The very design of your home is incredibly important to how stable it will be over time. One that is poorly designed is going to require more work and money than a house built with better thought and attention. However, as technology is forever developing, we now have the means to upgrade your home in many different ways.
The point where your roof meets the outer walls of your house is called the Roofline. It is made up of the Siding (Bargeboard), Gutter, Soffit, and Fascia – the four key components.
The Fascia is a long straight board that runs along the lower edge of the roof. It is fixed to the trusses, supporting the bottom row of tiles as well as carrying the Gutter. The Bargeboard, on the other hand, neatens the end of the roof but doesn’t carry the Gutter, while the Soffit is tucked away underneath the other two boards, joining the Fascia to the walls.
Without the Roofline, your property may be affected by water damage or even dry rot. Also, an unstable roof can put your health and safety at risk, so the Roofline is vital to protection. Not only that, but the plaster on your ceilings and walls can become water damaged too. And any excess water can sink into the foundations of the house. This will also have a negative impact on the electrics. So, by neglecting the Roofline, you are putting yourself and others in danger as well as the house at risk overall. Therefore, a new Roofline system is vitally important.
We have an extremely impressive range of cast iron and aluminium guttering from Rainguard. Their products also come in a range of different sizes to suit the type of roof you have.
The Aluminium Range extends from XL and SL systems to Standard and Cast, offering you something different in terms of benefits. For example, aluminium is a reliable material with high durability and non-corroding elements – perfect for your guttering system. Aesthetic-wise, aluminium is ideal as it can blend into your home, not standing out too much and looking professional and smart. Moreover, it is very low maintenance at the same time.
The Cast Iron Range is a great alternative to The Aluminium Range. Is it authentic in its appearance while being made of quality manufactured materials in a solid design. If you are located in a conservation area or have a listed building, these products will fit right in! We can preserve the traditional elements of your home, ensuring that it doesn’t stand out. The cast iron is delivered as standard in a grey transit coat, ready for you to paint onsite.

On top of this, there is the PVC Fascia Range of products and the uPVC Soffits Range as well. These products will both work together to make up the Roofline, ensuring it is completely weatherproof and stable.
