Pay Attention To Your Fascias And Soffits This Winter
Winter weather can be damaging to your home if it is not well protected. In extreme cases you can have strong winds knocking slates off your roof and loosening guttering, and the weight of heavy snow can damage anything that has deteriorated in condition or isn’t firmly secured. But even average winter weather has the ability to bite you when you least expect it.
The regular and repeated downfall of rain can saturate and rot materials traditionally used for roofing structures, and cold and ice can also make materials brittle and damage structures slowly and without you noticing. This means that a roofing design that looked fine in September and October might not look so great when you have another close inspection in the following March or April.
The benefits of fascias and soffits
A critical element of a domestic roofing design is fascias and soffits. They combine to provide a good, solid integrity to a home by creating a secure barrier against the ingress of weather. Of course this is absolutely critical to the safety and security of your home and its content and structure.
But fascias and soffits also protect your home from birdlife and insect life finding access to roof voids and areas that you can’t see or hear them. In many ways this can become just as damaging as the winter weather.
Aesthetic importance of fascias and soffits
So fascias and soffits play an important practical role in protecting your home, but at the same time they need to look attractive because they are a very visible feature of the property. Kerb appeal is very important to a homeowner, and particularly if you are attempting to sell the property. But first and foremost you want your home to look neat and appealing, and fascias and soffits are central elements which act to frame the external visage of a home.
Our PVCu materials are long-lasting and durable, and won’t deteriorate in the face of damaging winter weather like older, more traditional timber materials would. This means you can be sure that they will retain their integrity and their strong protective qualities, but also that they will retain their colour and won’t need repairing or re-painting each year. This can be a difficult and potentially dangerous job, so anything that reduces the inspection and maintenance required on your fascias and soffits has to be a good thing, and so the PVCu materials supplied by Northern Roofline might be the answer you are looking for!
