The roofing system is the largest part of a home. Different parts consist your roof and work together to protect your family against the elements. In this post, we will focus on the role of a roofing component called the drip edge – an installed lip that keeps shingles up off the deck at edges, and extends shingles out over eaves and gutters.
The Benefits of Drip Edges
Drip edges are installed in your Canton roofing to effectively protect your home against the effects of harsh weather, by:
1. Keeping water away from the home structure.
Rainwater is controlled if you have drip edges installed to your shingled roofs and can be directed well away from your home.
2. Avoiding water damage to home.
We all know that moisture causes rotting and other complicated problems for our homes. Having drip edges can help minimize or avoid this because it adds waterproofing properties to your roof.
3. Providing additional cover for small gaps.
Between the fascia and the roof deck, gaps may be seen by small animals as an opening to chew their way into your attic. Furthermore, water may enter these gaps and damage underlying materials. Drip edges reduce these risks.
