Fascia and Soffit
Fascia - The fascia is the straight board that runs along the lower edge of a roof. The fascia is then fixed to the roof trusses.
Bargeboard - This is the board that is used on the gable end of a house. The look of the bargeboard can often make or break the look of a house.
Soffit - The soffit board is hidden away under the fascia board. It is normally the board that you see most of from street level. The soffit can be ventilated to allow the flow of air into the roof area. Alternatively, ventilation can be provided over the top of the fascia board.
Boxend - The box end is a work of art as it joins many different angles, planes and heights of the fascia, soffit and bargeboard at each corner of the house.
Repairing a roof due to a leak or age/weather deterioration can be a vital issue with property maintenance. A lot of us don't really pay much attention to the roof, out of sight, out of mind!
A small leak, broken cement or missing/loose tile are all little issues that can turn into much bigger problems if left alone.
Below is some of the cement work we have done on a roof recently.
This had to be done because the roof cement had cracked and started to fall away and it therefore has the risk of tiles moving or even falling from the roof, which could seriously hurt somebody.
Unsure what to look for, we are happy to come and look at your roof free of charge and advise if works are required.
The Repair Care epoxy resin system is an essential part of our restoration service and we specialise in restoring and servicing sash windows, doors and external architrave predominantly in listed buildings.
The Repair Care system allows us to make spot repairs on site where traditionally the unit may have had to be removed and replaced. This not only speeds up the job – but keeps remedial costs down.
An accurate survey before planned maintenance can lead to large savings. Rather than widespread replacement of windows it is often better and cheaper to repair in situ and this can be done with Woodcare.This is particularly important in conservation areas where replacement can only be a last resort.

Repointing is the process of renewing the pointing (the external part of mortar joints). Weathering and decay cause erosion in the joints between masonry units (usually bricks), allowing the water to get in. Water entering through these voids can cause significant damage through frost weathering and from salt dissolution.
Repointing is also called pointing, or pointing up, although these terms more properly refer to the finishing step in new construction.

Have you got air bricks?
Air Bricks are special bricks that are manufactured with holes in them to allow the circulation of air under the floor of buildings with a suspended timber floor.
But, a lot of houses built in 1960's and 1970's had ...these in their external walls for ventilation and to prevent damp.
However, with extractor fans in kitchens and no real need for these in your lounge, air bricks really just let heat out and the cold in... and we all know how expensive heat is these days!!!
We can remove these for you and brick up the area so to retail the heat in your house. If you are worried about damp from drying washing indoors etc then you could invest in a dehumidifier.
