Eavestroughs are important features of our homes’ roof structure. But, they can pose as a source of real threat to your home if not properly taken care of.  Gutters should enjoy regular cleaning together with the downspouts to guarantee the safety of your home from various forms of damages. In case you neglect your eve troughs you may encounter.

Eavestrough and Drain Blockage

Gutters are installed in order to collect water from the roof, channeling it to the downspouts, where it is released into the backyard or the water carrying system. But, if the gutters are blocked with twigs, leaves and other debris, they will not effectively serve their purpose. Regular and thorough eavestrough cleaning will ensure the gutters as well as the downspouts a clear of any debris hence effectively performing their services.

Roof Damage

If you allow leaves and other forms of debris to build up in your trough, you will be faced with quite a huge threat on your roof. Leaves and other debris may hold on to water against the roof, hence leading to unpleasant mold growth. If it goes without discovery, it may compromise the integrity of the roofing system.

Inspections and Maintenance

Finding a good eavestrough cleaning service may also present some other benefits. Due to time and exposure to temperature and weather changes, ferrules and spikes become loose. A good service person should be able to fix them. Additionally, a good service person should carry an extensive inspection of the roof, gutters and eveastrough in order to note all the areas that require immediate repairs. This can definitely prevent a small issue turning into a major concern and costing you far much more to repair.

How do you find a good Service Technician in your city?

Finding a good and reliable service technician to take care of your troughs can sometimes be a difficult task. However, there are several communication channels through which you can find a technician of your choice. You may consider asking your friends or family whether they know any reputable technician within your locality. Also remember to ask whether there are any technicians you should avoid during your search.

It’s not the shingles that go bad every so often, it’s the improper intake and exhaust system that is not performing like it supposed to. If the temperature in your attic is much different from outside, that is a perfect sign.

An attic that is not venting properly could cause many problems during summer and winter to your roof and to your pocket if you ask me. Lack of ventilation causes ice damming and condensation during winter months and it can get ugly. During summer months your attic will act like a furnace cooking the certain areas of your home. Your roof shingles are always under the sun and it is designed to expand and shrink depending on the temperature. When there is lack of ventilation that can be caused by improper intake system which is referred to your soffit that is designed to allow the fresh air to enter your attic and balance the temperature.

If you have gutters installed all around your house there may be few sections around the house where the water works its way through behind the gutters. During winter months there may be ice build up as well.

When replacing a roof first layer of shingles are installed backwards to create a straight edge. Normally they are called starter strips and they stick out almost an inch from the fascia. Second row of shingle are installed right over the starter strips. Suppose of starter strips are to act as an drip-edge to allow water to run down without making contact to plywood or get behind the fascia and cause damage. If you have water dripping from your soffit, it is caused by not having starter strips or drip-edge installed properly or you have damaged shingles causing water damage.

Drip-edge is the first thing that gets installed on the fascia. Ice and water shield gets installed right over the drip edge and followed by tar/felt paper overlapping from button to top. Having a second layer of protection under neat the shingles is beneficial to every home. If wind has flipped or tore some of your shingles tar/felt paper will protect the plywood from water damage until all the necessary repairs are completed. If the water does make its way under neat the shingles it will run right into your gutter if you have any. It will slow down the process of water damage before it is corrected.

When it comes to replacing a pitched or flat roof it is highly recommended to take all the necessary steps to get the job done right.
