Sometimes the fascia needs to be painted or replaced before the roof is done. It has constant exposure to the weather and is more prone to damage than other parts of the house.
The soffit under the overhang of the roof may be damaged and needs to be painted or replaced. The soffit is important to provide ventilation to keep the attic cooler in the summer and dryer in the winter to prevent the growth of moisture and mold. If there is not good airflow ventilation through the soffit and the vents at the top of the roof, the attic can get up to 200 degrees in the summer and the excessive heat will shorten the life of the shingles. Also, some of that 200-degree heat will come through the ceiling insulation and make the air-conditioning work harder than it should. Your electric bill will be sky-high. So, additional vents may need to be installed, the soffit may need to be replaced, or an attic fan may need to be installed or replaced. These items are very important to extend the life of your new shingles. Here at HCS Roofing & Restoration, your Kansas City residential roofing contractor, we strive to save our customers money.
Gutters and downspouts may be damaged, dented, or disconnected. They divert the water away from the home foundation, so it does not sink and require expensive repair.
We can place leaf gutter cover systems to prevent leaves from clogging your gutters. If the water overflows next to the house foundation it can cause serious and expensive damage to the foundation. Also, gutter covers prevent your need to get on a tall ladder to clean them and risk a dangerous fall.
If water gets into your house through the damaged roof and damages the ceiling, we have team members who can replace the wallboard, spackle, and repaint the room or ceiling.
