What is the roofline on your Strathaven home – and what does it do?
The roofline on any property, domestic or commercial, is important. And yet, it is often the unsung hero of a property. Forgotten about until it fails or is in need of repair, many homeowners should keep an eye out for their roofline on occasion; if you do see something wrong, you should seek the remedy it immediately.
What is the roofline?
The term roofline may be one you are unfamiliar with. In a nutshell, it is all the components that seal the edge of the roof against the elements.
It is the small, but important components such as the fascia boards on to which the guttering is fixed; the gutters themselves, along with down pipes are also part of the roofline system. It is also any cladding that you have on your home, and the soffits etc., that all seal the edges of the roof, ensuring that weather and pests cannot gain access to the roof space.
Why is it important?
There are many reasons why the roofline on your Strathaven is important:
- Weather-proofing – ice, rain, wind, snow and the sun all take a toll on the exterior of your property. Raining or ice in the loft space can lead to damp issues that can, over time, become expensive to repair.
- Pests – squirrels and even fleas, moths and beetles can make their way into the home via gaps in the roofline. Squirrels, for example, can squeeze into the loft through a hole as small as their head, thus any small gap needs to be filled immediately.
- Visual appeal – a missing section of gutter, a rotting fascia boards and so on can mean that the first impression of your property is not what you want it to be. Many people choose to update and improve the exterior of their property by updating the roofline at their Strathaven home.
- Protects the foundations too – you would not necessarily associate the roofline of your Strathaven home with its foundations but, if the guttering, for example, is leaking or not channelling rainwater effectively from the roof, it can lead to sodden foundations. This can lead to heave and this is why it is important to not let the smaller issues become bigger ones.
Is the roofline of your Strathaven home expensive to repair, update or maintain?
The good news is that the cost of the various roofline components is relatively inexpensive in comparison to the important function that they do. Thus, repairing, updating and maintain the exterior of your property is easy!
