Everyone understands the importance of a watertight roof, but do they understand how it’s achieved and maintained? In our experience, homeowners across Lincoln tend to neglect their roofline until it’s too late; wrongly assuming its purpose is purely aesthetic. The term “roofline” is a generic way to describe the guttering, fascias and soffits that form the frontage immediately below the roof and the eaves of many Lincolnshire homes. Keeping your home cosy and dry, these form the first line of defence against the UK’s unpredictable weather conditions. With this in mind, here are 3 reasons why you should routinely maintain and replace your guttering, fascias and soffits:
Sidestep serious problems
This area is the most vulnerable to the extremities of the weather, taking the full force of wind, rain and snow. Therefore, keeping this area securely sealed should take priority. Exceptional roofline products will protect your roof space, timbers and interior from water damage; failure to maintain these properly can cause serious problems. These include damp patches, mould, dry rot, wet rot, plaster damage and animal & insect infiltration. Left untreated, these problems can become catastrophic to your homes structure. Consistently maintaining and replacing these roofline elements will ultimately keep your home protected for many years to come.
Add value & save money
First impressions count, so high performance roofline products will provide a great finishing touch to a renovated property. It’s not surprising that a high-quality roofline can increase the value of your home. Top-notch roofline products from Cliffside will show prospective buyers that you’ve really looked after your home, making it a sound investment choice. Furthermore, if you think about it, the initial outlay involved in replacing your guttering, fascias and soffits is miniscule compared to the cost of a new roof further down the line.
