Keeping a roofing system working, one part at a time
- The eavestrough is a timeless invention that moves water from the roof to the ground through an integrated downspout system. The reason we say timeless is that the eavestrough hasn’t really changed in 100 years – maybe the material but not the design or the function. The problem with an eavestrough is also its greatest strength – an open channel that will receive water and anything else that is the atmosphere. Debris buildup can be a nuisance and an eavestrough repair in Hepworth will take the headache of blocked channel away and get the water rushing to the ground. Timely reactions to problems on the roofing system prevent expensive repairs, but one thing you can’t prevent is damage to the channels when twigs or wet leaves get into the channels. Punctures or pinholes will let water drain across the side of the house and an eavestrough replacement in Hepworth will be needed to flush out the problems. Blockage of the channels due to garbage in the channels means water on the house and a rain gutter repair in Hepworth can be beneficial to stopping water entry in the home through crevices in the house walls. If your rain gutter has some age to it a rain gutter replacement in Hepworth might be a worthwhile investment and give you peace of mind for 10-20 years or as long as you own your home.
- The fascia sits below the eavestrough and above soffit and it is a wood lath strip or an aluminum-clad wood strip that closes up the opening between the eavestrough and the decking on the home. When water cascades over the rain gutter and runs down the house, the fascia is the first point that water will hit. If the exposure is to water if brief, a fascia repair in Hepworth can remove the rotten the fascia. But, more often than not, the wood rot has infected the fascia to the point that a repair won’t help and a fascia installation in Hepworth should be taken to prevent the rot from spreading to the attic. If your attic insulation isn’t up to provincial standards, it will hurt the fascia in a way that you might not expect. In the winter, the heat from our homes rises, that is why the second-floor of the house is warmer than the main level. But the heat rising doesn’t stop there, it goes to the attic and warms the shingles. If the temperature of the roof is above freezing the snow will melt and then run for the eavestrough, and that is good until the water freezes at the eavestrough. Ice dams form and an opening is created – an unwanted one as the eavestrough needs to be flush with the fascia to keep the water off the house. This is a two-pronged repair, upgrading the attic insulation to prevent heat release and quite possibly a fascia installation at the source of the ice dam to keep it from ripping more of the eavestrough away from the fascia.
- Making a commitment to good roofing health means we will be vigilant looking for other problems that affect our roofing system. One area of the roof that is difficult to police is soffit. Its work is done quietly and without attention – it draws fresh air into the attic through ventilated panels that run under the fascia. If the small ventilation shafts become impacted with dust or dirt it will impair airflow. A soffit repair in Hepworth might be all you need to get the ventilation shafts open and drawing air into the attic. The attic temperature will determine the success of the soffit repair; it should be relative to the outside temperature, if not, Houston we have a problem. That should tell you you need a soffit installation in Hepworth to get the temperature back to manageable levels. Warm, moist air causes humid conditions in the attic and when it does it is because the soffit is failing and when that happens the joists and rafters are in danger of major damage. Water vapour creates mold and wood rot, and when it does it is almost assured that an entire roof restoration will be part of the maintenance plan for your home.
