Exploring Eavestrough Materials and Installation Techniques

Hi there, my name is Darby Mitchells. I am here to talk to you about eavestrough, or gutter, installations. The roof on your home features a number of components that direct rainwater to the edges. From there, the eavestrough allow water to run straight to the downspouts. The downspouts direct water to a drain that keeps the moisture away from the house. In addition to protecting your roofing materials from damage, gutters make it comfortable to walk under your roofline during heavy downpours. Without eavestrough, a heavy stream of water would pour over the edges of your roof at all times. I will discuss the benefits of installing and maintaining gutters on my site. I will also share information about gutter materials and installation techniques. Thanks for coming to my website.

5 Ways A Roofing Company Can Help You With Regular Maintenance

by Martha Soto

Roofing companies are not just for replacing your roof. If you are not able to get up on your roof, roofing companies can also help you take care of your roof with regular roofing maintenance.

#1 Clean Your Gutters

One of the more popular roofing tasks that a roofing company can help you with is cleaning out your gutters. Debris can accumulate in your gutters over time and should be cleaned out a couple of times a year. Some roofing companies even sell gutter cleaning packages so that you can purchase multiple cleanings for the entire year all at once at a discounted rate.

#2 Inspect & Care for Your Gutters

In addition to cleaning your gutters, the roofing company will also check your gutters. They will make sure that your gutters are properly attached to your home, and that your gutters have the right slope and angle to them.

They will also make sure that your downspouts are properly secured to your home and positioned correctly.

#3 Replace Missing or Damaged Shingles

Sometimes, just a few shingles on your roof need to be replaced. If some shingles were blown off in a recent storm, a roofing company can change out those shingles for you. If just a patch of your shingles are showing usual wear and tear, they can change out those shingles for you. They can make sure that all of your shingles are working properly and protecting your home.

#4 Seal Around Vents & Pipes

The vents and pipes on your roof are one of the more vulnerable areas on your roof. They need to be properly sealed in order to keep water from seeping in around these objects and getting under your roof.

A roofing company can check all of your vents and pipes and make sure that they are properly sealed. If the seal is compromised or old, they can add new caulking to secure the seal. Or they can also change out the larger seal around your vents and pipes if necessary as well.

#5 Take Care of Your Chimney

Many roofing companies can also take care of your chimney. They can make sure that there is a good seal between your roof and your chimney. They can also address and take care of any structural issues with your chimney such as loose bricks. They may be able to install a chimney cap for you as well or even clean your chimney.

If you can't take care of your roof on your own, a roofing company can help you with regular maintenance tasks such as cleaning your gutters, sealing around vents and pipes, replacing damaged shingles, and taking care of your chimney. For more information, contact a company like Shipp Roofing.
