If you own a house in Bristol, Cheltenham or elsewhere in the Gloucestershire or Avon areas, chances are it is fitted with a fascia board and soffit board. Most roofs in the UK have fascias and soffits as part of their roofline installation, to support guttering and the roof edge. Over time, their exposure to the British elements can leave them in a poor condition which leaves your property more vulnerable to water damage.
At Prestige Home Improvements, our trusted property maintenance experts can repair, replace and install durable fascias and soffits for homeowners across the South West. We provide prompt site surveys and no-obligation quotations at a time to suit your schedule.
Below, you will find further information about our local and professional roofline services.
The purpose of a fascia board is to protect the roof by providing a barrier between the roof edge and the outdoor elements, water in particular. Fascias provide protection for the interior of your home by helping to block water from entering the roof rafters and causing issues with mould, damp or water damage inside your property. Fascias can be identified as the long boards fitted below the lower edge of your roof. As well their practical use, well-maintained fascias can be visually appealing on any Bristol or Cheltenham house.
Moisture is the number one enemy to fascias as many are made from timber and so are vulnerable to rot. Cleaning and checking them regularly will make sure problems are spotted early on. Look for signs of sagging, holes, rotting wood or internal water stains and contact our company immediately if you spot an issue. We will be with you promptly.
The soffit board is another important architectural feature of a building’s roofline. Derived from the Latin word suffigere, meaning ‘to fix underneath’, roofline soffits sit on the underside of a roof eave or below fascias. They are what you see when looking up to the roof from ground level. Soffits are generally ventilated, with small holes in them to promote air circulation through the roofing structure, drawing heat and moisture out of the property.
As with fascias, soffits on properties in Bristol, Cheltenham and throughout the South West, are vital for protecting your home. If not properly maintained, soffits can decrease the aesthetic appeal of your property and form cracks, holes or start to rot. Soffits also provide an attractive space for small animals and insects to settle in if left unattended. Call our team today for soffit maintenance, repairs or replacements.
At Prestige Home Improvements, we choose uPVC as our preferred material for fascias and soffits. Unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) is used extensively across construction because it is a very durable and water-resistant material. The main benefits are listed here.
Advantages of uPVC:
• Require no regular maintenance or painting
• Extremely durable and hardwearing
• Enhances a home’s aesthetic appeal
• More cost-effective than aluminium or timber
• Comes in a wide range of colours and styles
• Non-corrosive and resistant against harsh weather
• Long lifespan - up to 40 years if properly maintained
• Easy to clean with nothing more than soapy water
