Roofline

Existing timber fascia and soffit boards are always removed because any defective timbers will continue to deteriorate if they are covered. In particular dry rot and woodworm will eventually lead to structural failure so it is important that defective woodwork is treated with a preservative or replaced in part or whole as required.

New fascia and soffit boards can then be fixed in position with colour coded nails, pins, or screws (all made from stainless steel). The boards are fixed directly to the rafters or to a plywood (marine grade) substrate.

The eaves are protected with new breathable roofing felt and a rigid PVC eaves tray (which prevents the roofing felt from sagging).

Ventilation

Ventilation requirements can vary from roof to roof depending on the pitch and the use of the internal loft space. Usually ventilation is supplied via a continuous fixed vent located above the fascia board and hidden from view by the guttering.

Gutters and downpipes

Gutters and downpipes can also be supplied in different shapes and colours and tailored to the size of the roof that they serve. They are fixed with stainless steel screws.

Windows, Doors and Conservatories

The Swish 24/7 profile offers high quality, high strength and high security, with a wide choice of styles and finishes. The doors and windows are fully reinforced with steel, aluminium or a recycled composite, internally glazed and fitted with multi point locks.

The frames are fixed with bolts into the surrounding brickwork. The perimeter is sealed with expanding foam and finished with trims, sealants or render as required. The frames are then glazed with Planitherm sealed units filled with 90% argon gas to give an 'A' rated window. As a FENSA member you can be assured we will install your windows in accordance with the latest building regulations.

Cladding

The original boards are removed and any necessary repairs are made to the supporting battens and felt. The new cladding is then fixed to the battens with stainless steel pins. Each subsequent board hides the fixings of the previous board. uPVC cladding is more thermally efficient than timber and once installed requires no further
maintenance.
