Fascia & Soffits - Supplied & Fitted by Alfreton Based Proven Experts
Fascia & Soffits can truly enhance the aesthetics of your home, yet they also serve an essential and integral purpose. When correctly installed Fascia & Soffits allows ventilation into the roof space preventing damage such as damp and rot from occurring in the roof rafters.
They also act as a barrier from harsh weather conditions, protecting your roof from the elements which may otherwise cause damp and other damage. Additionally, Fascia & Soffits support the gutter system to correctly divert rainwater away from your home into the drainage system. Furthermore, they act as a preventative measure against unwanted visitors such as birds and squirrels who like to nest and take up residence in your roof space.
Whilst professionally installing a crucial element to your home, Pinnacle Fascia & Soffits can provide a variety of decorative styles, and colours to suit your tastes. Please contact us for further information.
Stages of Fascia & Soffits Installation
This first image shows an example of what not to do. At Pinnacle Fascia & Soffits we never cover over existing fascia & soffits due to the fact it will leave no ventilation which will later cause the material to sweat and eventually rot.
We remove all the old materials back to the roof rafters.
We then screw in non-decomposing uPVC choc blocks to the side of the roof rafters. This allows us to fix the fascia & soffits to a straight, solid structure.
The next stage is to fix the fascia & soffits to the straight, solid chocs with the required coloured nails and pins.
Following this we screw the gutter brackets to the fascia with the correct amount of fall and spacing to allow the rainwater to run to the drainage system.
Depending on the existing roof tiles we screw an over fascia vent or a 3 in 1 system (eaves, vent, bird guard) to the top of the fascia. The eaves slide under the felt as protection to prevent any water from infiltrating into the fascia & soffits. Instead allowing water to run onto the eaves tray and into the gutter. The vent allows ventilation into the roof space. And the bird guard prevents any unwanted visitors such a birds and squirrels.
Finally, we clean and seal the fascia, soffits and gutter and install the downpipe. Job done!
