear of anything that could stop water from moving. If it is raining hard, and you see water flowing over the sides of the eavestrough, an eavestrough repair in Penetanguishene will help spur the flow to the point where it needs to be. If the repair doesn’t meet the needs of the drainage system, and eavestrough installation in Penetanguishene is the next step to help the water move to the desired destination. Often times material buildup can consist of a few leaves that are forcing a bottleneck in spots in the eavestrough, a rain gutter repair in Penetanguishene can relieve the stress that the gutters are under and prevent damage from taking place. If you’re late to the party and damage has taken place a rain gutter replacement in Penetanguishene will aid the roofing system in its quest to move water.
- When we talk about water damage from overflows at the gutters, we would like to highlight the problems the fascia deals with when it comes in contact with water. The fascia is made of wood, or in some cases an aluminum-clad, wood strip – but it takes a hit when water flows over the sides of the gutters. If you have a semblance of the problem when first noticed, instinctively you should hire a contractor for a fascia repair in Penetanguishene to stop the encroachment of mold and wood rot in the fascia. Problem with the fascia is by the time you see the problem it is generally too late for a repair and a fascia installation in Penetanguishene is the only course of action you can take to remediate the infection in the fascia. The fascia will be subjected to water and ice damage from the attic – a lack of insulation or substandard insulation is the cause of the problem and it works like this. Warn air makes it way to the attic into the winter, once it hit the decking - because insulation is too thin to prevent heat transfer – any snow on your roof will melt. Water heads for the gutters, good so far, but it freeze and then the ice dams assert pressure against the eavestrough and fascia. The dams will have pushed the eavestrough away from the fascia and gap is formed for water to move unfettered to the ground.
- To prevent a sagging main beam and humidity in your attic you need a fresh air return to keep the attic close to outside temperatures. This goal is achieved through the invention of the soffit that is located under the eavestrough and fascia. When the soffit is functioning fresh air will be present in the attic. When it isn’t, a soffit repair in Penetanguishene is the way to get the air to where it’s needed. The attic can have intense damage done to the roof supports – water vapour can soften the trusses and rafters leaving them weak and in imminent danger of collapse. That is the time for a soffit installation in Penetanguishene – it will keep the supports protected while regulating airflow and humidity that will be the cause of all the problems in the attic.
