If you’re considering new gutters or even a new roof, be sure to take a close look at the condition of your existing fascia. Typically, your gutters are attached to the fascia so these important trim boards need to be strong and sturdy. Unfortunately, these boards are especially vulnerable to water damage and rot caused by ice dams, improperly installed flashing, and damaged gutters, yet are often overlooked when homeowners replace aging roofs or damaged gutters.
Located on the underside of your eaves is the soffit. Wooden, damaged, or outdated soffits may cause significant and costly damage to your home. Furthermore, aging soffits typically don’t provide adequate ventilation in roof rafters. Stratton Exteriors will analyze your existing soffit and fascia (trim boards) and make the best recommendation for the age and style of your home.
