What are Soffits and Fascias?
Soffits and Fascia's are fundamental a houses exterior, their primary purpose is to keep the guttering system attached to the building. The underside is called the "Soffit" and "Fascias" are the part that your guttering is attached to. Bargeboards are also an important part of this construction; these are fixed to the gable end of the roof which protects the roof rafters. These also require proper maintenance.
Why Paint Soffits and Fascias?
If you have Wooden Fascia's and Soffits you will need to maintain them by having them repainted with a protective coating at least every 5 years, this is essential due to the corrosive nature of being exposed to the outdoor elements all year round. Failure to properly maintain wooden rooflines can results in damage to your properties underlying structure and these damages are very expensive to put right.
What's the worst that can happen?
By not properly maintaining the roofline, wood root can develop which will allow water from weather conditions into your home resulting in internal damp complications. Rotten woodwork can also damage the underlying brickwork and the fabric of the building itself.
Another situation you could find yourself with is Rot at the end of the Roof Trusses and this can be especially expensive to be put right.
