The Challenge

The Client approached Mr. Roof Repair because the eavestrough on their rental home had begun to pull away from the fascia.

The Solution

Upon inspection, Mr. Roof Repairs Roofing Specialist (RS) Team confirmed that there was a section of eavestrough that was hanging loose and some other areas had begun to pull away as well. This was because the older style spike fasteners had started to come loose. There was also debris and vines present in the trough.

It was recommended that the eavestroughs be replaced, or at the very least cleaned out and re-secured using hidden brackets.

During the assessment of the roofing system, it was also found that there were some exhaust vents that were installed too low from the ridge of the roof. When this occurs, the exhaust vents end up becoming intake vents which causes disruption through the entire ventilation system. A box vent was also used as a bathroom vent.

Additionally, it was noted that the chimney flashings were reused when the roof was redone and they were in very poor condition. This could result in leaks if not addressed accordingly.

A quote was provided to correct the above issues. The Client accepted the quote to re-secure the eavestrough, work then commenced.
