Fascias and Soffits - Roofer Lancaster
Fascias and soffits act as a barrier between your roof and the harmful elements from outside. They prevent water from gaining access and stop the spread of mold and water damage. The main functions of fascia boards is to support the bottom row of tile and provide an easy fixing point for guttering fitted vertically parallel to the wall of the house. The soffit is fitted horizontally from the bottom of the fascia to the wall of the house. They protect the roof rafters, which protrude over the walls from damp and mold and provide an aesthetic finish between roof and wall. If you would like to make your home warmer, drier and more attractive on the eye be sure to book our fascias and soffits fitting today. Head over to the contact us page for more information.

Guttering, box end and bargeboards
if you are having your soffits and fascias replaced it may also provide an opportunity to update your guttering, box end and bargeboard at the same time. The box end finishes off the soffit and fascia at the cable end of the house and the bargeboards perform a similar function where the roof meets the wall. If your gutter system is run down and old it can really depreciate the aesthetic of your property. This can put off neighbors and even deter potential buyers from paying attention to your property - especially if there are any visible leaks or drips. This can result in your property losing its value and causing other damage to your home or other outside item which is being subjected to unusually high levels of water contact. The fascias and soffits that we install will greatly improve your home’s kerb appeal along with new guttering, box ends and bargeboards. This will restore your home's value and develop your property into what you always dreamed it could be. A quality gutter system leads to a complete and pleasing aesthetic that makes a lasting impression.
Makes Home More Efficient
Making your home energy efficient is very beneficial to you for a range of reasons. It makes your home more affordable to run, it also will greatly reduce your carbon footprint and impact on the eco-system. If your fascias and soffits are damaged they won't be able to keep the heat in or the cold out. This means that you will be paying a lot more for your heating bills and you will be using a lot more unnecessary energy to keep your home warm. As well as the increasing fuel bill this is has a knock on effect to the eco-system. High quality fascias, soffits and gutter systems will prevent you from being hit with sky high heating bills.
Protect Your Home from the Elements
One of the main reasons that fascias and soffits are fitted on to buildings is to keep the elements out of your home. This is especially true for the winter months as the temperature drops and the weather worsens. If you have damaged fascias and soffits on your property they will not provide adequate protection against the outside world. This means that rain and cold will be able to enter your home and cause damage to your roof rafters. To protect your home from the elements in the cold winter months be sure to maintain your fascias and soffits.
