If you are in need of eaves trough and rain gutter repairs,
Far West Roofing, Inc. offers an affordable eaves rain gutter repair service from providing seam repairs, replacing sections of damaged gutters, and repairing supports.
The most common problem with eaves troughs is keeping them clean and free of leaves and debris. However, sometimes the problems require repair. Frequently gutter end caps, mitered corners, or other parts of seamed gutter sections will leak. Sometimes a gutter is hanging off or the leaders and sections of the leader assembly will become loose, dislodged, or completely fall off, requiring them to be re-hung, repaired or replaced altogether.
Repairs are often needed to keep your rain gutters in proper working order. Don’t let rain gutter repairs go unresolved since degraded or missing guttering can cause serious damage by allowing water to get into your basement and crawl spaces. Water will ruin fascia boards and siding and can cause foundation problems.
Our Ogden Roofing Company can help with the following common rain gutter repairs:
RE-HANGING AND RE-NAILING RAIN GUTTERS:
We Repair loose eaves troughs that have become overloaded by debris or nails working loose from the fascia board.
Gutter re-attachment can be as minor as replacing gutter nails and substituting hangers. However, the fascia may be rotting causing the gutter nails or hangers to be loose. In this case we will need to remove the guttering, install new fascia, cap the fascia with aluminum and re-install the gutter.
REPAIRING OR REPLACING DAMAGED DOWNSPOUTS:
Sometimes Downspouts have been loosened or blown down from high winds and storm damage. Downspouts are the vertical pipes that join to the horizontal gutter running to the ground. Downspouts collect the draining water and direct it away from the foundation. Downspouts may break loose or disconnect from the gutter outlet or between sections. When damaged they should be repaired quickly to avoid extensive damage to the foundation. We will Repair, refasten and anchor them as necessary. We can also install ELBOWS at the bottom of the Downspout and Install an EXTENSION to the bottom elbow. Extended spouts allow for better drainage and will channel the water off your roof and away from your home, preventing water from pooling near the base of your home.
ADD AND REPLACE EXTRA PARTS WHERE NEEDED:
Our Gutter Repair Experts can replace damaged elbows and cross sections of leaders and can add LEADER EXTENSIONS to ensure water moves away from foundation areas. We can replace the LEADER HEAD, which is the box-like head of the Downspout connected to the gutter. Our Gutter Repair technicians can also install extra parts including end caps, outlets and straps or they can add more support to the entire gutter system ensuring that the eaves troughs and leaders are properly anchored. We are able to install or replace the L shaped heavy duty piece of metal called a DRIP EDGE that goes up under the shingles and down into the gutter to prevent squirrels and other animals from getting into the attic.
IMPROPERLY PITCHED RAIN GUTTERS:
Standing water or water pooling in eaves troughs is usually the result of improperly installed eaves troughs that don’t pitch enough so that the water flows towards the downspouts. It can also be the result of sagging eaves troughs.
Our Rain gutter Repair technicians will check the slope and adjust and re-pitch the eaves troughs properly because improper drainage due to poor pitch is one of the biggest causes of roof drainage problems.
SEAL LEAKING SEAMS:
Re-sealing gutter seams is one of the most common Gutter Repairs. Leaking seams can occur when the caulking deteriorates because of UV sunlight damage, from excess debris in the eaves troughs or from ice buildup or ice dams. We will clean and sand the area and apply gutter sealant. You may also experience leaks around the downspouts and/or the joints of sectional guttering. This is generally caused by poorly fitted connections. Our crew will reconnect if possible and caulk with a high grade of silicone caulk.
FASCIA BOARD AND SOFFIT REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT:
An improperly functioning gutter and leader system can contribute to water and ice backing up against fascias, causing damage to the fascia boards and soffits. Fascia board is a flat board that is nailed to the end of the rafters, above the roof edge. The fascia encloses the roof overhang under the eave that runs along the roof edge. The eaves troughs are attached to the fascia board.
From the ground up it may appear that the fascia boards and soffits just need a new coat of paint but sometimes the weight of the eaves troughs or debris can cause the nails to eventually pull out. The gutter can tilt and cause an open space between itself and the fascia board. Water then goes down the fascia board and spreads along the soffit. Water will not only damage the fascia board it can also fall along the foundation or spread into the ceiling. Upon close inspection of the wood it will become obvious that it’s beyond repair and needs to be replaced.
Our Gutter Repair Specialists
will pry off the fascia board along the eave and clean out any debris behind it. They will remove the flashing and replace any under-soffit plywood. Any rotting, spongy, brittle or crumbling boards are removed. New flashing, fascia boards and soffit vents are then installed.
Soffit vents are the rectangular vents on the underside of the soffit. They are usually made of vinyl or aluminum and they are covered with a nylon mesh or netting to prevent bees, rodents, etc. from taking up residence in your attic. Neglected soffits can be a haven for small animals, insects, and rot that can create problems in the overall structure of the house.
We offer a variety of soffit types including plywood, vinyl, or aluminum or we can match the old soffit with tongue-and-groove beaded board. Dominion Roofing. can replace existing materials to protect your home from the elements or we can transform your home with new fascias and soffits to improve its appearance and value.

NEW AND REPLACEMENT EAVES TROUGH & GUTTERING INSTALLATION
Guttering is an under-appreciated component of any roof, as it protects your home’s foundation from water damage. The goal of a rain gutter is to ensure that all water is directed to drain away from the house, which doesn’t occur naturally.
There are different types of rain gutters that are suitable for both the unique needs, and the aesthetics of each individual home. An experienced roofer can help you to assess which is the most appropriate style from both of these perspectives, with the options including:
- Box Gutters – these Gutters are popular for those that want to hide the appearance of the drainage system so that it blends with the overall appearance of the home. Because this type of guttering sits so close to the home, an emergency overflow system must also be installed to ensure that any access water doesn’t flow into the roof of the house. This style of rain gutter is typically made from higher quality materials, such as stainless steel.
- Fascia Gutters – this is a common type of rain gutter that is Installed directly onto the rafters off the roof. Different styles, materials and colors are available with this type of rain gutter.
- Quad Gutters – these are especially popular for newer homes. The shape is appealing to many homeowners, and many of the versions also have overflow slots to provide for proper water drainage.
- Round Gutters – these look like a semi-circle (although sometimes they have a straight back). They deal well with high volumes of water, and are less likely to become clogged with debris.
In addition to the various styles of Rain Gutters, they come in a variety of materials.
Rain Gutter Materials:
- Galvanized Steel
- Pre-finished steel
Rain Gutters are also available in the slotted or un-slotted varieties, and come in various colors. Some Rain Gutter styles perform better when constructed with specific materials, and as a result, are only available in that format.
A variety of factors should be considered when choosing the correct eaves troughs for your home – including, the shape of your roof, and the weather in your area. Your Rain Gutters are your first line of defense against basement Leaks, but most people don’t give this a second thought – until water drainage isn’t being properly Maintained anymore!
