How To Spot Problems With Your Roofline In Derby
Your home’s roofline plays a more important role in keeping your property looking great then you might think. Your fascias, soffits and guttering, when in top working condition, take care of your home’s appearance and can help to prevent problems with damp, staining and even issues with your foundation. So, it’s really important to make sure your property can manage the flow of rain water.
But how do you recognise the signs that your roofline needs attention? Here’s a checklist for the top issues to watch out for.
- Peeling Paint On Your Roofline In Derby
First things first, take a trip outside and take a walk around your house to look at your roofline. If your roofline is timber, then you may be able to see signs of paint peeling on either your fascias, soffits or barge boards. If so, it’s likely that the timber has begun to rot which means rain can now get inside your roof.
To stop this happening, you have to repaint your roofline a number of times to keep it in good condition. It’s a time-consuming job and no one really wants to have to keep climbing up a ladder to do it.
With a PVCu roofline, you barely have to do any maintenance to keep it looking great and working well. A quick wipe with a damp cloth from time to time will keep it looking fresh.
At Trade Windows in Derby our PVCu roofline system stops the rot and leaves your roofline in a great condition for years to come. If you want to find out more about how our PVCu roofline system works, read our blog about saying goodbye to soffit maintenance .
- Get Your Mind In The Gutter
If your home is in close proximity to trees, then there is a good chance during autumn that the leaves the trees shed, could end up in your guttering and drains being blocked. But how do you spot this?
If it has been dry for a few days but you can still see water dripping from your gutters, then there’s a good chance that they have been blocked by debris and leaves. This means that, over time, if water continues to drip and doesn’t drain away properly, it could end up causing issues with your foundation or creating damp.
- Rotting In Your Roofline
If your guttering is blocked, it means water can spill over the sides and run down your fascias, which in time, will begin to allow water to seep through them and actually rot your timber roof frame behind them.
This can cause real problems on the inside of your roof so you need to make sure if you notice any of the signs above, that you act quickly. Replacing your roofline with Trade Windows’ PVCu roofline system can help you to say goodbye to maintenance.
