What is Gutter Guard?

There are various types of products on offer depending on your problem and type of gutter system. The products are fitted to your existing gutter system to protect the gutters from becoming blocked due to falling vegetation, debris and leaves. Some are fitted to the top of the gutters, or in some cases slots into the gutter cavity. All the products are easy to install as a DIY project or could be installed your local handyman.

Depending on the product you choose and gutter layout, the gutter protection system may need to have plastic clips to hold the mesh in place or screwed down with self-tapping screws. Every type of gutter guard will require a minimum amount of maintenance. With our systems, nature does most of the work, leaves and debris are left to dry on top of the gutter guard and the majority blows off allowing water to enter your gutter and flow away as it should.

The perforations in our mesh are perfect size to allow flowing water and sun light into gutters preventing rot, mildew and silt build up. This can happen in extreme cases. Our products are perfect for hosing out your gutters or simply remove the product to access the gutter cavity.

WHAT ARE BARGEBOARDS?

Barge boards can have a large, visual impact on a home being attached as they are to a roof’s gables. Of course, this is intentional since the primary purpose of bargeboards is to make that part of the roof / building look better. Of course, they also serve a more practical function in that they cover any exposed materials and help protect them. Normally made from chromadek material, they can be matched in colour and pattern in order to suit the home.

WHICH BARGEBOARD SHOULD I CHOOSE?

The process of choosing your barge boards is near identical to that of choosing your fascia. There are different types, naturally, such as square, bullnose and flat. Materials available are wide and varied so you will never be stuck for choice. Maintaining your barge boards is simplicity, but a common mistake is simply placing new boards over old. This simply accelerates the deterioration of the board (in the case of wooden boards), and possibly the fascia too.

When choosing a roofing design for your property, there are a range of additional features that you can choose to have installed for added functionality, or to improve the aesthetics of your home. One of such features are roof bargeboards; in this article, we’ve covered everything you need to know about them.

WHAT IS A BARGEBOARD?

Bargeboards refer to the fascias located at the gable end or side of a roof. Used to protect the roof timbers of a building, bargeboards can also have a significant impact on the general aesthetics of the exterior of your property.

TYPES OF BARGEBOARD

Bargeboards can be manufactured in a wide range of materials, including:

  • Metal
  • Timber
  • Plastic
  • uPVC

What’s more, bargeboards can often be made in a variety of colours, with a range of coating options, so can make a great addition to any property no matter what style it is.

CAN BARGEBOARDS BE REPLACED?

In short, yes, bargeboards can be replaced if they are damaged or look old and worn on the side of your building. However, the tiles that are cemented in place and attached to the bargeboard may also need to be replaced before fitting your new bargeboard – this entirely depends on the condition of the fascia and the roof timber underneath. A scaffold tower should be used in order to carry out this work safely.

 

BENEFITS

A major functional benefit of bargeboards is that they will keep your roof lining dry and free of any gaps or holes around the edges of your roofing. The main benefit of adding bargeboards to your property is for aesthetic purposes, however, adding a great look and character to the roofline of the property.
