The fascia and roof linings play an essential role in draining moisture from the roof structure. Although the name is foreign, you undoubtedly saw the boxes under the roof that surrounds the house. They are part of the gutter. First, the fascia keeps the gutters in the correct position. It is vital that the water runs through the drain pipe instead of splashing on the roof. Second, they collect moisture and help it evaporate through the roofs in the lower part of the structure. While the mechanism is working correctly, your roof will remain secure.
What is happening so often? If the gutters are filled with fallen leaves or the drain pipe becomes clogged, water splashes on the edges of the boards at the bottom of the roof. They absorb moisture and begin to lose shape and rot. From this point, the damage extends through all the roof layers. Rainwater begins to seep inside. This can cause large losses if the process is not stopped. Call today for a Quote on 01 5176259
