Fascias, Soffits and Roofline Products in Chelmsford, Essex
July 1, 2013
A new article on the Multi Building Services partner pages from Essex friends and neighbours, Chelmsford Roofline Ltd, explains exactly what fascias and soffits are and when they should be replaced.
For those who do not know, fascias look a bit like skirting boards running around the top of a house wall. Soffits are the panels that join the top of the fascia to the roof. Bargeboards are the fittings that hang down from the eaves of the house and boxboards seal the gaps between bargeboard, soffit and fascia. The purpose of fascias, soffits, bargeboards and boxboards is to protect the roof of the building, and therefore the building itself, from wind, rain, sleet and snow.
As Multi Building Services can attest, in the wrong place water can do an awful lot of damage.
Traditionally roofline products have been made of wood for the sole reason that when most houses were built, PVCu fascias, soffits and bargeboards did not exist. Timber soffits and fascias work well as long as they are regularly maintained, treated and repainted – normally every 5 to 6 years. Without regular maintenance, timber roofline products will warp, crack and shrink and eventually let the water in.
Chelmsford Roofline Ltd install top quality PVCu fascias, soffits and bargeboards from Eurocell, the leading manufacturer of roofline products. Eurocell fascias and soffits come in a great range of colours – including natural wood effect finishes – and are guaranteed for 20 years. The fact is they will last much longer and will remain colourfast and maintenance free for years to come.
Chelmsford Roofline also replace and repair guttering and downpipes and have a wonderful line in attractive and functional weather cladding.
