If you’re a new homeowner and you probably noticed there are lots of little parts of your house that you’ve never noticed before. Fascias are an architectural feature of your home that bonds under the roof edge protecting the underside of your rafters. They run horizontally around the edge of your home, filling in the overhanging gap from the roof. These are usually visible to the casual observer and can be used to create a stunning aesthetic effect if you so choose.
Like all architectural features, you can choose from a range of different materials for fascias. As an essential part of your roof, particularly as it protects your rafters from rot and water damage, you want to choose your material wisely, which is why we would encourage using uPVC. Here at Bliby Plastics, we can offer you a range of stunning fascias, which combine stunning looks and effective protection.
If you’re still not entirely sure what a fascia is and how it can help to protect your home, then here is a brief overview of what these architectural features are and why they are important.
What are Fascias Used for?
When you put a roof on a house, you’ll inevitably end up with some small gaps between the wall and the roof. This can be problematic if the gaps are left because water can get into your home. The last thing that you want to deal with is the damage from unexpected long-term water damage. This is where a fascia can make all the difference. They lie neatly at the end of your roof, filling in these gaps, and ensuring that your home is protected from the outside elements.
Not only are they useful for protecting your home, but they also offer the chance to create a much nicer finish to your property. Open-ended rafters aren’t necessarily the most attractive look for your home, and it is much more aesthetically pleasing to add in this extra panelling to create a neat, finished look. You can also blend the fascias into a wider design by carefully picking your chosen colour to tie into your windows, doors, and cladding. This not only means that your home is protected, but it also increases its street appeal.
Why Choose uPVC?
Here at Bliby Plastics, we specialise in uPVC fascias, which is an incredible asset for many of the properties we work with. uPVC is durable and hard-wearing and unlikely to rot or warp over the years. As a result, you won’t have to worry about maintenance and can rest assured that they will look as amazing after many years as they do after their initial installation.
Additionally, you have a huge variety of colours and styles to choose from, making them the ideal choice when you’re picking out a particular aesthetic. uPVC offers our customers the opportunity to explore the design aspect of their home’s exterior without having to give up the high-quality protection that fascias offers the home.
