Roof rejuvenation is a fantastic way to give your property a face lift, helping to protect it against the elements for years to come and, most importantly, increase the value of your property!
From a good cleaning to a full roofline refit with guttering, fascia and soffit replacement – there’s a lot you can do to improve the aesthetic and quality of your roofline, and none of it has to break the bank.
“I’d like to increase the value of my home!” – well, we’ve got some tips for you…
Give your roofline a good spring clean
Whether you do it yourself or hire a professional to get the job done for you, giving your roofline a good clean is a great way to get it looking better without having to replace anything.
Keeping your roofline clean will help it do everything it is supposed to. A clean guttering, free of clogged leaves and debris, will allow water to be properly drained from your roof rather than letting water fall beside the property where groundwater can cause damage to the foundations.

Most importantly, when your roofline is clean, you can have a thorough look for signs of wear and tear such as rotten wooden fascia or cracked drainpipes. This will give you a better idea of what is still in good working condition and if anything needs properly replacing.
Replace your guttering
As previously mentioned, leaky guttering can have long term effects on the foundations of your property. Maintaining a healthy roofline – and fully functional guttering – is paramount for maintaining or increasing the value of your property.
If you’re replacing your guttering, uPVC guttering is a great solution – it’s very reasonably priced, low maintenance, and is built to last. You can also choose a colour to suit your roofline best, such as white, black, grey, or brown, depending on your taste. Read more about The Features and Benefits of uPVC.
Replace your fascia and soffits
If you notice your fascia has started to rot or become damaged, it’s really important to get it replaced for the health of your roofline (as well as the aesthetic). Find out more by reading about ‘When should I replace my fascias and soffits?’ If you’re choosing new fascia and soffits, uPVC is a great choice. uPVC fascias and soffits are a great alternative to wood as they won’t rot or need repainting.
uPVC makes for an excellent fascia board material for the same reasons it makes great guttering – it’s reliable and strong enough to battle the elements but malleable enough that it can flex when it needs to in order to prevent breaking. You can also get it in a variety of colours to best complement your roofline.
uPVC is also a great insulating material which makes it an ideal option for fascia boards. It’s really important to ensure everything is sealed and insulated along the roofline in order to prevent heat loss from your property. By improving your insulation, you will improve your energy efficiency, and this will increase your property value.
Think about your windows
Though not part of your roofline, replacing your windows and doors with double glazing and high-quality uPVC fittings will also increase the value of your property. Most roofline companies, like us at Roofline Designs, will offer windows and doors as well as roofline fittings such as guttering, fascia, and soffits.
