SOFFIT & FASCIA
At Lansard Bros. Roofing (2006) Ltd. we understand the importance of properly ventilating your home to prevent expensive repairs due to damage from poor ventilation. Adding proper soffit ventilation along with proper roof vents, can increase comfort, reduce energy costs and decrease repair costs.
Although gutters and downspouts control the huge amount of rainwater and melting snow, there may still be a small amount of water penetration behind the gutters causing the roof edge and wood fascia board to get wet and rot. Installing prefinished aluminum soffits and fascia will prevent this and, with many colours to choose from, will give your home a new and distinctive look.
Another benefit to aluminum soffits and fascia is that you will never need to replace them because they cannot rust or rot away. They are the perfect way to keep your home maintenance-free, as you'll never have to paint them again.
Cladding the eaves of the house involves three factory-finished parts:
Soffit fits underneath the roof over-hang, and usually perforated to allow for attic ventilation. Roof vents or ridge vents are not enough to acquire proper ventilation. Air circulation inside the attic should have a complete cycle to prevent moisture inside the attic. Soffit ventilation completes its cycle and serves as the intake or outlet depending on the wind direction outside the house.
J-channel caps - a small trough-shape strip caps the edge of the soffit that sits along the wall, while holding the soffit up and making the area look good at the same time.
Fascia cladding covers the outer face of the roof over-hang. The bottom edge of the fascia is bent into an L-shape hooking over the soffit and holding it secure while making the transition joint look good.
Custom aluminum cladding is fabricated on site then installed to completely seal your wooden frames from the effects of weather and time. It will eliminate the need for you to paint or worry about your windows again. Your window and door frames need to be properly maintained year after year to stay looking great.
Until recently homeowners have only been presented with two options: Paint or replace. Window & door cladding is today's alternative to traditional exterior painting. It is available in up to 20 different colors.
Improper water drainage system around your home can cause extremely costly problems like:
cracks on your walls, floor and ceiling
stains on your siding or brick
rotten roof and fascia board
washed out flower beds
pitted concrete, etc.
Eavestrough (also known as rain gutter) is a component of a roof system, which collects and diverts rainwater. The purpose of the diversion is to prevent water from falling off the roof edges. Uncontrolled water can cause structural damage to the outside walls and the foundation of the building over time.
Lansard Bros. Roofing specializes in Seamless Eavestrough. This is a type of Eavestrough by which long lengths of gutter can be made on site and therefore avoiding seaming of sectional gutters. With a wide variety of color choices available to choose from we can match most color schemes or change the look of your home altogether. Consult our color charts.
We install 5 inch, “K” style Eavestrough. To browse the different styles, click here to view the PDF document.
Clogged gutters can cause water leakage into the house as the water backs up. This can also lead to stagnant water build up which allows mosquitoes to breed and can cause grasses and weeds to grow in the gutter. So if you're tired of cleaning the leaves out of your eavestroughs year after year we can offer you an option to equip your gutter with top quality Alu-rex leaf guards, which allow water from the roof to flow through, but block leaves and other debris from entering and building up in the gutter.
