Roofline Focus

Are Fascias, Guttering and Soffits foreign words to you? Let us demystify them!

In short, fascias, guttering and soffits are all important in working to create a pest free home and to keep it dry for you. They are also pretty important from an aesthetics point of view (think Curb appeal); so, if you are thinking of selling your home, it would be a good idea to spruce up the outside of your house, so that it is sparkling for any surveyors and viewers, or even replacing any that are beyond repair. It is a good long-term investment if you are staying in your home, as they protect your roof and walls from harsh weather which could lead to damp and water damage, and there’s nothing worse or more off-putting to potential buyers than having to deal with issues like damp.  

Here at Prior Products, we use a PVCu material, as it offers superior protection, are sold at affordable prices for our customers and are virtually maintenance free, we also offer a number of extra accessories such as: felt trays for you guttering, ventilation components for your soffits, gable end boxes and a number of essential trims and finishing. 

Roof Soffit

A roof soffit is (as defined by Swish BP) is tucked away under the fascia board. It is usually the board that you see most of from street level and can be ventilated to allow the flow of air into the roof area. Having your old soffit boards replaced helps the prevention of build-up moisture in your roof area, which can cause a weakening of the roof structure, among a myriad of other problems – this is where the ventilation helps.
