What and Where is Rotten Wood On My Home?
The wood beneath your gutters called a fascia board is a board running
horizontally under a roof edge that covers the openings between the rafters of the roof and is used as the main mounting support for a home's rain gutter system. The fascia board typically consisting of wood, wood substitute, metal, or wood with metal cladding, along with a soffit board, encloses the attic space of most homes. Over time water deteriorates this board and causes your gutters to sag away from the house. This can be caused by short shingles allowing water to flow behind the gutter system, clogged gutters overflowing the back of the gutter, leaking seams, and or leaking corners. In any case, it is imperative for the rotten wood to be replaced to prevent the rain gutter system from falling off the house or to enable a new rain gutter system to be installed properly and securely.
How Important is Wood Repair?
Aging wood exposed to the elements can deteriorate quickly and can damage your gutters by letting them fall off of your home. If left unrepaired gutters can even become a falling hazard as they can be extremely heavy if clogged and when or if they fall could damage other property or worse, could even injure someone. For safety and proper maintenance, it is important to replace any and all rotten wood. A periodic inspection will keep you up to speed and help you keep your gutters maintained and firmly attached to your home.
