Importance of a professional roofline

There are three additional parts to a traditional roofing system that help tie everything together, help prolong the life of the roof, ultimately the building itself and also add   to visual appeal.
Soffits, Fascias and guttering all play a crucial role when     it comes to protecting your home, acting as a barrier to prevent moisture from penetrating your roof, leading to    rot and decay.

 

What Are Fascia's?

The fascia is mounted at the point where the roof meets the   outer walls of the house. This is often referred to as the ROOF-LINE. Most people refer to it by the name of the main board      that carries the gutter - the fascia. Not many people are actually familiar with these terms, so here are a few words to help familiarise yourself.

The fascia board is the long, straight board that runs along the lower edge of the roof. The fascia is fixed directly to the roof trusses and usually does all the work of supporting the bottom row of tiles and carrying all the guttering. This is no mean feat, especially when it is raining hard. In a downpour the roof of a 3-bed semi could be washing several gallons of water per second into its gutters.

 

Old, damaged or incorrect fascia installation may cause these problems

  • Cracked, Damaged or poorly maintained fascia boards can cause warm air to escape from your property leading to a high rise in energy consumption.
  • Rain water can leak into gaps or cracks in your fascia boards causing a huge amount of damage to the roof. Damp and condensation can be easily over looked for a long period of time, which in turn can lead to extensive and costly repairs or replacement needed to your roof.
  • Gaps in your fascia board are a invitation for Rodents and birds to enter your home to seek a warm environment from the cold wet weather. As they burrow in, this can cause a great amount of damage to your Fascia and soffits along with your attic and roof. which in turn leads to progressive problems, birds and bats are protected species so it is illegal to kill, injure or remove them without a specialist at the right time of year.
  • Rotten, broken roofline can be extremely unsightly.

 

Fascia boards come in a variety of colours to choose from

 

What Are Soffits?

Soffit serves both a aesthetic and functional purpose for a buildings roofing system. Its the skin that covers your eaves - without it, you would see your rafter beams fully exposed. Cover it up with the style and colour you desire to give your home a instant uplift.

Functionally speaking, soffit protects your rafters from the weather elements. If your rafters are exposed in any area you will likely have mould build up and rotting beams to replace which in turn can prove very costly. Plus mould in a home is never healthy.

Technically, a soffit is the underside of any element of a building. The word originates with the Latin suffigere, meaning "to fix underneath." So there are soffits on ceilings, stairs, and even cornices. The most common type, however, is found in the area under the eaves on the exterior of the house. The soffit extends from the side of the house to the edge of the eave and closes the space beneath the eave.

The soffit board is tucked away under the fascia board. It is usually the board that you see most of from street level. The soffit can be ventilated to allow the flow of air into the roof area. Alternatively, ventilation can be provided over the top of the fascia board. Many people prefer the latter solution these days. Without adequate ventilation, condensation will form in the roof void increasing the risk of timber decay.

BOTTOM LINE - you need to let your attic cycle the heat and moisture away from your building. Soffit is the most common and easy way to protect your roof frame and achieve air circulation to keep your building healthy.
