Soffits & Fascias in Penicuik


Fascias and soffits are a crucial part of many guttering systems. Not only do they provide support for the guttering itself, they enhance the looks of your home by creating 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 roofing, closing the end of the roof and providing 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 usually ventilated to enable the roof timbers to breathe and also to stop any moisture buildup. Box ends are used where the horizontal fascia meets the diagonal barge board that runs up the edge of the roof profile, giving a neat finish to an otherwise ugly join.

 

Fascias and soffits are often produced from either timber or UPVC. Wood fascias and soffits are widespread on older properties and remain popular. However, wooden fascias and soffits can rot as time passes and expose the rest of the guttering to issues or leaks. Recently, UPVC fascias and soffits have been increasingly popular as they offer a resilient alternative that will not rot. UPVC fascias and soffits are available in a wide range of colours to suit any house, although white is very popular as it provides a traditional appearance. Fascias are also available in ogee moulded designs, where feature grooves are included. These can have a striking effect.

Penicuik

On the A701 lies Penicuik (pronounced 'Pennycook in spite of its spelling), a town in Midlothian, Scotland with a population of around 15,700. Positioned between Edinburgh and Peebles, the settlement was constructed as a planned village in 1770 by Sir James Clerk of Penicuik, becoming a burgh in 1867. Its original regional industry were its popular paper mills, with the last of these winding up in 2004. The town name, Penicuik, is stemmed from 'Pen Y Cog', meaning directly, 'Hill of the Cuckoo' in Ancient British. The small town does have its global links, and is twinned with the town of L'îsle-sur-la-Sourge in France. The first occasion of the mention of the town was in 1296. Thomas Rymer's text Foedera calls attention to a 'Walter Edgar a person Penicok south of Edenburgh', and is exactly what the town's name progressed from and into today's spelling. Pennycook, another step on the ladder of Penicuik's spelling progression, appears on John Adair's map from 1862. Nevertheless, in the background of the town itself, full expansion commenced when the Cowan family arrived around 1770, and brought the industry of their paper mill. This brought the necessity for houses for employees, causing general population increasing to 1,700 by 1800. Penicuik was additionally used as the site of a prison camp for soldiers from the French Napoleonic wars, but in our current day, it is currently the site of a housing development. Nevertheless, a monolith dated back to 1830 commemorates the 309 prisoners who died there throughout the years 1811-1814. For all of your house upgrades, make sure to make use of trusted specialists in Penicuik to make certain of quality.

    FAQs

    When should I replace my soffits and fascias?

    You should replace your soffits and fascias if you are having problems. Soffits and fascias can degrade and rot away over time, and this can cause leaks, faulty guttering, or even allow pests entry to the roof space. If any of these problems occur, you should speak to an experienced roofline company to discuss replacing your soffits and fascias.

    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.

    What colour should soffits and fascias be?

    Soffits and fascias are available in lots of different colours. These include black, grey, brown, white and cream. It’s also possible to get them in brighter colours like reds, blues and greens.

     

    What colour soffits and fascias you get is entirely up to you, unless you live in a listed building, in which case some rules may apply. Most people choose a colour that matches their roof, walls or window frames to give their property an attractive, colour-coordinated look.

    Can you paint soffits and fascias?

    You can paint your soffits and fascias if they’re made of wood. In fact, it’s a good idea to do this every few years, as it can help to preserve them and keep them looking smart.

    You can choose what you paint your soffits and fascias with by deciding what kind of look you want to achieve. You can stain them if you want to maintain a natural wood look, or use an exterior gloss or satin paint if you want to change their colour.
