Rain gutters are an important and essential part of protecting your home. During storms and downpours, gutters work to draw the water away from your home and help it drain properly. A properly installed and maintained rain gutter can save countless hundreds and even thousands of dollars in roofing, fascia, siding and foundation repairs over the years.
Though you may not think it, there is a wide variety of selections available when it comes to rain gutters. Seamless, copper, aluminum, steel, etc.
When considering which rain gutters to purchase, keep maintenance, style and materials in mind. You'll want the style and color that best fits your home, but also consider maintenance and the best materials for the job.
Soffits are the underside of an architectural feature such as a beam, ceiling, or cornice. Vinyl or aluminum soffit is used to cover, dress, decorate or add ventilation to your attic. Soffits are designed for ventilation to aid your heating and cooling costs. A properly installed soffit system is designed to provide maximum air flow to the attic area. It also helps prevent heat build- up and moisture accumulation that can cause costly damage and deterioration to your roof. In addition, vinyl soffits provide the appeal of freshly painted wood without the maintenance required. In fact, vinyl soffits never needs to be painted.
Fascia is the exterior edge of a roof's overhang. It covers up the sub fascia or sub band around the edge of a roof. It prevents water and moisture from entering through the soffit. Soffit and fascia combined form a watertight seal around the lower part of the roof and allows proper venting which is required in a healthy roofing system.
