Island Gutters will make sure fascia boards and soffits provide a strong foundation for any new gutter installation or gutter replacement.
Island Gutters is a trusted name across Long Island. Our reputation is based on a dedication to quality: quality service and quality products. We carefully evaluate to the details of each home, and your project requirements. An important part of the installation of new gutters, the replacement of old gutters, and leaf protection systems is the requirements of the roof, siding, soffiting, fascia and capping.
In most cases, gutters are attached to what is known in the building trades as a "fascia board", or more commonly known as "trim". If these boards are badly weathered or rotted out, they must be replaces prior to the installation of new gutters. We recomend replacing the the boards and "capping" them with alumiminum trim coil (baked enamel finish) in your choice of color.
The underside of your eaves (structural overhangs) is the "soffit". Outdated wooden soffits require time-consuming maintenance. They usually don't provide adaquate ventilation in roof rafters. We recommend replacing your old soffits with all new technologically advanced, maintenance free Vented vinyl soffits.
Vinyl soffits add protection and can actually improve the appearance of your home and this type of soffit does not require time-consuming and costly maintenance. Well-designed and properly installed soffits help excess heat in your home to escape in the summer.
In the winter the air flow of properly working soffits helps reduce icicles and ice dams. Taking proper care of soffits is also important because small animals and insects can nest in them and become a nuisance or worse.
