There are a number of important considerations when choosing the design for the fascia of a property. Providing a degree of structural support at the edge of the roof it is important that the material is durable and long-lasting. It is also important that the finish matches the exterior of the house as this component can have a significant impact on providing a cohesive and well-maintained look to a property.


Properly installed and well-maintained soffits can provide a worthwhile investment by averting issues with mould and damp. In addition to providing an aesthetic benefit for a property, a properly installed soffit reduces the need for maintenance of the eaves and rafters by providing protection against the elements.


With a range of options to choose from, the design of guttering for your home can offer wide-ranging benefits in providing efficient water drainage as well as adding to the finished look of a property. The guttering system that is appropriate for each house will depend on a range of factors including the structure of the house, the required capacity and the flood risk. As a contributing factor in a range of flood prevention steps, properly installed guttering provides a key defence against flooding issues.
