Roofline Design

Roofline design covers a host of fittings across your house. Think of it as a group of jobs collected under one banner. Roofline can cover a host of services but is typically considered for soffits, fascia, bargeboards and antefixes.

All of the above form what is immediately under the roof of your home. The roofline can be made from a number of materials but it is most regularly wood or plastic.

There are a number of areas that the roofline can affect on your home and so while it may not be the first job you think of, you should always ensure this area of your home is fit for purpose. Not only will this mean another area of your house is looking great and acting as it should do, it will also save you time and money.

When you’re considering Roofline design and how it may look on your home, think about the following:


The forward facing front of your home, visible to all and standing proud, fascias join directly on to your roof. A number of different options are available for fascias including upvc, vinyl, composite and wood. Each type suits a different style of home.


The underbelly of the roofline, the horizontal joints that connect the bottom of your fascias to the top of your home. Some soffits will include ventilation, others do not require it.


Providing strength and protection to the gables of the roof on your home are the bargeboards. These conceal any exposed timbers and frames.


Although not common on modern builds, antefixes provide an end point to the tiles on your home. In more traditional buildings these can often be elaborate in style and solely for decorative purposes.


Gallons of water can cascade down your home in a rain shower. The gutter collects this water and helps to drain it away, preventing any issues that this could otherwise have caused.

The Importance of Roof Maintenance

Maintaining the roof on your home is very important. A healthy roof helps to protect the building from a number of issues that could cause further work in the future if it is not looked after correctly. Three reasons your should look after your roof include:

  1. Keep your home looking its best. Even if only for aesthetic reasons, a properly functioning roof is important. From the guttering and fascias and up, your roof is visible to all and gives a first impression of your property.
  2. Longer lasting roofs. Sorting out small issues with your roof as they happen can prevent major issues at a later date.
  3. Save money. Ultimately, maintaining a working roof with no issues can prevent major works in the long run and will help to save you money.

How to spot problems

Failing to identify issues could potentially lead to deeper problems down the line. To avoid this, as a starter, follow these simple steps:

  • Keep your gutters clear – this can help prevent blockages that can lead to further disruption.
  • Patch up any holes – an efficient roofline can help conserve energy.
  • Inspect regularly – make sure you are aware of any problems if they occur. Regularly take a few minutes to look up at your roofline, paying attention to each of the elements we have covered above.
  • Don’t leave a problem to get worse. Repairs can be carried out.
