Get Your Fascias And Soffits Installed For Winter
2020 has been a strange year for many reasons, but it is still important that you make the most of it and don’t let time slip by without taking care of the most important jobs. This may have been an irregular year with lengthy time off work, no holiday and the kids off school, but time stops for nothing; the seasons are changing just the same and the winter weather is still on the way.
This means that important structural jobs around the home are still very necessary and the Autumn months are the best time to be carrying these out before the harsh winter weather takes hold. This includes the replacement of fascias and soffits to make sure your home is structurally secure, is airtight and is weather-proofed for winter.
Benefits of new fascias and soffits
Fascias and soffits play a big part in the external appearance of the home, but they aren’t just there to provide some kerb appeal. Fascias and soffits play an important role in keeping your property structurally sound at all times. Traditional timber materials will rot and crack over time, even if you have inspected and maintained them regularly. It is easy to think your fascias and soffits don’t need inspecting every year, and it can be impractical to get ladders out and risk your safety every 12 months to give them a close inspection.
However, timber materials can deteriorate slowly and their poor condition is not always visible from the ground. This can lead to the ingress of bad weather, but also it opens your home to the possible ingress of insects or birds or plant life growing in some cases. This is why we would always recommend the installation of PVCue materials for your fascias and soffits. These are long-lasting and maintenance-free, meaning once they are installed, you need not touch them again – to inspect, paint or repair – for many years.
Our fascias and soffits products
At Northern Roofline we have NVQ-qualified installers and are members of our manufacturers, Kestrel BCE, registered installer scheme. This membership extends the standard guarantee to thirty five years on all white products and ten years on all Rosewood, Oak and Black products.
This long-lasting guarantee is possible because our PVCue materials contain no lead or tin-based stabilisers like many other products. We only use Calcium Zinc-based stabilisers in all our roofing products, and using these higher quality components makes sure that their colour appearance is retained over the long-term, and ensures they will not go brittle, split or warp, which is the case with many other lower quality products.
We all know how the harsh winter weather can eat away at roofing materials, and this kind of weather can settle in for the best part of six months, so act now and get our roofing experts lined up to secure your home over the winter period.
