Composite Materials for a Maintenance Free Roof

As you probably know, your roof is a critical component of your property, and like most things, it will require maintenance. The guttering, for example, needs to be kept clean to provide an essential escape route for excess rainwater, and if your guttering has seen better days, there is affordable plastic guttering in Oxford, from an established roofing contractor. PVC guttering not only looks good, it is also maintenance free, and will provide you with many years of trouble-free use.

Fascia & Soffit Boards

There are usually made from timber that has to be primed and painted, and thanks to the harsh UK climate, repainting every couple of years is normally required. These components can be replaced with attractive PVC boards that always retain their colour and will not crack, fade or split. Changing the fascia & soffit boards can literally transform the look of your roof, and PVC never requires upkeep.

Roof Components

A typical roof would incorporate the following:

  • Guttering & Downpipes
  • Flashing – Either lead or stainless steel.
  • Fascia & Soffit Boards
  • Roof Tiles

The best way to avoid costly roof repairs is to have the roof inspected regularly, which is something your local roofing contractor can do, and any minor issues can be promptly dealt with before they cause any damage.

Roof Sealant

If you would like to extend the life of your roof, why not have the roof sealed? This involves first cleaning the roof with a lower jet wash, then a silicone-based coating is applied, which is flexible enough to allow for movement without breaking the seal.
