06 Jan Good Reasons To Invest in a new roofline
When it comes to upgrading your home, plenty of people think about the windows and doors, maybe even adding a conservatory, but rooflines tend to fall to the wayside. Well, we’ve got some very good reasons for investing in a new roofline, so read on to discover more.
What is a roofline?
Simply put, a “roofline” is the umbrella term to describe the fittings on the eaves and ends of your roof, separately known as fascias, soffits, bargeboards, verges, guttering and cladding. And you can see why – taken all together, these various pieces should form a neat border – or line – around the roof of your home.
Why is your roofline important?
A well-maintained, properly installed roofline will help your home to remain weatherproof, preventing issues such as damp, mould, rot and draughts. However, many traditional rooflines are made using timber which, left uncared for, can become porous and start to decay. Ultimately, this doesn’t just look unsightly – it can also lead to extensive damage being done to the underlying structure of the property.
Improve the appearance of your home
A fresh, clean roofline can make a huge difference to the way your home looks. We offer a complete, high performance UPVC roofline system that will give your property a fresh, neat appearance. We can also replace the cladding on the front of your home, swapping discoloured, rotten timber for bright, maintenance-free UPVC that will look wonderful for years to come.
Boost your property’s value
Replacing your roofline is a great idea if your property is looking a little tired – even more so if you’re looking to sell your house. While you could simply give the original timber roofline on your home a fresh lick of paint, this will only partially cover any areas in need of repair – a careful buyer viewing your home may well be looking out for any issues.
Replacing the roofline on your property is a relatively quick, simply and affordable way to reassure potential buyers that your home is in a good condition, and may well help you to attract more generous offers.
Protect your home from the elements
The roofline on a house is one of the most exposed areas there is. In bad weather – namely heavy rain, snow, sleet and hail – water runs down the roof and into the guttering.
If the guttering is in a poor state of repair, or other parts of the roofline are not adequately waterproofed, the wind can blow this water back up under the eaves before it has a chance to drain away, leading to water entering your home and causing damage within.
This can include rot in the timbers and underlying structure, damage to the plaster and paintwork, and even problems with the electrics – a roofline that’s lost its integrity can cause endless issues.
