Rainwater Channeling Behind the Gutter
Improper installation or deterioration of fascias, gutters and the roofing membrane can result in water seeping between the gutter and the fascia board, leading to water channeling behind the gutter instead of flowing into it.
This problem can occur when the membrane, which is a waterproof barrier installed between the roofing material and the gutter, is not properly installed or has deteriorated over time.
Water channeling behind the gutter can cause rotting of the fascia board, damage to the roof structure, or even leaks inside the house.
Repairing this issue often involves inspecting and repairing the roofing membrane, ensuring proper installation of flashing, and redirecting the water flow back into the gutter.
It may also include replacing damaged fascia boards or addressing any underlying roofing issues.
If you notice water channeling behind your gutter, it’s important to address it promptly to prevent further damage.
Hiring a professional roofer or gutter repair service can help assess the situation accurately and provide the necessary repairs or replacements to ensure proper water drainage and protection for your home.
