Soffit and Fascia Repair in Hyde Park

At ProMaster, we know all about the damage water can cause to many different parts of your home. In fact, one of the reasons we developed our own box gutter liner was because we have performed soffit and fascia repair in Hyde Park for years. We know all too well the problems that can occur when box gutters begin to leak. The soffit and fascia on many homes in the Cincinnati area are made with wood. While that's not the worst thing in the world, it does create the possibility of wood rot down the line. One of the best decisions you can make as a homeowner is to replace your wooden boards with a more weatherproof material. One option is a composite PVC product. This will give the appearance of wood, but prevents damage from moisture and insects, such as wood rot and splitting.

Replacing all of those wooden boards, of course, can be an expensive proposition. Because of this, most homeowners are stuck with the original construction. Moreover, many homeowners aren't aware of the necessary maintenance that can help prevent wood rot on soffit and fascia. Invariably, these individuals find themselves seeking to repair damage a few years later.

To avoid the worst-case situation, homeowners should perform a professional soffit and fascia repair in Hyde Park. And they should do it before the damage gets out of hand. The longer you wait, the worse the problem gets. The worse the problem gets, the more expensive to fix it. When you find that you are in need of a fascia board wood rot repair, act quickly. Additionally, have the work done by a professional home repair company.

Why Do Soffit and Fascia Damage Occur?

The need for soffit and fascia repair in Hyde Park is usually brought about by water getting in where it doesn't belong. While we go into greater detail about why this type of damage occurs in a past blog post, we’ll give you the quick version here. Generally, soffit and fascia damage occur when rain water finds its way from top of the roof to the ground without the appropriate redirection. Ideally, the rain hits the roof, goes down the shingles and into the gutter. After that, it travels through a downspout, and finally to the ground where it won’t affect your home.

The problem lies with residue that gets left behind on the edge of the shingles; it will slowly drip down and likely find its way down into the soffit. This is what causes soffits and fascia to develop wood rot. To protect this from happening, newer homes use something called a drip edge to redirect that residue into the gutter. Drip edges are a great way to maintain your soffit and fascia, just make sure it’s working properly every once and a while as we discover they are often missing or damaged on older homes.

What to Look For in Soffit and Fascia Repair

Before you get too deep into researching soffit and fascia repair in Hyde Park, know what to look for on your home. Whenever we have some nice weather, do a quick inspection of the outside of your home. Be sure to keep an eye out for a couple of warning signs that would indicate you might be in need of a soffit and fascia repair:

  1. Differences between gutter and fascia: Any discoloration or peeling paint you can spot that looks different than the surrounding areas is an indication of water intrusion. Remember, deterioration of a fascia board can usually be fixed before repairs get too extensive (and expensive).
  2. Streaks or water stains: This is usually an indicator that water is coming over the edge of the gutter. The sooner you can figure out what is keeping the water in your gutter from flowing appropriately, the less likely it will be that the water will get into the soffit or fascia. You don't want things to get so out of hand the that fascia begins pulling away from the house, like in this article:
