A Quick Guide to RS Cladding and Roofing Products

The fascia is the roof board that protects your roof space from the elements. It serves as a barrier to protect the timber rafters that hold your roof firmly in place and also provides a fixing point for the guttering. The fascia looks a bit like a large skirting board and is the part that ‘faces you’ as you look at your home.
Soffits are the down facing boards that you would see if you stood with your back against your home and looked up. Soffits fill the gap between the fascia and the wall. Soffits are commonly fitted with air vents to provide extra ventilation to the roof space and loft.
Guttering and Downpipes
Guttering and downpipes safely and efficiently remove rainwater from the roof. Guttering is often attached securely to fascia boards.
Bargeboards form the overhanging eaves that protect the gable end of a roof.

Why do Fascias and Soffits need replacing?

Fascias and soffits are installed to protect your home or business from the weather. They prevent damp getting into the brickwork and rot from affecting roof beams, rafters and joists. Water ingress/damage is one of the most destructive forces that can affect any property.Once damp has found its way into a home it can be very difficult to stop and highly expensive to treat and repair. Rainwater that has penetrated timber fascias through holes or cracks in the paintwork will rot the wood and spread throughout the board. Traditional timber fascias and soffits need regular maintenance. They should be painted, varnished or otherwise treated every four to five years to maintain water-resistance. If this is not maintained and the protective barrier of the paint/varnish fails you risk water ingress and damp working its way into your home.
