We know our roofs need them, we also know that without them our homes are at risk of damage, but when it comes to the soffits and fascias, do you understand the reasons behind why they are so crucial? If not, then we at Cotswold Rainwater are here to make things a little clearer and ensure your roofs are solid throughout the year.
The elements are particularly harsh this time of year, but even in the summer months your home needs to be kept free from rain and wind. Soffits and fascias protect the roofline against the weather and remove the collection of water that can gather after a heavy downpour. They not only protect the outside of your property, but prevent water from seeping within the brickwork and causing damp.
There are many different ways to ensure that the appearance of your home remains in top condition and fascias are the perfect example of a small change that can make a big difference. Available in various materials, they are durable and strong, and not only match the colours of your guttering and/or windows; they are easily maintained, giving you one less thing to worry about.
Whether you are looking to save money now or in the future, having correctly fitted soffits and fascias will ensure that there are no structural mishaps with your roof that will cost you the earth. Tying in with the protection point, by investing in a roofer that can offer the best service for your needs, you will save money in the long run.
So, we hope this has allowed you to see the purpose of soffits and fascias within your roof and what they offer for your home. If you wish to enquire about any of our services, please don’t hesitate to call us directly or fill in our contact form.
