Roofers in Charlotte understand the importance of gutters and a roofing drip edge system. A drip edge system on a roof increases the life span of the roof by years. The drip edge on a roofing system prevents two major issues that are common in Charlotte NC.
Water damaged roof decking and rodents getting into the attic. When a roof replacement happens, it is very common to find dry rotted plywood near the gutters, near the fascia. This is because water has access to the plywood through the drip-off the asphalt shingles. Rodents have sharp teeth and can easily bite through wood, but that’s not the case for metal. The drip edge system is metal which will prolong the life of the roof -with a proper roofing drip edge system.
Roofing in Charlotte NC will continue to have work for years to come due to bad installation by roofing contractors and normally once a year strong storm systems that pass by. Most roofing contractors in Charlotte NC know that having a proper roofing installation will extend the life of a roof and the belongings inside it. Step flashing has a 1,2,1 pattern that needs to be followed to ensure that all the water stays out of the home. When step flashing is not installed properly, attics will get leaks that will be visible inside the home on the ceiling. A properly installed roof flashing system is important for every home in Charlotte NC.
As jelly is to peanut butter, roofing is to gutters. The gutter system can both be a good feature when installing properly, or an aggravation to a homeowner when not installed properly. The purpose of the gutters is to direct rainwater away from the foundation of the home. If someone installs a gutter system not correctly, it will damage the soffit vents, the fascia, and even the attic space. To avoid these issues, make sure that the roofing company that is installing the gutters has a good installation track record.
