Fascias, Soffits in Kent
Fascias and Soffits are custom cladding panels with specific shapes and uses which form the link between your roofing and the exterior walls. The fascia and soffit serve two main purposes:
1. Fascias and soffits are installed directly under the gutters on your roof. As a result, they are required to bear some of the load of the gutters, and need to be highly durable and resistant, as a gutter can see gallons upon gallons of fast, heavy water passing through it during a storm
2. Fascias and soffits are the frontline defence of your roofline and loft cavity against wind and rain. They need to stand up to such weather forces over long stretches of time, and they need to be specially constructed to avoid secondary issues like loft cavity ventilation.
C and L External is a family run business that can provide the highest quality materials, we provide fascias and soffits consultations and quotes for soffit installation as part of your build. Our panels are cost-effective and easy to install and maintain. Custom cuts can be made as necessary and there is little to no wastage as part of our sustainable vision. Below with detailed some more information about fascias, soffits and some more information about our company.
What are fascias?
A fascia is a long cladding board that is installed along the bottom edge of the roof where it meets the exterior wall. When it is fit into place the fascia supports both the roof tiles above it as well as the guttering. This requires some custom cuts and additional durability. In some cases, the fascia will be ventilated in order to keep quality air flow in the roof cavity, avoiding mould and damp build-up that can damage your roof in the long run.
What are soffits?
A soffit is another custom board that sits directly under the fascia, forming the bottom of a box shape if the fascia is the side wall and the roofing is above. Like the fascia the soffit needs to be highly durable, as it does its part in holding up the material above it, and in some cases will be ventilated for the sake of the roof cavity avoiding damp and mould. This section is usually very visible to viewers below, and so is carefully designed and installed with maximum care.
What is a boxend?
A boxend is the corner piece of the panelling design under your roofline. If the soffit is the bottom surface of a box, the fascia is the front facing side and the boxend side makes the third facing around the corner of your building. As a result of its position the top edge of the boxend will usually connect directly to your roofline as it rises up the side of your building. This necessitates careful custom cuts in order to perfectly fit the panel against the tiles above.
How do I know the correct size for my fascias in Kent?
In order to confirm the correct size of fascia for your build in Kent, you must know the width of your fascia board (a) and the slope of the roof (b/c). The calculation is a x (b ÷ c). For example, with a fascia board width of 1 inch, and a slope of 9/12, the calculation is 1 x (9 ÷ 12) = 0.75 inches.
When will I know that my fascias and soffits need to be replaced?
It is particularly important to keep stock of how well your fascias and soffits are keeping as, if they fail in some way, through age or damage, you can be at risk of further damage to the panels and the other materials around them. This can lead to issues with your roof, timber decay, damp and mould. To mitigate this risk, you should look for the following symptoms and contact us if you see any issues:
• Softer sections of wood could indicate mould/rot
• Standing water in the roof cavity could indicate a leak
• Cracks in your paint could indicate temperature or damp issues
• Any condensation could indicate that the panels or the ventilating setup are failing
