What are Fascia, soffits and guttering…? Or Roofline?
Not many people are familiar with these terms. So let’s get rid of the jargon!
Your roofline is made up of…
Fascia – Fascia boards cover the ends of the rafters outside the building
and is often used to hold the gutter. The fascia plays an important role in protecting
the roof space and rafters from the elements. The roof space can be ventilated using
over fascia vents to limit the build-up of condensation and decay to the roofline,
which then reduces future maintenance costs.
Soffit – Soffits are fitted horizontally underneath fascia boards. They
support the fascia board and create a boxing around the roofline as protection and
add a very aesthetically pleasing finish to your home.
Rainwater Gutter – You usually don’t think about them until they start
leaking! But the simple fact is that your gutters are an essential part of your
roofing system. Guttering is commonly made from high quality, water resistant materials
such as Stainless steel, Aluminium and PVC. It also comes in a range of colours
and designs so that you can choose the one that best suits your roof and the trims
of your home.
Bargeboard / Box End
This is where the main roofline meets the gable end of your home. A box end is created
to finish the corners. It’s this part alone that can make or break the quality of
the installation. Poor workmanship and the incorrect sizing of materials can ruin
the whole installation.
What is Cladding?
External cladding can completely transform your home and when it comes to painting
your tired and rotten timber cladding offers you a great cost effective alternative
that will never need painting. It can also be used to replace old hanging tiles
that have become dated and weathered. Designs can be horizontal, vertical, diagonal…it’s
really up to you on how you want your home to look.
