Rain Gutters And Downspouts InstallationThe rain gutter’s purpose is to redirect water from the rain gutter into a proper drainage. Installing a downspout is probably the last item that a person will do when installing a rain gutter. It is important that downspouts are of the correct length and that it must fulfill its most important objective and that is to catch rainwater. Installing gutters isn’t that difficult, but what if you discover rotted fascia boards that need to be replaced? That is why it’s best to contact professional roofers who will install a rain gutter properly and timely.
Roof Drip Edge InstallationRoof drip edge provides a finished look to houses but its main function is waterproofing. Situated along the roof border, it stops water from being blown or seeping under roof tiles, preventing leaks. It improves water shedding efficiency at the borders, pushing water away from the building, adding protection to the underlying wood. Not only does the edging prevent water from blowing under your shingles, but a lip along the borders makes water drip down out and away from your house, instead of directly down the wall or fascia. This helps prevent water damage all the way from its roof to its foundation. It guards against movements between the deck and fascia boards. Before installation there are several requirements that should be taken into account:
- It must be corrosion resistant
- It should be applied directly to the deck along the eaves
- On the rakes, they are applied on top of the underlayment
- It should be nailed as needed to hold into place
