If your roof is looking a little jaded, there are things you can do to give it a face lift, and there are not major changes, and for a small price, you can brighten up your roof line. Most UK homes have timber fascia & soffit boards, and these can be replaced with PVC that requires no maintenance, and with a range of attractive colours, you can add a little contrast to the roof.
- PVC Fascia & Soffit – The lengths can be cut much like timber, and with concealed fixings, your roof will have a seamless look that does not need repainting. In the event of storm damage, there are affordable emergency roofers in Stoke who can carry out prompt and effective repairs, while also replacing your old wooden boards with PVC.
- The Guttering – This might be made from cast iron, stainless steel or aluminium, and the guttering does take a lot of punishment throughout the year. Old guttering should be replaced with either PVC or stainless steel, and the best form of guttering is wide and shallow, which helps prevent blockages. The downpipes should also be replaced, and this will transform the look of your roof, as well as providing a channel for excess rainwater to drain away.
- The Flashing– Typically either lead or copper, the flashing joins two separate surfaces, and if it is compromised, water will find its way into the internal structure of the roof.
Talk to your local roofing contractor about replacing the above items with a composite material, and that will make your property look more attractive.
