Gutters & Vents

Your roof depends on several components to work properly, and two of them are your gutters and roof vents. These important components can affect your roof’s lifespan, which means they need to be properly installed and regularly maintained.

The average asphalt roof should last between 20 and 30 years with proper care and maintenance. However, even minor issues can shave years of your roof’s life – and in many cases, outside of storm and hail damage, the roofs we repair and replace have gutter and ventilation issues.

How Gutters Work

Gutters are open at the top and create a pathway for water to flow off – and away from – your home. They’re attached to the fascia (the band under the edge of your roof).

As your gutters carry away water, they prevent the air in your attic from absorbing moisture, as well as water damage to your roof that could cause rot, deterioration and mold. The water can’t land on the ground next to your foundation, though – if that happens, erosion can damage your foundation or flood your basement.

That’s where downspouts that point away from your home come in; they stop water from soaking into the ground right next to your foundation or basement walls.

Gutters

Rainwater and snow melt are natural occurrences, but either can cause damage to your home. Properly installed and maintained gutters keep the soil around your home stable and help you avoid foundation problems, and they prevent water damage to your siding and masonry.

Clogged, broken or improperly maintained gutters can cause a wide range of issues with your home, including leaks and water damming, which can damage your eaves and your roof. Issues with your gutters can lead to costly roof repairs or complete roof replacement.

Properly installed gutter systems include seamless gutters on every edge of a sloped roof to encourage water runoff – and they should be securely fastened to the fascia with sturdy downspouts that carry water away from your foundation.

How Roof Vents Work

Every home has different needs when it comes to roof ventilation, but there are two main types of vents: Exhaust vents and intake vents.

Exhaust vents allow air and moisture to escape your attic. If your exhaust vents aren’t working properly, that stale, hot and damp air will stay in your attic, eventually leading to mold, rot and deterioration – all of which are expensive to fix.

Intake vents allow air to come into your attic. The main idea is to create air flow; they allow cooler air to enter and force the warm, damp air out.

Vents

Vents allow your roof to do the tough job of protecting your home. When vents are installed improperly, or when they’re damaged or no longer working, they trap super-heated air in your attic – and that can spell disaster. Hot air needs a way out or it’ll damage your rafters and ruin your roof from the inside out. 

Vents help with moisture retention, too, by letting damp air escape and keeping good air flow through the attic. If moisture builds up in your attic, you may notice a damp, musty smell, mold growth, or even slow water damage.

A properly installed roof ventilation system can help reduce your energy costs, prevent ice damming on your roof (which causes even further damage), and helps keep the temperature inside your home stable.
