Roofline Elements Explained

Together, fascias, soffits and gutters make up your roofline. From a practical point of view, they seal the edge of the roof, preventing water and pests from getting inside. However, roofline products also affect the look of your property and replacing them can really neaten up your home. You can even choose a new colour to change the appearance of your home.

Fascias

Fascia boards are fixed to the exposed edge of the roof rafters, along the bottom of the roof. They seal the roof from exposure to the elements and provide a solid base for guttering. They can also hold the bottom row of tiles in place.

Soffits

Soffit boards fit between the fascia and the wall. They protect rafter feet from moisture and seal the roof space so birds and rodents can’t get in. It is important for soffits to allow a certain level of ventilation to prevent damp and condensation.

Gutters

Guttering catches rainwater from the roof and directs it away from the property and foundations to a drain in the ground. This helps prevent water damage. Gutters come in a range of profiles to suit the style of your home.
