How your eavestrough, fascia, and soffit coexist together
- At first glance, you might think that your roofing is made up of disparate parts that work independently, you would be wrong. The eavestrough is central to water drainage from the roof as it handles the water that runs down from the shingles and once in the eavestrough it is routed to the ground. Materials in the eavestrough channels will inhibit water movement, and an eavestrough repair in Port Carling is just the ticket to get water routed to the downspouts. A lot of times the buildup is slow to be recognized and the material in the channels will have a damaging effect on the eavestrough and an eavestrough installation in Port Carling should be able to save the other elements of the roofing system. Water that is forced over the eavestrough channels is bad for the house, a rain gutter repair in Port Carling will help stop water that will find its way into your home if the drainage isn’t tightly controlled. A rain gutter repair replacement in Port Carling will effectively blunt any drainage problems and keep your exterior dry and that means no water inside your home either.
- For the uninitiated, the fascia is a wood strip that is aligned underneath the eavestrough and it closes an opening between the decking and the eavestrough at the roof’s edge. If you have gutter trouble and water is making its way to the ground independent of the eavestrough, your fascia will take a hit and it means a fascia repair in Port Carling. Wood rot and mold are extremely invasive and it will harm the fascia from the get-go. Once you pull the strip from mooring that anchors it to the house, you will get a clear picture of the damage that overflowing water did to the fascia. In the event that the damage isn’t localized, a fascia installation in Port Carling is a way out of the problem that will have a lasting impact. On the subject of impact, the fascia experiences problems not of its own making and the results could prove fatal for the fascia. In the attic, you have insulation, or at least you should – if not that is where the injury to the fascia will come from. As warm air rises through your home, it will end in the attic – poor insulation will release the heat to the shingles and any snow on the roof will turn to water quickly. Once liquefied, the snow will turn to ice and from ice dams at the eavestrough and fascia when cooler temperature prevail. The dams will make the eavestrough and fascia a victim of the damage as the ice will force the eavestrough away from the fascia – leaving a small to large-sized gap for water to stream away from your house.
- Once it was discovered that warm, moist air would damage wooden supports in the attic a system for air return needed to be invented to prevent the damage that water vapour was doing to the rafters and trusses. Hence the invention of the soffit – it is a panel that has holes drilled into to it and that is the source of the fresh air that will counterbalance water vapour in the attic. Regular maintenance for the soffit is a must, and it usually falls along the lines of a soffit repair in Port Carling to relieve the holes of any dirt or blockage that prevents air circulation in the attic. If you have had other problems like fascia work to prevent mold or wood rot from spreading, that might just establish a need for a soffit installation in Port Carling to keep mold spores or wood rot from spreading into the interior of the roofing system.
