Important Roofing must Knows

Get to know your roof: Two of the most important parts of the roof are the soffit and fascia.

Part of the function of the soffit is to assist in ventilating the attic. The soffit typically features a plain design with small holes that provide air circulation. The air from the soffit cycles to the vents to draw heat and moisture away from the house. This is a highly important function because moisture in the attic can develop rot in the sheathing and rafters.

The fascia is a vertical finishing edge connected to the ends of the rafters, trusses, or the area where the gutter is attached to the roof. The primary role of the fascia is to act as a layer between the edge of the roof and the outdoors, and is meant to protect the wooden board against water damage that can occur during certain weather conditions.

It's important to know the functions of these two parts, and Above All Roofing understands time is sensitive when either of these crucial aspects of a roof requires attention. Serving the Vacaville and the Solano County, let us take care of your roof for you.

Summer Roof Days!

Don't Feel Down in the Gutter

Did you know that just an inch of a summer rainfall pours close to 1500 gallons of water onto your roof? That’s why the performance of your gutters is so important to protecting your home. Waterfalls flowing over your gutters during a summer rainfall are a strong indication that you have clogged gutters – and clogged gutters can lead to some expensive home repairs.

Your home’s gutters and downspouts are designed to move water down from the roof and away from your home and foundation for proper drainage. Water that can’t flow through your gutters finds the easiest path – and that often means the water comes right into your ceiling and walls.

This can lead to moisture and mold if not treated. This may especially occur to homes left vacant while you  are away on your summer trip.

Invest the time to call Above All Roofing, and allow us to check and make any necessary repairs to you gutter and downspouts. W service of all Solano County including Vacaville.
