Guttering on a property is designed to gather the rain water running from your roof, and channel it away from the building. Without guttering, the rain water would run down the walls and soak the brickwork, eventually, falling onto the ground close to the foot of the building. In the worst case scenario, this potentially could cause serious damage in the foundations.
Guttering left neglected can eventually become ineffective through the clogging with debris such as leaves, silt and twigs. If clogging within the guttering becomes too severe, resultant blockages are highly likely. Once water can no longer run freely along the gutter, the water will eventually overflow and leak out into the roof and/or down the walls. In addition to this, the weight of the debris, sludge and trapped water can cause the guttering to pull away from its mountings on the roof fascia boards. These repairs are very expensive, yet an inevitable result of neglected guttering.
Newer guttering is designed to be much lighter in contrast to the older style cast iron gutters and pipes. They are also designed to not require painting and will keep their good quality finish for many years to come. If these problems sound all too familiar to you and you would like to replace your guttering for the new style, then please contact us today 0800 191 0515
The roofline is the most vulnerable aspect of a building; it is constantly exposed to all kinds of weathers, resulting in such hazards as decaying timbers and rot. However, there is a solution that can not only eliminate expensive replacement timbers, but also the need for continuous repainting and maintenance. As part of our work, we remove all existing timber fascias and soffits, conduct any remedial work to rafter ends and install new UPVC fascias, soffits and guttering. It is our method that we do not overclad in any of our circumstances.
Using this technique, our fascias are able offer you the following advantages.
- Low maintenance
- Colourfast guarantee
- Long life span
- Improved overall appearance
- Easy to clean
- Will not rot, crack or peel
In addition to this, we also offer a fascia, soffit and gutter cleaning service. Please contact one of the team 0800 191 0515 to enquire.
Professional Fascias and Soffits Fitters
As mentioned, the roofline is one of the most vulnerable aspects of any building. This is especially relevant where timber is concerned. In many cases, accessing the roofs and flat roofs leads onto difficulties when it comes to roof inspections and important maintenance checks. Timbers are most prone to rot and decay quickly when they are neglected. If left unchecked, the results, both structurally and financially, can be severe. Our fascias, soffits and bargeboards can provide you with a simple, cost-effective and practical long-term solution. This is the ideal replacement for timber in your roofline.
Our technique is firstly to remove the old boards, cut back to the “sound” timber and rebuild from the healthy timbers. This gives a long lasting solution, expelling the need for painting. We can also fit “dry verge ends”, these will prevent your tiles from lifting on exposed gable ends.
