Gutterhawk knows that there is more to a roof than just the shingles. We pride ourselves by using the finest and best products on the market. When we’re installing or repairing a roof for our clients, we are thinking of not just the shingles, but of all the crucial materials that go underneath that make a roof strong and durable.
One of the most important components to a roof is the decking. Decking plays a significant role in protecting your home because it’s the plywood that creates the structure for the shingles to be nailed to. Often when we talk about leaks or “soft spots” it is the decking that has sustained water damage which has led to rot. To prevent those soft spots and water damage from happening it’s important to keep your roof clean of debris, such as leaves and to have regular inspections of the roof. As a roofing specialist in the Tallahassee area we understand that leaves can build up on roofs fast. Gutterhawk is dedicated to offering maintenance plans that include roof and gutter clearing.
Another component to a roof is called the fascia. This is the topmost vertical roof edge. The fascia is the part of the roof that gutters are attached to. The role of the fascia is to prevent water from dripping off the roofline and damaging the rafters and trusses. This often is the part of the roof we see damaged when gutters are clogged with leaves and debris. Clogged gutters can have standing water in them that overflows onto the fascia, which leads to wood rot. Gutterhawk offers gutter maintenance plans for the Tallahassee community because we want to protect our client’s homes from this problem.
When Gutterhawk is trusted to build or repair your roof, we are thinking about all the components and material necessary for the job. We know it’s more than just a roof to you. It’s about protecting your home, your family and your investment. We value each client and personalize each job based on the customer’s needs and requests.
