1. Prevent damp and mould with a roofline upgrade
Due to its positioning, your roof is the most likely area of your home to be affected by moisture, damp and mould. So, it stands to reason that if you take good care of your roof, the rest of your home will be protected against the elements for many years to come. This can be done by upgrading a rotten roofline with high-quality, low-maintenance PVC roofline products. PVC roofline products are incredibly durable and long-lasting, as they will never warp, crack, rot, flake or fade; unlike their timber counterparts.
What is roofline?
Roofline describes the frontage immediately below the roof and eaves, which protects the rafters and allows the building to breathe. Consisting of fascia, soffits, bargeboards and guttering, these should be checked regularly to make sure they’re still watertight and preventing serious damage to the roof and the rest of the property.
