Reasons to maintain your home’s roofline
Like many people you probably don’t know what fascias and soffits are or what purpose they serve.
What you need to know is that they are not just a cosmetic trim to your roof but actually protect your roof structure from the weather and once they’re damaged they can cause the elements to penetrate, compromising both the energy efficiency of your home and potentially leading to rot damage to the roof’s rafters.
The cost of new fascias, soffits and guttering now, will be a fraction of the cost of a new roof later.
Chances are if your property is more than 10 years old the roofline is made of timber which means annual maintenance to ensure its fit for purpose. Replace this timber roofline with uPVC and it will be maintenance free.
So replacing old timber roofline will not only eliminate the need for maintenance it may also save you £1,000s in the long term by protecting your property from the weather.
Here at Trent Valley we offer top quality roofline products in a range of colours and finishes that are fitted by experienced specialist teams, we’re so sure of the quality of the installation we offer a 10 year workmanship guarantee.
A note of caution when looking at quotes for roofline, some low cost quotes may be to place a uPVC skin around the existing timber, this will improve the cosmetics of your home but won’t resolve the underlying issue of rotten timber, in fact a plastic casing will cause the timber and potentially the roof rafter to sweat causing additional unseen damage. Roof voids must be ventilated in order to stop warm air condensing encouraging rot & mould growth. All Trent Valley roofline is ventilated using an over fascia ventilator including a bird comb system to avoid any unwanted visitors.
