What are Fascia , Soffits,barge boards

.Roofline Unfortunately, not many people are familiar with this term, so we thought you might appreciate a few words of explanation. Roofline is the term applied to the timber or UPVC boarding that is between the roof and the walls of your home. Guttering is also included in the term Roofline.

Roofline has been traditionally wooden on all types of home that are more than ten years old will usually have been constructed with wooden roofline. The problem with wooden rooflines is they are very high maintenance and will need re-painting every 2 - 3 year. They tend to rot easily and when left untreated will lead to problems on your home such as damp and possible infestations from insects birds etc.

UPVC roofline is a much better alternative to the timber Roofline on your home. It is very low maintenance, it doesn’t rot and will not need to be re-painted.

Here are the different parts that make up a roofline along with a diagram to the right showing these parts in situ:
Fascia board-The fascia is fixed directly to the roof trusses and usually does all the work of supporting the bottom row of tiles and carrying all the guttering and holds the soffit at the front edge .The fascia is mounted at the point where the roof meets the outer walls of your home
Soffit board-This is the boarding running right angle to the wall surface. Usually ventilated with mesh covered slots which allows the roof space to breathe.
Barge Boards- Fascia boards that follow the gable end of the roofline finishing at the box end which is also joined by the fascia and soffit
Box end- is a work of art, accommodating as it does the many different angles, planes and heights of the fascia, soffit and bargeboard at each corner of the home where there is a gable end and is often where the first signs of rot are noticed
Guttering-The gutter and downpipes collect rain water from the roof edges taking it to drain on the ground below .
Cladding-The overlapping planking seen on some home on walls , gable ends and dormers
