Roofline Transformation - Bolton Case Study

Ok, so replacing your roofline may not be the most glamorous of your home improvement plans, but you might be surprised at the difference it would make to your home.

Most traditional roofline products are made from timber, including those in the home featured above. Over time, as the roof is exposed to the elements, water is absorbed by the timber, leading to rotting. If left unchecked, water from blocked gutters can lead to damp issues within the home.

Our customer in Bolton took the decision to replace their timber roofline, with UPVC roofline products.

Our dedicated roofline fitting team began by erecting scaffolding to work off, ensuring a safe and efficient installation.

The team then started a complete strip off of the existing roofline. Many companies unfortunately still over-clad timber soffits and fascias, which prevents the timber underneath from breathing ultimately speeding up the rotting process, which can cause huge problems for the roof. By stripping off and undertaking a complete replacement, our customers were investing in a long-term solution.

Rotten felt was then trimmed back, before fitting a new eaves tray under the first row of tiles. Over fascia vents were fit on to new white fascia board, then followed white soffit board, new gutters and downpipes.

As a finishing touch, we also added downlights to the lower level soffit board - see roofline can be glamorous!

Our customers were left with a home that looked polished and elegant, and the knowledge that they had made a maintenance free, weather resistant, investment in their home.
