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.

Small Repairs and Maintenance. Part 1


 Hi Everyone! We hope you all began this New 2013 Year with Joy!


As we all know, sometimes or I would say most of the times our belongings or goods require a little tuneup or fixing. And it doesn’t matter what it is – our car, TV, furnace or driveway.
If we have a flat tire or leaky radiator in our car do we go and buy a new car right a way?
Of course not! Or at least 98% of the times not. We are trying to fix it!
And our eavestrough systems or gutters, downspouts, soffit and fascia’s, siding – are not an exception.    Most of the times – they repairable, unless they physically damaged. Even if that the case – partial replacement could be done.
There is something else that may make repair pointless, unless you change entire system – its Time. Nothing last forever, and when Time comes we are all changing cars, TV’s, driveways as well as eavestrough systems or gutters, downspouts, soffit and fascia’s, siding.
Main reason – its old and outdated,  it is not efficient anymore and keep fixing it may cost more then a cost of getting it brand new.
But our today’s article is about those things that we can fix or repair, without changing or replacing an entire gutter or eavestrough system or walls of siding.
So lets take a closer look at those repairable items:

1.  Leaking gutter or eavestrough corners or miter joints

Caulking or silicon that used to seal eavestrough corner is old and worn-out or was not properly applied, bad product, to much standing water  – many causes.
– Repairable ? Most of the cases – Yes!
But it is very important to get it done by professional eavestrough and gutter technician, who has all needed tools and experience. Don’t call “handyman” or DIY for that – ladder and caulking gun is not all the tools you need, and strip of silicon on eavestrough’s joint outside edge is not going to solve the problem, same if it will be put on top of existing, old caulking, especially applied on dirty, wet surface. It will make our job more difficult and for this reason cost you more. Old caulking needs to be completely removed before applying a fresh coat. Period. Please call our Pro’s for that or request estimate online!

2.   Downspout fell or hanging loose

High winds and lack of straps, concrete cracks, ice damming and many other conditions may lead to downspout detachment from the wall and from the eavestrough outlet.  As a result, if it wasn’t repaired immediately – downspout complete detachment and fall, luckily not injuring anyone nor course someone’s property damage.
What to do:
If its not to late try to secure it to the wall at the point it broke off, if the downspout strap is still in the good shape – re-secure it with concrete nails or “Tapcon” screws. Make sure it tied to the wall and not loose, otherwise it will happen again.  If downspout strap is completely broken, try to secure it temporary to something solid (like fence of post or etc) with a wire, scotch tape or rope till it gets permanent repair.
If your downspout fell off and rest on the ground – 90% it is bent or damage and can’t be placed back without affecting esthetic look and working condition.

Also check old downspout for a split seam at the back. It happens very often.
 If you need any help with your downspouts – don’t hesitate, call
Maxima Aluminum LTD for quality repair.

3. Fascia, soffit or siding, flashing panel –  loose, detached or damaged

  Same like with downspouts, high winds, animals, poor installation and other circumstances as a cause of damaged, bent and detached flashing, soffit, fascia and siding panels.
If it’s just got loose or detached – most likely its not a big deal and can be fixed by adding some screws or finishing nails.
But when it got damaged – then its more complicated: you need to match color, shape and pattern. Many of capping parts are custom bent. Local hardware stores can offer you a very limited selection of colors, not talking about profiles.
Here, at Maxima Aluminum LTD we can offer you a wide selection of colors and profiles to match your soffit, fascia or siding to satisfy all your needs. Call as today for a free estimate !

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.

At any time our team will be glad to answer any topic related questions and provide you with ideas how to choose the right solution for any gutter/eavestrough concerns.
