How the systems connect to move water, and the problems that occur when they don’t
- Starting at the shingles, water is streamed to the eavestrough for removal from the roofing system through the downspouts. So far so good, but you need to keep an eye on the eavestrough because they fill up with leaves and other debris that can and will impair the movement of water in the channels. If you have anything present in the channels it will slow the flow of water and that means an eavestrough repair in Annan to get the water flowing quickly enough to prevent the clogs from causing spillage. If you don’t maintain the eavestrough, the next problem you will have is holes and cracks in the channels and then an eavestrough replacement in Annan for your home is necessary. When water overflows the channels at the eavestrough, it moves down the house or straight to the ground and a rain gutter repair in Annan should be taken as soon as you are aware of the problem. If a repair won’t satisfy the problem, a rain gutter replacement in Annan will be that last resort for a homeowner all because early warning signs were either ignored or misinterpreted.
- The work that is the fascia’s job is one of sealing up an opening and keeping water or wood rot or mold from penetrating the roofing system. The fascia is a strip of wood or aluminum-clad wood that runs around the base of the eavestrough and it seals the gap between the eavestrough and roof. If you have water running unrestrained over the channels of the gutters, the fascia will take the hit and if the fascia is predominantly wood, rot will be inevitable. When rot comes a fascia repair in Annan might get the problem solved, but you want to err on the side of caution and take the advice of the roofing contractor when he says a fascia replacement in Annan is the best choice to prevent further problems from coming up in the future. If you have a lack of insulation in the attic – it can be problematic for the fascia – warm air rises – according to physics – and it ends up in the attic. If you have snow on the roof, the snow will melt when the shingles heat up over freezing temperatures and water will move to the gutters. Sure, that is you want it to do, but wait there is more. When the water re-freezes when the temperature drop, ice dams will be formed at the gutters and expanding ice will force a gap in between the fascia and the gutters. This will produce a three-pronged strategy for repairs, new or a top-up of insulation, replacing the damaged fascia and an inspection of the gutters to see if they can be saved for more usage.
- You don’t get warm, moist air in the attic unless your soffit isn’t functioning properly – it is a panel that surrounds the underside of the fascia and has holes staggered throughout the panel for ventilation for the roof. If you have an increase in attic temperatures, get a soffit repair in Annan to support the airflow to the attic. The warm, moist air will ruin the supports in the attic – the joists and trusses will absorb the vapour and become spongy. The spongy supports will sag when holding up the roof and you can see it with some houses with bows in the middle of the roof. That means a soffit replacement in Annan to prevent the roof from falling in on the attic because the supports have experienced too much vapour damage.
