Roofline (Fascia, Guttering & Soffits)
Rotting wood and peeling paint are common sights because access to the roofline is difficult and dangerous, especially at the gable end of a house.
Worse still, what you see may be just the beginning of the problem. Damp may well have reached and rotted the rafters behind the fascia and bargeboards, even making holes for birds to enter the roof and nest inside. One thing is certain – left alone, the problem can only become worse.
The Horizon range of PVCU roofline and cladding products will transform your home and at the same time remove fears about further rot and damp penetration.
All Horizon Roofline and Cladding products are backed by our 10 year guarantee and are covered by an independent insurance backed warrantee.
How It Works
Vented Eaves Protector provides over-fascia protection and ventilation equivalent to a continuous 10mm air gap. It is ideal for new or replacement work where the soffit is unvented.
For new build, the unit is installed prior to tiling/slating work and requires the Jumbo fascia height to be reduced by 25mm in relation to roof oversail.
For refurbishment work, this requirement is the same, but the first two courses of tiles should be taken up, the Vented Eaves Protector fitted under the existing sarking felt and the tiles replaced.
Units are of black polypropylene, supplied in 1m lengths. Adjacent strips interlock and are fixed on top of the fascia at 200mm centres, using 65mm ring shanked galvanised steel nails. For roofs over 7.2m the fixing requirements should be calculated in accordance with BS 5534.
Weather and Colour Proof
Horizon’s cladding is made and produced from celluar PVC, meaning the cladding has a high level of resistance to weathering and discolouration. Now with the new woodgrain effect it means that you can retain the natural look of real wood, but with half as much maintenance.
The cladding we offer is manufactured to stand the test of time and be extremely durable. The panels are designed to make storing and handling quick and easy, with the weatherboard cladding weighing only 3.15kg per 5 metre board. That means that it is four times lighter than fibre cement board.
