Soffits & Fascias in Minehead


Fascias and soffits are an important part of most guttering systems. Not only do they provide support for the guttering itself, they improve the aesthetics of your building by producing a clean and neat finish to the roofline. Fascias or fascia boards are horizontal planks that sit on the edge of the rafters of your roof, closing the end of the roof and creating the support that the guttering is mounted to. Soffits run beneath the fascia boards, closing the gap and protecting the underside of the rafter ends. Soffits are often ventilated to make it possible for the roofing timbers to breathe and also to avoid any moisture accumulation. Box ends are utilised where the horizontal fascia meets the diagonal barge board that runs up the edge of the roof profile, offering a neat finish to an otherwise ugly join.

 

Fascias and soffits are generally made from either timber or UPVC. Wood fascias and soffits are typical on older properties and remain popular. However, wooden fascias and soffits can rot with time and expose the rest of the guttering to issues or leaks. Recently, UPVC fascias and soffits have been increasingly popular as they provide a long lasting alternative that will not rot. UPVC fascias and soffits can be purchased in a number of colours to fit any home, although white is popular as it provides a traditional aesthetic. Fascias are additionally available in ogee moulded designs, where feature grooves are incorporated. These can have an impressive effect.

Average Soffits and Fascias cost in Minehead

Minehead

Minehead is a coastal town and civil parish in the English county of Somerset. It rests on the south edge of the Bristol Channel, roughly 21 miles (34 km) north-west of the county town of Taunton, 12 miles (19 km) from the border with the county of Devon and in proximity of the Exmoor National Park. In accordance with the 2011 Census, the town has a permanent population of around 11981, meaning that it is the most heavily populated town in the West Somerset local government area. There is evidence of human occupation in the area since the Bronze and Iron Ages. There was a small port at Minehead by 1380, which grew into a significant trading centre during the medieval period. A lot of trade moved to larger ports throughout the 20th century, but pleasure steamers did call at the port. A noticeable increase in construction throughout the early years of the 20th century led to the wide main shopping avenue and surrounding streets with Edwardian-style architecture. There are a variety of schools and religious, cultural and sporting facilities consisting of sailing and wind surfing and golf. A popular ancient local custom involves the Hobby Horse, which takes to the streets for 4 days on the eve of the very first of May each year, with accompanying musicians and rival horses. The town is the starting point of the South West Coast Path National Trail, which is the nation's longest long-distance countryside walking trail. The Minehead Railway was opened in 1874 and closed in 1971, however it has since been reopened as the West Somerset Railway. For all your home renovations, be sure to identify reputable specialists in Minehead to make certain of quality.

    FAQs

    what is a soffit?

    Soffit is a word gotten from two languages - French and Latin, whereby the root word implies to “form as a ceiling in French, while it means to “to fix underneath in Latin. Basically, soffit is a portion of the ceiling that has been constructed lower than the area that surrounds it. And even though they aren’t that much popular in recent times, they happen to be a common feature in kitchens of older homes in the UK. At times, a soffit can occupy the whole room or area in a home.

    Homeowners across the globe make use of this feature mostly as a decorative element in the room , however, there are also times in which they may be required for various purposes. These purposes include using soffits to conceal plumbing pipes or, heating or cooling ducts, which is often the case when sofits are constructed at the lower levels of homes. They’re also often incorporated in bathrooms or kitchens as soffits house light fixtures. For instance, recessed light fixtures fitted over kitchen or bathroom sinks are mostly fitted into a soffit. What’s more? Soffit can also be required in a room because of the home’s structure as the feature can be used to hide a structural beam.

    If you happen to own an older home and you’d like to remove an existing soffit, the first step is to ensure that its safe to carry out such plan. You should firstly check for any electrical lines, ductwork, lighting or structural problems that may exist prior to the commencement of the project. If you’re not sure or confident enough to pull this off, then it’s advisable to consult a professional contractor before you proceed.

    Should I fit vented soffits?

    Having ventilation in the roof void is a requirement for building regulations approval. Fitting ventilated soffits is the typical way that this roof ventilation is achieved. If you do not have roof ventilation, you may find that your roof void has problems with condensation or overheating.

    how to fit fascias and soffits?

    Fascias and Soffits, just like any other components of a home, do not last forever. They can become tired and worn out over time which implies that you’ll have to replace them to prevent further damage. Getting this project completed can be quite costly, but it doesn’t have to be. Fitting soffits and fascias is very simple task which will leave you with both a modern and contemporary styling which requires little maintenance and also more savings. What’s more? You don’t have to worry about repainting the fascias and soffits on an annual basis, all you need to do is a gentle wipe down of the features with a damp cloth to have them look good.

However, if otherwise, we’d strongly recommend you hire the services of a reliable contractor who can guarantee the best results for help. Here are the steps you can follow to fit your fascias and soffits.

    Fascias ( a 18mm fascia board)

    ✓ This is designed for a direct fix without a need for a timber substrate. Simply secure them directly to the rafters with the help of 2 x 65mm a4 stainless steel fixing nails per rafter.

    ✓ Ensure that the rafters are level.

    ✓ Cut the boards back 5mm per edge to enable expansion where any white corner trims, joint trims or angle trims is needed.

    ✓ Secure the guttering to all third rafter.

    Soffit ( 9mm soffit board)

    ✓ Ensure that the preservative treatment to the structural timber has dried out.

    ✓ Fix all utility boards of about 100mm to 605mm in width at a maximum of 60mm centres.

    ✓ If ventilation is needed, there are some soffits that are available in 150mm to 605mm widths and also provides the 10mm air gap needed for roof with a pitch above 15 degrees

    how to replace soffit and fascia board?

    Every year, various parts of your roof may need to be changed at one point or the other. Due to the fact that this event can occur at any time in a year, there’s the need to be fully ready. When it comes that being ready, you simply can’t overlook the importance of soffit and fascia boards in protecting your roof space and helping it maintain its clean and unique visual appeal. As a result, when your soffit and fascia boards need to be changed, you best do so as quickly as possible.

    This task can be completed by anyone with basic DIY knowledge and experience, but if you lack the confidence to pull off then it’ll be advisable to hire a professional who can guarantee the best results for help.

    ✓ Remove the old existing boards. In order to install the new soffit and fascia boards, you’d have to remove the existing ones first. If necessary, you can make use of a Stanley knife to make the process much easier.

    ✓ Fixing soffit boards. Several soffit boards are made using uPVC. The boards are to fixed to the underside of your timber rafter ends. Make sure to use timber to close any gaps between soffit boards and also make sure that your soffit boards’ back are resting against the wall’s top.

    ✓ Fixing fascia boards. Many fascia boards are also made from uPVC and are usually installed in a similar way to soffit boards. Use a minimum of two nails to make sure they’re secure enough to hold weight of any roof tiles and also to prevent any buckling.

    ✓ Guttering and felt. To start the guttering, you’d have to screw any brackets into the facia board. You can use a spirit levelto make sure the alignment is perfect to enable the floe of water directly through your guttering system. Once done, you should also check for any rotting roof felt at the edges closest to the gutterin. If there is a rot, make use of eaves felt trays and tuck under existing felt and overlap into the guttering
