Thank you for reading our introduction.
We hope we can demonstrate that we have the experience, ability and capacity to give you the very best result.
Your Roofline Quotation
The following elements are included and contribute to produce the very best Roofline installation.
- A survey & risk assessment before your work commences.
- Scaffolding (including labour) erected by our scaffolding company where necessary.
- All portable access equipment and other access equipment.
- All the required materials.
- All our labour costs for the duration of the installation.
- The complete removal & commercial disposal of all rubbish.
Your survey is the first key component to ensure the best result possible and we carry this out a few weeks before we begin work.
Unlike others who just turn up on the day, unsure of where to begin and in what order to do the job, we undertake a survey relevant to the work required. Even if we have worked on other similar houses in your road, your survey is unique to you and generates a schedule which then ensures your work goes smoothly and according to plan.
We always try to replicate the original style as keeping the character of your home can be important but we are also keen to listen to your views? You may want an extractor vent installed into the new soffit or low voltage downlights above your garage and these type of tasks can be incorporated into your work.
As part of your survey we also generate a risk assessment, looking at each part of the job, for correct access is most important. This careful planning allows us to carry out your work professionally without any issues.
We organise any scaffolding and our scaffolder erects this shortly before we start work.
Your Roofline Replacement
Although no two jobs are the same, the replacement of your Fascias are likely to be carried out in similiar steps below. This is a typical example:
- remove the existing timber Fascias, Soffits and the old rainwater system.
- assess the condition of the rafter feet and all internal supporting woodwork.
- replace all soffit battening and any other ancillary wooden fixing points.
- accurately fit the correct size of new Fascia & Soffit using Stainless Steel fixings.
- fit an essential fascia ventilation system conforming to building regulations.
- replace the existing sarking felt edge with a flexible rot-proof lip.
- install an under-tile guard to keep birds out – dependant on the tile type.
- install a new rainwater system correctly – the colour & style of your choice.
- carefully inspect and re-position the tiles back to their correct location.
- finish closing up your roof dealing with any outstanding issues.
- a final check and double check to make sure your home is fully waterproof.
Finally, all the rubbish generated from your installation is removed from your property and everything is left clean and tidy with any scaffolding being promptly removed afterwards.
Our Fascia Board
Our Fascia board is the ultimate roofline replacement product. Manufactured from PVC-u, it’s a Robust Premium-Quality ‘A’ Grade board, 18mm thick designed for full replacement applications. It’s attractive – the best finish on the market!
Ensure you always see what you are getting and never accept thinner and cheaper boards as these cannot over a longer timescale support the weight of roof tiles above and this in turn leads to Fascia boarding looking twisted and uneven.
Many cheaper plastics are not properly UV stabilised and although start off as white, change colour to cream and onwards to the yellow colour palate. Our Fascia board manufacturer guarantees their product in addition to our guarantee giving you total peace of mind.
Back in 2003 we carried out some ‘in house’ testing to determine performance and colour stability, with boards undergoing ultra-violet exposure to simulate the ageing process. Since then our customers have all benefited from our products and viewing these houses today leaves you in no doubt of the quality of these materials.
Our Soffit Board
Our Soffit boards reflect the quality and finish that is inherent in our Fascia board range.
Essex Fascias only supply and fit Grade ‘A’ solid Soffits for most upper work and tongue & groove Soffit boarding for application to larger areas such as porches etc.
10mm solid construction. (cellular tongue & groove option for larger area applications).
Choose from three main styles of guttering to go with your colour choice of Fascias and Soffits. Since 1999 we have chosen to use FloPlast rainwater products as we are impressed by the accuracy of the moulding and the high gloss finish. FloPlast manufacture high impact PVC-u guttering in Traditional Half Round & Square Line along with a Hi capacity round profile together with a wide range of fittings & adaptors. Central to any gutter performance is the seal, the FloPlast systems incorporate a wide substantial seal which we believe can only enhance and lengthen the performance of the product.
Fascia ventilation system
Allowing air to circulate through the roof space of your property reduces the build up of condensation which can otherwise cause mould and damp conditions. Although not law, building regulations dictate that a ventilation system is implemented to increase the airflow through the roof space.
However vents in soffits generally form a place for dust, detritus and cobwebs to form and are notoriously difficult for customers to clean and look just plain ugly.
So instead of offering vented soffits we choose to vent our fascias instead. We achieve this using a premium ventilation system, which fully conforms to all regulation and is totally maintenance free. It’s also totally obscured from view thus avoiding the visual encumbrance of black areas along the bottom of the soffit.
Undesirable visitors frequent the outer edges of your loft – gaining entry underneath the tiles. Depending on your tile type, we use a vermin/bird guard, which fits between the top of the fascia board and the underneath of the tiles stopping the entry of birds and other creatures.
We only use the highest quality of fixings and fix our Fascia & Soffit boards with special A4 Marine Grade stainless steel fixings. This stops rust staining from rain reacting with normal pins that some others use to fix boards.
We are currently taking bookings for Mid November so any quotations will be for work post this date. We apologise for this rather long lead up period but we do get rather booked up in advance. However most people agree that if you find someone who can do your work ‘tomorrow’, then you’ve got to ask yourself WHY?
