Surrounding the perimeter of a traditional British roof covering, roof joinery and plastic details can be found. These are wide ranging and include:
- Fascias, bargeboards, soffits and finials (most commonly in UPVC or timber)
- Eaves guttering (most commonly in UPVC or cast iron on heritage type work)
- Dry Verge and Dry Ridge Systems
With regards to fascias, soffits and bargeboards, the material type is often a reflection of the building’s age and stature. Various colours of UPVC are commonly found on more modern buildings due to relatively low cost and low maintenance features. Timber details are usually found on slightly older or bespoke buildings, usually decorated in such a way that is appropriate for its surroundings.
Rainwater goods are a similar story, with UPVC now being the more common choice for similar reasons. However, on heritage type work and older properties, cast iron guttering is often found.
Within the categories described above, different profiles (shapes), colours and sizes are all available to suit performance need and aesthetical choice. At Emerton Roofing, we are blessed with the skills, resources and expertise to repair and/or install the full spectrum of these items.
