Roofline & Cladding
long lasting kerb
If you currently have timber roofline, you will have seen first-hand that it takes both time and money to maintain your timber, or alternatively you would have seen the steady demise of the product once moisture sets in. Many companies will simply over-clad (cover up) the rotting timbers with new fascias and soffits, which will likely look fantastic in the short term and initially reduce your outlay. However the timbers underneath will unquestionably continue to rot and to sweat, which will inevitably cause far greater problems when this starts to eat into the roof rafters.
How do we do it?
GAP remove all timbers in their entirety. In the event we did find any existing damage to your roof rafters, rather than carry on regardless, we would splice in a new joint. We don’t use any felt in the installation process, as we know from experience this has a shorter lifespan and is more prone to water ingress than our alternative. We use a Ubbink product which also incorporates a bird comb, which as the name suggests, is a comb-like shape that fits under the first row of tiles in order to block any potential points of access for birds.
Facias & Soffits
Your fascias, soffits and guttering will be installed by our specialist roofline team, as opposed to many companies who simply use window fitters and then give them some guidelines to follow.
The colour range includes the standard white, right through to golden oak, rosewood and a more contemporary grey. All of these are a colourfast uPVC, meaning your new roofline will stay looking brand new for many years to come.
Whether you are looking to clad around your dormer windows or perhaps give your front elevation a new look, the abundance of cladding substrates and colours could be just what is needed. You may opt for the simplistic white uPVC, add a colour or Marley cladding. We double baton the framework and install a vapour paper prior to your new cladding installation. It’s all finished with colour matching pins and edge trims to ensure an immaculate finish… that will also help to insulate the property!
