Fascia and soffit repairs

High winds, snow and ice, animals – major cause of soffit and fascia, downspouts damage. Aluminum fascia boards at roof gables  and downspouts are often picked by strong winds and soffit panels are lifted or damaged by squirrels, birds and racoons trying to find a comfortable living in the roof attic.

Drip Edge Matters

  Installing a drip edge properly can make all the difference in avoiding problems such as ice damming.
 For clarification, a drip edge is a modified L-shaped flashing used along the eaves and rakes of a roof. The drip edge directs runoff water into the gutters and away from the fascia. In terms of placement, the drip edge should be installed under the roofing felt on the bottom edge of the roof and over the roofing felt on the gable ends, if applicable. The drip edge is supposed to be placed with a ¼-inch gap between the flashing and the edge of the roof sheathing or fascia. This gives a drip line that is not butted directly against wood trim.

It is unlikely that mis-installed drip edges will have a significant effect on the occurrence of ice damming. However, it can increase the water getting into the wall/eave area from ice damming or other causes. It could also lead to accelerated rot at the eaves/fascia area.
Ice dams are a cold weather problem caused by snow melting over heated portions of a building and refreezing at colder portions of the roof, creating a dam. Water produced by subsequent melting then backs up under the shingles, eventually causing damage to insulation, interior finishes, and more. The snow melts due to heat loss into the attic from inadequate insulation, air leakage, and/or inadequate ventilation.
Ice dam precautions include:

  • Making sure the roof is adequately insulated to account for local climatic conditions.
  • Installing raised-heel trusses, if necessary, to allow full-depth insulation and proper ventilation over exterior walls.
  • Sealing all penetrations into the attic from ceilings or walls.
  • Installing continuous soffit-and-ridge vent systems and baffles at the lower side of the roof, with a clear pathway of at least two inches between the top of the insulation and the roof sheathing.

You may also consider insulating around and sealing leaks from ducts and vents in the attic, although the primary emphasis should be on providing proper ventilation and following good insulation practices.

Leaking Gutters

Gutters may leak along their length, at seams, at end caps, at changes in direction, and at downspout connections. No matter what material is used for the gutters,

leaks are most common at seams and changes in direction.

So here is some tips from

Leaks may be caused by:

? thermal expansion and contraction

? mechanical damage (i.e.. the impact of ladders)

? broken solder joints
? dried caulking or adhesive

? rusting or rotting of the gutter material


Check Seams-

  • Look carefully at seams and along the bottom of gutters ,
  • Look at changes in direction and at downspout connections.

Look for Resultant Damage

  • Leaks are easy to find during or shortly after a rain but may be difficult to identify if there has not been any rain recently. Staining or streaking may be helpful, but these may also suggest over­flowing gutters
  • Look for damage to fascia, soffits, siding, and landscaping that suggests gutter problems. This includes moss, fungus, peeling paint, and rot. On masonry walls, also look for efflorescence, spalling. and deteriorated mortar.


  • If looking at gutters from above, you may notice patching materials in the gut­ters. This usually indicates attempts to repair leaking gutters. If it is a scam prob­lem, the situation may be localized and minor. If the metal is rusted through, the gutters may be near the end of their life. Sometimes this patching will be on downspouts. Similarly, you can use the distance between the bottom of the gutter and the bottom of the fascia board to check the slope.

Typical Slope-

Many gutters are nearly horizontal, and while more slope is better, almost any slope will work reasonably well. An ideal slope of approximately 1:25 is never achieved because fascias are too short and gutter runs are too long to allow a gutter to fall roughly 1 inch every 2 feet. A slope of 1:200 (1-inch drop over a run of 17 feet ) is more typical, and it is acceptable if there are no low spots . Some gutters slope from a high point in the middle to downspout at either end. Either situations acceptable.
