Fascias, soffits and guttering might seem like minor details on the house but they play a very important role in protecting the roof. If they break it can lead to some serious damage so it’s important to maintain them regularly and get them fixed as soon as possible if needed. So, if you’re experiencing any problems with your soffits, fascias or guttering, don’t worry, help is at hand. In this article, we’ve outlined some of the most common issues homeowners face and how to fix them. We hope you find this information helpful.

Peeling and flaking paint

Soffits and fascias are often overlooked but they can be a major problem if not treated. But you don’t have to live with the unsightly peeling paint as there is an easy fix for this issue. You simply need to sand down and repaint your timber soffit or fascia every time it starts to peel, which will most likely happen yearly due to harsh weather conditions like rain and sun exposure. The process may seem tedious at first glance but we promise that after doing it once or twice, you’ll get into a routine of treating these areas before any damage can occur! 


If you’re seeing any signs of rot or damp on your soffits and fascias, replace them as soon as possible. Not only will this prevent the problem from spreading and causing further damage, but it will also help to maintain the integrity of your roof. 

However, you don’t need to wait until you see rot or damp before replacing your soffits and fascias. The sooner you take care of the problem, the less it will cost in terms of time, money, and inconvenience.

Clogged gutters

If you’re noticing that your gutters are looking a little worse for wear, it might be time to give them a good clean. A build-up of debris is the most common cause of clogged gutters, so make sure that you remove any excess material regularly. Not only will this keep your gutters in good condition, but it will also help to protect your home from water damage

Leaky gutters

Guttering is an important part of any home and when it starts to leak, water can damage the foundation or walls. Don’t let this happen in your house! If you see leaking coming from the gutter, contact a professional for help with replacing them. They will also be able to tell if there are holes that need to be patched up so that they don’t leak again.
