Worked on more hidden gutter repairs today out in Coquitlam. It’s easily got to be 95% of the EPDM rubber gutters out there in the Lower Mainland area that are not done according to today’s accepted standards. The unfortunate aspect of this is that rarely does a home owner recognize this until it is usually too late and some damage has already occurred. I’m talking about rotted fascia boards or damaged soffits. When a roof leak happens over occupied living space, we normally find out by seeing a water stain on the ceiling or by wetness on the floor. Because the leaks occurring in gutters do not happen over living space and is out of every day view, they can understandably be missed. If you have hidden membrane gutters on your house I recommend you go out and look at your soffits and fascia boards during the next two day rain and see if any water is dripping through the soffit or off the backside of the fascia. It may save you money!
