Fascias, Soffits & Gutters
Fascias, soffits and gutters play a vitally important role in the weatherproofing of your property, as well as adding a decorative finishing touch that gives your home its curb appeal.
However, because all three of these key features are so unprotected, they are susceptible to a number of problems. Fascias are designed to protect the edge of your roof, shielding the wooden board against weather and water damage that would likely occur otherwise. But this means that they are constantly exposed to the elements, and will eventually suffer moisture damage themselves.
“Fascias, soffits and gutters play a vitally important role in the weatherproofing of your property”
The wood that composes a soffit often attracts insects and small animals to nest, causing cracks, holes and even wood rot. If the soffits are not adequately ventilated, the risk of decay is increased due to the build-up of condensation in the roof void.
Guttering is designed to transport rainwater away from the building and to the drains. But a build-up of water, ice damming, and the debris from trees and surrounding buildings can quite easily block up a gutter, causing a domino effect of damage to other parts of your house.
It’s rare that one of these features requires repair without the others. For example, if the roof drip edge becomes damaged or does not work correctly, water will not be directed into the gutters as it should, instead attacking and rotting the fascia board and then further damaging the soffit once it has broken through.
