Soffits in CardiffWhen looking for a replacement to your current roofing system, you probably have a number of questions such as “why do I need a new roofing system” or “what benefits can I expect to receive from changing to a new roofing system?” If you have an older roofing arrangement then your roofing may be timber which is a risky material for roofing. In this article, we will address several questions that you may have regarding new roofing as well as why it is important to upgrade from timber to UPVC as a material for your roofing attachments.

Timber Roofing vs UPVC Roofing

Timber is not an ideal material for roofing due to the fact that it does not handle water damage well at all. Timber is susceptible to rotting if water soaks into the material and this can cause damage to your roofing area. Regular maintenance is required to ensure that timber is prevented from rotting and it can be difficult to regularly maintain the soffit area. Water absorption can also cause damage to the roofing of your housing as well as the roof joists and rafters which can cause costly damage to your home. The implementation of UPVC soffits can counteract this as UPVC cannot rot and requires very little maintenance. This results in a material that can resist elemental damage whilst requiring little maintenance to keep working. UPVC can also resist water pouring into outside walls which can cause damp and mould damage on the inside of your house. This material is very well suited to roofing requirements and is therefore the ideal material to replace timber.

Questions When Considering Roofing Upgrades

You may have a number of questions considering carrying out roofing upgrades. If you are wondering about the benefits of improving your roofing, we have already mentioned that UPVC is rot resistant and also will stop the possibility of mould and damp forming from leaks in the roofing system. UPVC is also customisable and many do not realise that there are many different colour schemes than the classic white aesthetic. This means that you can implement your UPVC soffits to match your current house design which can allow you to replace wood and still keep the aesthetic of your home. UPVC is also very energy efficient and is recyclable which is environmentally friendly. These products are the ideal replacement for your current roofing, especially if it is timber roofing and can protect your home as well as prevent costly structural damage from occurring due to environmental damage. There are many benefits so you should definitely consider upgrading your current roofing system, especially if your home currently uses timber roofing.

Why Are Soffits So Important?

In our August edition of our soffits blog, we look into why a soffit is such an important part of your roofing.

Cardiff SoffitsSoffits serve as both a visually appealing and functional section of your house’s roofing system. The soffit’s main purpose is to protect your rafters from being fully exposed so that it is protected by the elements. These areas are fully customisable, meaning that they can be designed to fit the style of your home. These soffits also protect your roofing from elemental damage and rotting. Any exposures of the beams underneath and mould will start to build up and you will have beams that you need to replace. Soffits can also offer ventilation which circulates air into the upper area of your home. Using a UPVC soffit allows for little maintenance of this area as we have discussed and this can be fully customised. Insects also like to inhabit the soffit area of your roofing as they are attracted to the moisture and they cannot eat through UPVC to get to your timber beams. These pesky critters will be able to get in through wood so UPVC is a great material to resist pests.  With guttering being so close to your soffit, it’s also very important to ensure that they are easily protected from the extended exposure to water and the elements. With the proper protection for your roof, you can potentially save yourself huge costs on the maintenance of your roof if it was to completely rot. Complete roof damage can cost a significant amount therefore it’s simply not worth the risk of not protecting your roofing with a soffit.

Full Roofline Protection & Replacement

We offer the highest quality UPVC soffits for your roofing. The high quality of our products means that you can be sure that your roofing is protected from the elements. Replacing your current soffit area if it is rotten is highly recommended and we can provide you with an extremely competitive quotation. Even if your soffit is in good order, if it is timber then it will rot overtime and will need replacement. Without careful maintenance of the timber, there is a risk of rotting occurring within the beams of your roof. Furthermore, UPVC is almost no maintenance as the material is resistant to the weather and water damage. It cannot rot and does not get eaten by insects. All you will need to do is rub down the material once in a while if it becomes grubby which is much more convenient than having to monitor the condition of timber as well as to treat it should it be eaten by pests or start to rot. It’s also fairly difficult to maintain aspects of your roofing area as it’s a hard to access area. UPVC looks after itself and requires you to only have to look after it once in a while.
