When to replace your fascias and soffits (and why NOT to ignore these signs!)January 30, 2019
Your roofline is your home’s defence against the elements. Fascias and soffits protect your property where the roof meets the exterior wall. Keeping your fascias and soffits in good condition is essential to prevent serious damage to your home. Fascias and soffits are designed to provide long-lasting protection. A time will come, however, when you’ll need to consider fascia and soffit replacement.
How to recognise when your fascias and soffits need replacing
For most homeowners, roofline protection is something we take for granted. Because it is not easily accessible, we don’t carry out the regular checks which we may do on other parts of our homes. When it comes to checking your roofline, there are several things to look out for which indicate that you may need replacement fascias and soffits:
- Cracks and broken sections
- Evidence of pests in your roof space – rustling or banging noises
- Rotten timber fascias and bargeboards
- Cracked mortar on gable ends
- Leaking gutters
- Peeling paint
- General poor condition
If you’ve noticed any of these symptoms, it’s a good idea to carry out some further investigations. What may seem like a minor issue, if left untreated, can quickly become a more serious structural problem. Particularly where water’s concerned, your home should be as protected as possible.
