Roofline essentials comprise of a number of products, required to construct a highly durable, long lasting roofline for a property.
Fascia Boards & Soffits - uPVC fascia boards are installed along the lower edge of the roof, just underneath the guttering. This allows the air to flow in and out of the roof and prevents condensation from forming. These work in conjunction with soffit vents and are an essential element of roofline construction.
Guttering and Downpipe - uPVC guttering and downpipes are required in the removal of rainwater from the property. Proper installation of gutters and drainpipes along the roofline is essential in preventing pooling of rainwater, which can cause damp in the roof. uPVC guttering and downpipe is a long lasting alternative to cast iron and offers high durability too. Our range includes the essentials needed for an effective guttering system, including brackets, clips, downpipes and offset bends.
Dry Roofing - Dry roofing is a type of roof construction that doesn’t require the use of mortar. The system utilises dry ridge systems which fix together to form a solid, long lasting roof. Revent codes of practice have highlighted that mortar is insufficient in securing roof tiles to a high standard. Dry roofing allows you to quickly and simply construct a long lasting, highly durable roof system.
Roof Sheets & Glazing Bars - Our roofing sheets and glazing bars are a highly durable alternative to glass roofs. Made using a high strength plastic, installing clear roof sheets as opposed to pure glass can create a more safe and secure roofing solution. As well as glass roofs, our roofing sheets, corrugated roof sheets and glazing bars can also be used to construct skylights, canopies, shelters, porches and greenhouses.
Lead Substitute - Lead substitute is exactly what the name states, a substitute to regular lead products. Lead is a commonly used material for a number of applications, mainly roofing construction. Lead has many disadvantages, including its toxicity. It can also put added stress on the rest of the roofline due to its heavy weight. Lead substitute is an effective alternative that offers a number of benefits to the regular material.
