Three Investments That Can Save Your Fascia BoardApril 30, 2015
The fascia board is that unfortunate piece of wood that is tasked with holding your gutters up; usually with nails that fix your gutter in place. They tend to be a point of contention as time goes by and when they start to rot. This can lead to your gutter system failing—eventually costing a small fortune in repairs. At Huff ‘N Puff, we have three great solutions worth investing in that will open you up to a world of greater savings. Check them out.
If you’re straddled with a traditional gutter, one of the problems that come with it is that gaps start to form between its sections over time. Even if these gaps are very narrow, they are points where water can leak through. It’s this water seeping into your fascia board that can cause rot. Seamless gutters in Saratoga Springs, NY suffer from no such drawbacks. We custom-fit them perfectly for your home’s needs and leave no room for leaks to form.
SnapLock™ Attachment System
It’s not just water seeping through seams that causes fascia board rot. Traditional gutters are nailed onto the fascia board. While this can be secure (at first), they also inadvertently provide a tunnel that shunts leaking water into the wood—initiating the damage. With SnapLock, you have a way to attach your seamless gutter onto your roof without the need for penetrating nails. The best thing is that the technology has also proven to be very, very durable and long lasting.
This last solution might seem optional but it actually rounds out the first two solutions perfectly. When you install Gutter Helmet, it blocks any and all leaves and debris from ever entering your gutters. The small slit that lines the edge only allows water into the gutter’s trough. This means you now also are free from worrying about clogs and blockages—further extending the service life of your gutter.
