What are Roof Bargeboards?
When choosing a roofing design for your property, there are a range of additional features that you can choose to have installed for added functionality, or to improve the aesthetics of your home. One of such features are roof bargeboards; in this article, we’ve covered everything you need to know about them.
What is a bargeboard?
Bargeboards refer to the fascias located at the gable end or side of a roof. Used to protect the roof timbers of a building, bargeboards can also have a significant impact on the general aesthetics of the exterior of your property.
Types of bargeboard
Bargeboards can be manufactured in a wide range of materials, including:
What’s more, bargeboards can often be made in a variety of colours, with a range of coating options, so can make a great addition to any property no matter what style it is.
Can bargeboards be replaced?
In short, yes, bargeboards can be replaced if they are damaged or look old and worn on the side of your building. However, the tiles that are cemented in place and attached to the bargeboard may also need to be replaced before fitting your new bargeboard – this entirely depends on the condition of the fascia and the roof timber underneath. A scaffold tower should be used in order to carry out this work safely.
A major functional benefit of bargeboards is that they will keep your roof lining dry and free of any gaps or holes around the edges of your roofing. The main benefit of adding bargeboards to your property is for aesthetic purposes, however, adding a great look and character to the roofline of the property.
Bargeboards are a particularly popular look on Victorian and Edwardian-era properties, however the designs have evolved over the years into some beautifully charming styles suitable for a wide range of buildings.
