Rotting Fascia Can Compromise Your Home

Has your home got trouble that you don’t know about?

03mar29da15A lot of people do not consider the fascia  on their homes, or even know that it is there and it is so important. If you’ve ever had problems with your gutters, then chances are that you’ve had problems with your fascia as well. The longer you wait to fix these damages, the worse the damage is going to be on the fascia.

With proper maintenance and repair of the gutter system around your home, you can make sure that the gutters and fascia last as long as possible.

Blockages in the Rain Handling System 

Blockages in your gutters and/or downspouts means that there might be an overflow of water into the home because it’s stuck inside your rain handling system and needs a way out.  This built-up water can lead to numerous damages with not only the gutters but also the fascia in the home (or worse). Debris should be removed through maintenance that can be done throughout the entire year. These blockages can easily cause future problems.

It Can Cause a Chain Reaction

When the fascia is bad, it can cause a chain reaction with the other parts of the home and even the inside of the home. If the fascia is left to sit there and rot, it can detach from the home and cause the gutters to sag and fall down. When this happens, the water is not being directed away from the home but inside the home.

If any of these problems occur, it is best to find a professional that is able to provide the necessary help. Repairing or replacing these areas might prove to be a bit more difficult than you originally expected, which can cause further problems when the area is not corrected in time.

While you’re checking the status of your fascia boards, check your gutters as well.  Find out if you need new gutters.
