Chelmsford Roofline Ltd is an Essex company keeping homes warm from the top down. While double glazing, good quality exterior doors and loft insulation have long been used to reduce heating bills, there are other measures that can be taken to protect your home from the cold British climate.
In a new article on the partner pages of the Warm Edge Unit website, Chelmsford Roofline give an overview the practical steps that can be taken to keep the wind and rain out.
Fascias and soffits work in combination to seal the gap between the walls of the house and the roof. The fascia is the part that looks like a skirting board running round the top of the house. The fascia protects the roof space from rain, preventing water getting into roof beams and joists. The soffit sits under the fascia, excluding drafts but regulating ventilation to the loft areas. Traditionally fascias and soffits were made from wood but timber products need regular maintenance – including the need to be repainted every five or six years. Modern fascias and soffits are made from advanced PVCu’s that have been developed not to crack, warp or shrink. PVCu fascias and soffits – installed by a reputable company like Chelmsford Roofline Ltd – are maintenance free and will protect the home for many years.
Chelmsford Roofline fit fascias and soffits in great choice of colours – with bargeboards and boxboards to match. They are experts at fitting new and replacement guttering, available in complementary colours or with a cast iron effect finish. High capacity guttering requires fewer downpipes, improving the appearance of the home while protecting from damp and water damage.
