help shield your home from the elements with weather shield
Home / Rooflines
uPVC fascias are designed to cover and protect the ends of your rafters and can be seen just under the roof line.
Soffits keep the under-surface of the overhang of your roof looking clean and tidy. Traditionally these roofing products are made of timber but as with most wood that is exposed to weather, even if protected with paint, once that outer protective layer gets old and warn, it will be exposed to damp, rot, warping or cracking.
By replacing these with uPVC provides a low maintenance, highly durable, environmentally friendly and cost effective solution. Weather Shield can replace your existing fascias and soffits with minimal disruption giving your home a well deserved spruce up.
Guttering collects the rainwater that falls on your roof and downpipes protect the foundations of your home. A leaky gutter will allow water to penetrate brickwork which over time can cause damp problems inside.

The fascia acts as a vertical barrier between the outside and the edge of your roof, meaning it bears the brunt of the elements and protects the roof and the interior of your home from weather damage. It is often found in the area where the gutter is attached to the roof, which means it may have to support several gallons of water per second during heavy rain whilst supporting a bottom row of tiles. Most modern homes have a fascia board, but some older homes lack this feature.
It is therefore extremely important to keep an eye on your fascias for signs of wear, as whilst fascia usually last for years, they do need replacing if the fascia board becomes ages or water damaged.
The soffit is the exposed section beneath the overhanging section of a roof. Without a soffit, when you looked up at your house, you would see exposed rafters instead, which is neither pretty nor efficient. If your rafters were exposed, they’d be likely to rot and threaten the stability of your roof, requiring a lot of extra financial support on your part.
Furthermore, soffits help to ventilate your attic as it usually has small holes to allow air to circulate. This is important in both summer and winter months, as air circulation keeps your attic from overheating in hot weather, but also prevents moisture build up in the winter which could damage your rafters.
How to tell if your fascia and soffits need replacing.
Look out for peeling or flaking paint, as this is proof that your fascias or soffits are failing to keep out moisture. Check for evidence of rot and damp, which needs to be stopped quickly before it can spread. Furthermore, signs of either insect or rodent infestations in your roof can be a sign that your fascia are rotting. If you notice any of these signs, there’s a good chance that your fascias or soffits need replacing and you need a specialist to come check it out for you.
