Fascia’s are a very important part of your roofline. The Fascia Board helps supports the lower roof tiles, and their edging. Another term associated with this is Soffit Board, which is the part that is underneath, and often visible from the ground. 

The purpose of a fascia and the soffit is to keep your roof weather resistant and well ventilated. They assist in draining water away and protect the roof at some of its most vulnerable parts. Like most parts of a roof, a fascia or soffit is subject to time and general wear and tear. It is important to spot if they need to be repaired or replaced entirely.

Asking a qualified roofer to inspect them every couple of months is crucial to their lifespan and the overall health of your roof. A few signs they may need repairs is; if you notice any looseness, peeling of paint or indications of moisture. Additionally, if you notice any other signs of damage such as loose/broken parts or cracks, especially at roof intersections, then it’s worth getting in touch with the professionals to carry out an inspection and the necessary repairs.

With winter around the corner, it’s worth ensuring that your gutters are clear. Heavy rains and snow can cause some real issues if debris builds up within the gutter. As snow melts or heavy rains fall, water may not be able to find an escape through the gutter – and could end up overflowing or making its way through your roof. 

Gutters are a crucial network in a home or a roof’s well-being. The gutter controls the flow of rainwater. They can protect walls, the roof and even the foundation of the house itself. If you choose not to clear your gutters, this will eventually lead to a blockage, a backup of water, an overflow and could even bust the gutter entirely, due to the stress of the weight. 

But don’t despair, maintaining gutters can be straightforward, reasonably priced and it’s strongly recommended for any homeowner!

It is recommended to have guttering checked and cleaned every 4 months or so to avoid any build-up and to allow excess water to flow freely. Gutter cleaning isn’t too complicated to do, but it can be time-consuming and dangerous due to working at height - not to forget that gutters may need small repairs from time to time to ensure full, effective functionality. 

Generally, these types of works are better (and safer) to be inspected and repaired by trained professionals, so why not call the team at MJO Roofing on 020 8953 2306.

A missing tile is a roof defect. This can be characterised by a small gap in between two tiles or if something seems cracked or broken on the roof. Either the tile could have slipped down, to one side or it is missing entirely. Tiles are often dislodged following heavy winds, rain or snow. Either reflecting upon poor installation or the natural deterioration over the time they have been installed. 

The roof is a very integral part of a home. It protects from the rain, protects from the harshness of the sun, and keeps a home safe and enclosed. It helps save energy with heating or can be designed with cooling measures in place. However, as a roof starts to degrade with the inevitability of time, roof checks will become a crucial part of ensuring longevity of not just the roof, but the house itself.

We recently discussed how working from height accounts for 11% of safety incidents on public works, according to a report from PBC today. 

Not only this, statistics from HSE show that 39 deaths in 2014 involved falls from height. Of course, health and safety should always be treated seriously, but the added risk of working from height also needs to be given the proper consideration.
