A well-functioning roof features many different elements working in harmony together to keep you safe, warm and dry. Two of these are fascias and soffits, which protect the roofline of properties around Brighton, Storrington and Sussex. And keeping them in fine fetter year-round is the commitment we’ve made as the areas’ favoured roofing company. We achieve this via both repair and the installation of soffit and fascia replacements.
My team and I recommend the use of uPVC fascias and soffits due to their durability, affordability and the fact they are immune to many of the issues suffered by older, timber fixtures e.g warping, rotting and splintering. So should you have problem-prone timber in place, we can supply high quality uPVC fascias and soffits to match your roof and property, and professionally install them to ensure perfect functionality.
Fascias and soffits are important components of the roofline of a building. The fascia is a long, straight board that runs along the lower edge of the roof, supporting the bottom row of tiles and guttering. The soffit is the board that runs horizontally underneath the fascia, providing a finished look and protecting the underside of the roof from the elements.
Together, the fascia and soffit help to protect the roof and the walls of the building from water damage, preventing moisture from seeping into the structure. They also help to improve the appearance of properties around Brighton and Storrington by creating a clean, finished look along the roofline. This is why some soffit and fascia replacements are handled less for raw utility, and more for the sake of kerb appeal and aesthetics.
In addition to their protective and aesthetic functions, fascias and soffits also play a role in ventilation. They allow air to circulate through the roof and attic, preventing moisture build-up and helping to regulate the temperature inside the building. This can help to prevent issues such as mould and mildew growth, and can also improve energy efficiency by reducing the need for air conditioning – which considering the way climate is trending, may be an increasingly normal feature in Brighton and Storrington homes.
Consider investing in soffit and fascia replacements if you notice signs of damage or wear and tear. This might take the form of rot, cracks, holes or discoloration. You may also want to consider soffit and fascia replacements if you are experiencing issues with water damage or pests entering your home through the roofline.
If your soffit and fascia are made from wood and have not been replaced in several years, it may be a good idea to have them inspected to ensure they are still in good condition. Looking to improve the energy efficiency or appearance of a property in Brighton, Storrington or elsewhere in Sussex? Replacing your soffit and fascia with newer, more modern materials may be a good option, so give us a call to arrange a survey and consultation.
