Roofline (Soffit / Fascia / Guttering) Service

Roofline is the term used to describe the parts of a roof system that are visible from the ground. This includes soffits, fascia, and guttering. In summary, soffits are the boards that run around the outer edges of a roof and are typically covered in aluminium or vinyl. Fascia are the boards that run along the lower edge of the roof and are usually made from wood, aluminium, or UPVC. Guttering is the system of pipes and drains that runs along the edges of the roof, collecting and carrying away water. If a roofline element is damaged, it can increase the chances of a roof leak or other issues, so regular maintenance and repair of the roofline is important.

A soffit is a part of the house that are visible from underneath the eaves or the edges of the roof. They are typically made of vinyl, metal, or wood, and provide a way to cover up unsightly structural elements, such as rafters or beams, while also providing ventilation. Soffits also help to keep out the weather and pests, and can even be used to help insulate a building from the outside elements.

A soffit roof repair occurs when a soffit—the underside of a roof’s overhang—needs to be repaired or replaced. This usually happens when it leaks, is damaged or worn, or has been poorly installed in the first place. A soffit repair involves removing the existing material, assessing the state of the rafters and other structural elements, and replacing the cracked, discoloured, or otherwise damaged material with a new soffit board.


Fascia is the name for the board that runs along the edge of a roof and forms an important part of the roofing system. Fascia roof repair typically involves repairing or replacing any damaged sections of fascia, or the trim boards, on the edge of a roof. This could involve straightening any curved sections, replacing decayed sections, replacing rotten sections, covering any exposed nails, and/or adding a protective coating in order to keep it looking great and prevent future damage.


Guttering is an essential part of your roof and is an essential part of diverting rain water away from your home. The gutter runs along the lower edge of your roof and the downpipes collect the water, preventing it from pouring down the walls of your home and causing serious damage in the long-term. Properly installed and well-maintained gutters will add to the life and beauty of your home and keep it properly protected.

Getting your guttering fixed is important for many reasons. Firstly, broken, blocked or inadequate guttering can cause water to enter the roof structure, leading to roof damage or water leakage into the interior of the building which can cause many problems, including potential damage to insulation, electrical systems, or even structural damage. In addition, any water running down the sides of the building or onto the ground can create problems such as damp, flooding or the growth of mould. Finally, not having a proper gutter system in place will deprive your home of one of its most important lines of defence against the outside elements.

Other Roofline components

Bargeboards, Dry Verges, and Downpipes are other essential components to make up your roofline. Bargeboards are ornamental elements that are attached to the edge of a roof and they provide extra protection to the structure of the building. Dry verges are installed at the junction of two roofs and help to protect them from weathering, whilst providing a decorative feature. Downpipes are also a critical part of any roofing system as they are responsible for the safe disposal of rainwater from the roof. By installing these features correctly, you can protect your property from water damage and ensure that your roof will last for many years to come. At DC roofline, we have the experience and expertise to ensure that your roof and its associated features are properly installed and maintained to protect your home from potential damage.
