We can help domestic and commercial clients in Upminster, Hornchurch, Romford and Essex to improve the lifespan of their roof by carrying out essential maintenance work for faulty guttering, fascias and soffits. If your property is suffering from broken or decayed roofline components, a fully-trained roofer can repair cracks or replace worn materials through our fast and efficient roofing services.
Repairing Fascias and Soffits
A roofer will examine the condition of your fascias and soffits. Based upon evaluation, they will determine whether or not your fascias and soffits will need to be renewed. If there are signs of rot (due to excess moisture) or warped surfaces (typically from prolonged weather damage), the entire boards will need to be completely replaced. Fascias and soffits can also sag from their original position over time, and can be secured into place by a qualified roofer.
Restoring Guttering Systems
Gutters are prone to blockages from trees debris and the activity of local wildlife. Therefore, guttering systems need to be checked and cleared on a regular basis, or cleaned by a professional roofer. Blockages are likely to happen during the spring and autumn months, which is why Upminster, Hornchurch, Romford and Essex clients should arrange safe routine inspections to prevent serious damage. A blockage can lead to damp on inside walls and, if left for prolonged periods, could cause building damage.
Other common issues a roofer can rectify are the security and the angles of guttering pipework. We can improve the stability of the guttering system at your Upminster, Hornchurch, Romford or Essex property by adding new screw and trusses. Improperly pitched guttering, which may come loose from sagging fascias and soffits, can affect the flow of rainwater because it is transferred through the vertical downpipes to the drains.
Ideally, gutters should slope ¼ of an inch per 10 feet of pipework in a downwards direction, thus preventing gutter overflow and building damage.
