Acute Roofing, a UK-based roofing service provider that is proficiently installing durable, cost-effective, and visually appealing roofs on properties throughout West London and Surrey, launches its highly anticipated services; UPVC Soffit and Fascia Installation. Soffit and fascias make the edges of your roof look smart and attractive, but they also do a lot more. They are essential to your property’s ability to efficiently drain rainwater away, and keep your roof moisture-free and well-ventilated. Also, it is important to ensure that your soffits and fascias are in good condition and damage-free.
The soffit is in charge of covering up your roofing rafters and giving the edges of your roof a presentable and clean appearance. Also, the soffit is ventilated to maximize airflow into the roof. Soffits are usually made of wood. UPVC soffits are durable and can manage well with exposure to moisture. Wooden soffits are a well-liked feature, but they are more likely to decay and rot quickly, threatening the integrity of the rest of the roof structure.
Fascias are commonly a softwood board which is placed to the exposed edges of your rafters, however, in more recent years, this has been replaced with high-grade UPVC as softwood has the tendency to decay and rot. Fascias’ purpose is to protect and seal the roof and the interior of your property from exposure of the different weathers, to provide support for the guttering, and to support roof tiles at an overhang level. Fascias also serve a cosmetic purpose and are much better looking than exposed rafters.
Improperly installed soffits and fascias, or ones that are worn out, must be replaced to protect the integrity of your roof further. Common signs of damaged soffits and fascias include:
- Rot and damp – sections of rot and damp on your roofline are likely to spread quickly and can cause significant damage.
- Leaking gutters – gutters can easily develop leaks if they are not frequently maintained. Different debris like leaves can clog up gutters, and during the colder months, pools of water freeze and expand, damaging the gutter.
- Asbestos – Asbestos was used as a fire retardant, but it is a dangerous substance, and prolonged exposure to asbestos fibres can cause serious lung problems.
- Infestations – many pests make their home small damp spaces, and rotting fascias can be home to many kinds of insects and rodents.
The cost of soffits and fascias will depend on the size of your property and the quality of products that you choose. One thing you can be confident of is that installing soffits and fascias will reinforce protection in your home and make it far more appealing.
