  • The Bargeboard area of the roofline provides protection for the roof and the gable end of your home.
  • The Box End area supports, protects and neatly finishes the roofline structure.
  • The Fascia and Soffits are essential components of every roofline. They serve the purpose of protecting and ventilating the roof space by concealing any exposed aspects of the roof .
  • Fascias also provide the additional function of supporting the gutters and the bottom row of roof tiles.


Did you know, during a typical rain shower, the average Scottish household roof can wash away numerous gallons of water every second. Therefore it is essential that the fascias and soffits are in good condition to support the additional weight.
