Are your home’s fascias and soffits looking tired and dirty? Or can you see signs of outright damage? It’s easy to overlook just how important these features are. Along with the guttering, they form your property’s roofline system. This plays a key role in protecting your roof and walls from water damage. It also provides a barrier against birds, vermin and other pests which see your roof as a warm, safe place to make a home.
Based in Bordon, Upper Level Property Services carries out soffit and fascia replacement in Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex, from Haslemere to Portsmouth, and Farnham to Fleet. Whether your roofline has suffered localised damage, or it’s simply at the end of its lifecycle, you can rely on our roofing company to restore your home’s watertight seal.
Due to their placement around the roof, it’s difficult to safely assess the condition of your home’s fascias and soffits. To cover every eventuality, it’s important to recognise the most common signs that indicate damage or failure.
Do your gutters often drip and leak even if the weather is dry? In such cases, fallen leaves or other debris like built-up dirt is typically clogging them. When this happens, water pools in your gutters rather than flowing away to the drainage system.
Standing water increases the weight within your gutters, which can cause it to pull away from, and damage, the fascia. Stagnant water also attracts pests and leads to gutter rot, which can affect your fascia too. In addition to soffit and fascia replacement, Upper Level Property Services also undertakes all gutter repairs.
Damaged Roof Rafters
Wet rafters or signs of rot and mould are a direct result of damaged fascias and/or soffits. Put simply, these products should provide a watertight seal that encapsulates your roof’s exposed timberwork. If water is entering your roof, it’s either through a crack in the roofline, or the roofing materials themselves.
For your peace of mind, our roofing company covers every eventuality, with either soffit and fascia replacement or our range of roof repairs.
Signs of Water
Interior spaces within your home shouldn’t have any contact with water. If you see signs of dried water in your loft or attic, or on the ceilings and upper walls of the rooms directly beneath, you probably have a leaking roof.
Water can cause significant damage quickly, so it’s important to call us on 01420 476 640 or 07962 201 355 to schedule a home visit at the first sign of moisture ingress.
Evidence of Pests
From bugs to birds to rodents, having pests inside your home is both troublesome, annoying and unhygienic. When fully functional, your soffits and fascias should keep all animal intruders out. If you notice strange sounds in your loft, increased droppings around your property or, of course, you see animals gaining entry, you have a compromised system.
Once you have removed the pests from your home in Haslemere or the neighbouring areas, Upper Level Property Services can perform the required replacement work.
