Most people do not know they are having a problem with their roof, plumbing, and HVAC vents, skylights, until they see a water stain on their ceiling or water on their floor. Without climbing on your roof and doing your own inpection you will not know you have a problem until damage has been done. We can do a free roof inspection and let you know if there is a problem that needs addressed along with pictures and the best course of action to take.
If plastic roof vents were installed when your home was built, chances are the vents are cracked or warped from exposure to the elements and water is leaking into your attic which will eventually leak into the interior of our home. Most notice water damage on the ceiling inside their home before they have the roof vents checked. If you find one is leaking, it is a good bet the others are as well and should be replaced.
Any water damage to the insulation is evident once the roof vent is removed. The damaged roof vent in the picture was from continual exposure to heat and cold which made the plastic brittle. The holes were caused by hail. We have seen them so brittle that a squirrel that walked across one fell through and into the attic unable to escape.
Don't wait until water damage occurs to replace the plastic vents. Preventative maintenance is always the best choice.
Clogged gutters can cause roof, fascia, and soffit damage. Water can run down the outside of clogged gutter and downspouts causing siding damage as well. We can clean your gutters for you, and do any repairs needed to the gutters and downspouts.
There are a variety of products on the market that are designed to keep your gutters debris free, but from our experience we have found some better than others. If you would like a gutter guard installed we can do that for you.
The fascia is what our gutters are fastened to, and is the trim along your roof line. Fascia can become damaged from sun and rain over a period of time. The most common cause of fascia damage is gutters that haven't been cleaned properly allowing water to penetrate it. We can repair or replace damaged fascia.
The soffit is the area under the eaves (where your roof overhangs the house.) Water that has penetrated the roof material can work it's way down and settle in the soffit. This may go un-noticed until physical damage such as rotting or warping has occured.
We can removed damage soffit and replace it, and caulk and paint it as well.
After a period of time, the sealant used to keep rain away from the underlayment of the roof can crack and break away. The most common locations for this are skylights, plumbing or HVAC vents, and rangehood or bath fan vents. and where flashing has been damaged. The Maintenance Shop can repair these leaks for you.
The rubber boot around plumbing and HVAC vents deteriorate over time from being exposed to the elements. It is a especially common problem in the Treasure Valley because of the intense heat and cold fluctuations. Our friendly neighborhood squirrels are know to actually chew on the rubber as well. We can replace the vent boot assembly for you.
Skylights are another great source for leaks into your home. The seals around them can deteriorate with age and weather conditions. We can repair the leaks fairly easily without taking them apart if caught quickly, but can be taken apart and sealed if not.
We can repair all types of siding. Whether it is due to fire as in the picture above, water damage, dry rot, pet damage, etc., we can fix it for you as long as the siding is still available or we can find a close match. Once it is repaired we can paint it for you too.
