Eavestrough, fascia, and soffit learn when the time is right for roofing work
- The eavestrough, apart from being the handsome devil of your roofing system, also moves water to the ground with the help of the downspout network. To work as it was designed to – moving water rapidly – it must have no debris in the channels that will block the flow of water. But, the open channel design that is the eavestrough makes it vulnerable to the buildup that can slow or stop the flow of water. If the water is moving slower than normal in the channels an eavestrough repair in Southampton should help with improved water flow – if the debris in the channel has somehow damaged the channels an eavestrough replacement in Southampton is necessary. Water will spill over the gutters if clogs fill the channels – the water will run down the sides of the channels impacting everything it touches. And it doesn’t take long for water to become the scourge of the roofing system and then a rain gutter repair in Southampton won’t save the gutters and a rain gutter replacement in Southampton will be all that is left to do.
- If the fascia on your house were a human being, it would call the cops and have the roof charged with assault when the water is running over the sides of the rain gutters. Made of wood, the fascia sits just under the eavestrough and is the first point of contact for water over the sides of the gutters. Wood rot will take hold without warning and a fascia repair in Southampton may relieve you of the problem. But, chances are the rot will have impacted the fascia to the point that a fascia installation in Southampton is the last resort for a homeowner. Another assault on the fascia comes courtesy of the attic insulation or lack of attic insulation. Insulation helps the attic stay cool and when it heats up the insulation or lack of it is the cause – heat rises and insulation keeps it from hitting the roof via the shingles. In the winter, this problem looms large – snowmelt from a hot attic air will get water moving until temperature drop and the water freezes again. This will cause ice dams that will rip the rain gutters from the fascia and you two problems to deal with – damaged fascia and a rain gutter that will likely need to be replaced.
- You would never think that a roofing system needs fresh air – most think that you need to keep fresh out of your roofing system to keep temperatures in the house stable. But a roofing system needs a fresh air return for the health of the wood supports in the attic that hold up your house. The soffit is panel filled with small holes that help fresh air to rise into the attic – once there it forces warm or hot air out of the attic through the vents. The hot air that rises from the house is very moist – and the moisture is what will wreck the wood supports or cause health hazards. A soffit repair in Southampton can prevent this problem from growing but if you aren’t paying attention a soffit installation in Southampton will tamp down the problem. Wet air will be absorbed by dry wood – if it doesn’t dry properly because more wet air gets into the attic, wood rot becomes a real problem along with mold. Like cancer, mold and wood rot need to be cut away from the host and that is an expensive proposition and you may have to re-engineer your entire roofing system to clear up the damage.
