What is Roofline?
Ask a room full of people to name the elements of the roofline of their home and most people won’t have a clue. And what’s okay because the question of ‘what is roofline’ isn’t one that anyone other than roofers and builders really knows how to answer.
But the roofline is a key part of the roof because it is a group of elements that finish the area and combine the interior and exterior elements to protect your property. Take the fascia boards or fascias. These are long, thin boards that sit straight under the last row of roof tiles and cover up what’s underneath - the roof trusses of the house.
You can’t really see the fascia boards from the ground but one roofline element you can see is the soffits. These sit under the fascias at a 90-degree angle and protect the underside of the roof beams. The fascias support the guttering and the soffits support the fascias.
Not all houses have things like bargeboards but if you have decorative roof elements, then you might have. Likewise, cladding doesn’t feature on every house but you’ll know if you have it. These are both roofline elements.
Last on the list is the guttering. Working away to get rainwater away from the house, guttering is crucial to protecting the property from the weather. It lives on the roofline elements and uses downpipes to send the water to the drains. Without it, the house is at serious risk of weather-related damage.
