Is Your Fascia Board Rotting?

Soffit & FasciaYour soffit and fascia are vital parts of the overall system that diverts rain away from your house. But sometimes the fascia start to rot because water is getting behind the gutters.

What’s going on? Are the gutters the problem? Should you rip them down, concluding that they do more harm than good?

Believe it or not, some homeowners actually do this. And it’s a terrible idea!

Now, that’s not to say the original gutters may not have been a problem. Poorly installed gutters can certainly endanger your fascia.

Poorly maintained gutters can be a problem, too. A saggy, leaky gutter isn’t protecting your home.

So what’s the solution?

Properly installed seamless aluminum gutters should put an end to this problem. They’re custom-made to fit snugly on your home, and the seams are only at the corners, so there are fewer potential leak sites.

From there, it’s merely a matter of keeping your gutters clean. To make this easier, we recommend our fine-mesh leaf guards. These allow water to flow while keeping debris out.

Ours fit right in the gutter. They’re not just a “gutter screen” that lets a whole bunch of stuff in.
