  1. Roofing/Siding
    We recently had work done on our garage roof (ice and water shield installed, new shingles...), new, seamless gutters with Leaf Relief gutter guards, and other more minor work. The contractor had worked up an estimate on the spot using Xactimate. Only later did we realize how much he had...
  2. Roofing/Siding
    We're having to repaint some weathered fascia. I've bought the sander and am ready to paint, but my dad said that unless we get a drip edge installed here, it will just happen again. But everything I see online about installing drip edges seem to be geared toward shingle roofs. Looking at the...
  3. Roofing/Siding
    My 1930s bungalow has a hip roof without an overhang. New shingles installed 3 years ago with a drip edge. Water is leaking (I think) from behind the aluminum fascia, down the inside of the wall and dripping off my sill plate into my basement. On this site someone recommended a gutter apron...
  4. Roofing/Siding
    We live in Cleveland Ohio, and we have a 13x11 feet sunroom that was leaking slightly when we bought the house (7/2009). So far we spent a fair amount of money trying to fix it (2 'professional' roofers) and the leaking has significantly decreased but we still notice 1 or 2 water dops hanging...
  5. Building & Construction
    I'd like to snap my fingers (or even pay someone to snap theirs) and have all of my water / moisture problems magically disappear. But that's not going to happen. This is my first post, so please excuse me if I've categorized it improperly. Here's a little info... I have a 75-80 year old...
  6. Roofing/Siding
    Hi, all. I'm new here...trying to be proactive about getting the project right. I need a new roof (the old sheathing is moldy and I want it gone, not just "remediated"). The house was built in 1995. I've been doing much research online and have pretty much decided that, given that I'm in the...
  7. Painting
    I have some metal gutters that were painted 10-15 years ago, and the paint isn't peeling at all. I am painting the rest of my house, and I am wondering if I should paint my gutters too while I am at it. What will make the paint job on my gutters last the longest? Leaving them as is, or...
  8. Roofing/Siding
    I need to install gutters on my house to alleviate potential foundation problems and am looking for some advice. The fascia on my house is slanted--it is perpendicular to the roof instead of the ground. I'm pretty sure that it would be a less-than-ideal thing for me to install gutters flush to...
  9. Roofing/Siding
    A roofer is doing a tear off/replace of my roof. I am keeping the gutters. The existing gutter apron, AKA the Drip Edge Flashing, is over the first layer of shingles. He plans to leave the gutters in place and work around them for the tear off and when laying ice & water shield and the asphalt...
