Chelmsford Roofline Ltd
Weatherproof Your Home With New Fascias, Soffits, Guttering
There are many ways to keep your home warm this winter. The value of good quality double glazing is well known, as is the importance of draught free doors and effective loft insulation. But there is one trick many home owners miss when it comes to protecting the home and keeping the fuel bills down.
Chelmsford Roofline Ltd supply and install new and replacement soffits, fascias and gutters as well as bargeboards, weatherboards and cladding. Roofline products keep the wind and the rain out, protecting the roof space, joists and gable ends.
A Homeowner’s Guide to Roofline Products
One of the reasons roofline products are often overlooked when it comes to home insulation is that many people don’t know what they are, what they are called, or what they do.
- Fascias – The fascia looks like a skirting board running around the top of the exterior wall. Fascias protect the roof space from rain, wind, sleet and snow.
- Soffits – Soffits run at right angles under the fascia. They fill the gap between the fascia and the roof. Soffits are usually fitted with air vents to provide ventilation to the roof space and loft.
- Guttering and Downpipes – Guttering and downpipes clear excess water away from the roof and walls. Leaking and damaged guttering and downpipes allow water to seep into brickwork and mortar.
- Bargeboards – Bargeboards are fitted under the eaves and protect the roof rafters at the gable end of a building.
- Boxboards – Boxboards form a weatherproof seal between fascias, soffits and bargeboards.
- Weatherboard – weatherboard cladding is both a practical and a decorative feature that protects exposed brickwork and timber from the elements.
Soffits & Fascias in Essex
Originally fascias, soffits and bargeboards were made of wood. Timber roofline products work well as long as they are well-maintained. Typically, timber fascias and soffits need to be re-painted or treated every five or six years to prevent rot and weather damage. This can be expensive, time consuming and is potentially dangerous, which is one of the reasons it is often overlooked on home maintenance schedules.
Chelmsford Roofline installs Modern PVCu fascias and soffits that are maintenance-free and built to last.
Eurocell fascias and soffits installed by Chelmsford Roofline have a 20 year guarantee against warping, cracking and discoloration. Eurocell Fascias come in a wide choice of colours – including wood-effect finishes – and are available in 18mm standard or 16mm ogee styling. Soffits come in matching colours and may be standard or lightweight with a choice of ventilation. Chelmsford Roofline can help you decide on the right soffit ventilation specifically for your home.
Guttering & Downpipes in Chelmsford
To improve the outer appearance of the home, Chelmsford Roofline install high-capacity guttering that requires fewer downpipes. We offer the same great choice of colours for our PVCu guttering as we do for our fascias and soffits, as well as offering guttering and downpipes in a cast iron effect finish for a more classical look.
All of our guttering products are made from 100% recyclable materials.
Chelmsford Roofline provide emergency repairs to leaking and damaged gutters and downpipes.
Weatherboard & Bargeboards in Basildon
Modern designs and vibrant colours have made weatherboard cladding into something of an art form. But weatherboard is also a practical and effective solution to protecting the home from the elements, especially in damp climates and for properties close to the sea where high salt-content spray can be particularly damaging.
Chelmsford Roofline use Cedral Weartherboard from Marley Eternit. Cedral weatherboard is made from fibre cement and is the perfect alternative to timber or PVCu. Fibre cement weatherboard is fire resistant and low maintenance. It does not warp, shrink or rot. Fibre cement can be painted but weatherboard from Chelmsford Roofline is also available in a wide range of pre-applied colours.
