Calgary Roofing & Exterior Renovations
The exterior finish of your home is made up of some very essential components that protect your family and home from serious damage:
If any one of these six components fails to do its part in the water shedding system your home becomes vulnerable to water damage, moisture build-up, mold, and many other problems due to weather in Calgary. Exterior renovations then have to be done, and they must be done properly to ensure your home is protected.
Ensure Proper Calgary Exterior Renovations
Understanding how the components of your exterior work together will help you choose a contractor experienced with Calgary exteriors.
The components overlap each other so that they are constantly moving the water down and away from the house. Starting at the roof, water drains into the eavestroughs and the eavestroughs carry it away via the downspouts. The eavestroughs are attached to the fascia, which is protecting the wood framing underneath.
The soffit connects from the fascia to the outside wall of siding. Underneath the siding is the building envelope protecting the wood framing of the house. In high-quality exterior renovations, everything is designed and installed in sequence so that one component drains into the next to achieve perfect water shedding.
