UPVC plastics are very durable to weather, compared to some of the older materials used to protect your roofline such as timber. They are a cost effective yet successful way of protecting your roof, and preventing damp from entering your home. It also doesn’t require any maintenance from you, meaning you don’t have to spend time on it. It comes in two forms- flexible and rigid, the form we use for construction is the rigid form as it is much more effective and low maintenance.
Fascias boards installed by us here at Clark Roofing Ltd support the bottom edge of roof tiles, concealing and protecting the ends of the roof rafter; keeping birds and vermin out of your property. Our fascias also prevent weather damage to roofs and are available in a range of colours and styles. Not only do they look great, but they also stand the test of time. Signs that your fascias need replacing include:
- Soft patches in wood – this is an indication that rotting is starting to occur.
- Crackled, flaking paint, which is a general sign of age.
- Evidence of animals and rodents; mice, rats and squirrels can take up home in the smallest of openings and be a sign your roofline is deteriorating.
- Water in the roof void, which is proof that something is leaking.
- Evidence of condensation.
- Lack of ventilation.
If you notice any of these issues with your fascias, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today.
Here at Clark Roofing Ltd, our team are skilful and knowledgeable in all aspects of fitting and repairing soffits. Soffit serves both an aesthetic and functional purpose for a building’s roofing system; without it you would see your rafter beams fully exposed. However, if you cover it up with soffit, in the colour and style you like, you add instant character to your property.
Functionally speaking, “vented” soffits protect your rafters from all-weather elements and create that much-needed airflow. If your rafters are exposed in many areas, you’ll likely have mould built up and rotting beams that need to be replaced.
