Read on and we’ll break each one of these products down and help you understand the benefits of how each component works for your home. We’ll also help you see what you should look for when replacing your Fascias, Soffits & Guttering.

What are Fascias

You may have heard the term Fascia when it comes to your home. Fascia boards are the long board that runs along the bottom edge of your roof. The fascia serves an important job for your house. Generally, the last row of roof tiles will be resting on the fascia and in most cases your guttering will be connected to it too. When you think of the harsh weather we have here in the UK it is important to have a strong, durable fascia to support this during the cold and wet months. Our uPVC range of Roofline products are extremely tough and have been designed to withstand the worst the British weather can throw at it.

What are Soffits

The Soffit board is located underneath the fascia, facing down to street level. This is usually visible from the outside of your home so is important to be maintenance free and look good all year around. As well as the aesthetical side of things, the soffits can also be used to add much needed ventilation into the roof of your home. This is very important to help prevent condensation and rot setting into the loft area of your property. Our uPVC Roofline products come in a range of, practically maintenance free, stunning designs and colours to suit any home.


What is Guttering

Guttering is something I am sure we all know about. Every home has guttering to help divert the rainwater away from their homes and off into suitable drains (or eco-friendly water storage units). However, sometimes it is easy to overlook the importance of high-quality guttering. Many older homes are fitted with cheaply made, thin and flimsy gutters. These are easily broken, cracked and split and are not really up to the harshest weather the UK has to throw at it.

Our range of uPVC Roofline guttering are made from an extremely durable material, that is designed to last for years to come whilst giving a fresh, clean look to your home.

How about Bargeboards and Box Ends?

As well as the Fascias, Soffits & Guttering your home may also need replacement bargeboards and box ends. Bargeboards are used on the gable end of your home. These can be designed in a range of different styles, to give a stunning fresh look to your home. They are also made of a low-maintenance uPVC, which means you will never have to paint again and will need little care to keep your house looking it’s best.

Box ends are used at the gable end of your property to bring everything together. This has to be styled to meet your fascias, soffits and bargeboards and is an important part of the Roofline.


All of these Roofline products come together to form an important part of every home, old leaky gutters and flaky fascias can really spoil the condition and appearance of your home. By upgrading to the latest uPVC Roofline products, you are improving and protecting your home for years to come.
