How To Maintain Fascias & Soffits?

29th September 2021

A well-maintained roof is the best way to protect your home from water damage and costly repairs, but it can be hard to know when it’s time for new fascias or gutter cleaning. We’re here with some tips on how to tell if your fascia soffits and gutters need repairing or replacing and how to maintain your roofline to ensure its durability and longevity.

Regular cleaning

The first thing that needs to be done is have the fascias, soffits and gutters cleaned up. This will remove any dirt or debris that may have accumulated over time. It also helps with keeping things dry in the summer months by preventing water from spilling anywhere on the exterior of your home. 

Examining for damage or peeled paint

This may indicate that there are leaks in the area causing moisture damage. You might also notice algae growth  which indicates that there has been an issue for quite some time now.  It is important for homeowners to examine gutters, fascia boards and soffits regularly. A quick inspection can help identify any problems before they become larger issues.

Unclogging the gutters

Leaks from clogged gutters are a nuisance that can be prevented with proper maintenance. You may not know you have a leak until you see water damage in your home or garage, but this is an issue that needs to be taken care of as soon as possible.   If you want to avoid expensive repairs and the hassle of cleaning up after a leak, make sure to unclog clogged gutters on your property every 2-3 months by clearing away any debris buildup.

One of the most overlooked aspects of home maintenance is exterior upkeep. Keeping your fascias, soffits and gutters in good condition will help you avoid costly repairs down the road.
