The Benefits of Roofline

It’s true that the roofline of your home isn’t the most glamorous or interesting part.  It tends to vanish into the overall roof scheme and just fit in.  But the benefits of the roofline for your home mean that there’s no way it can be ignored if something goes wrong.

The roofline can be made up of various elements, depending on the style of your home.  There will be more roofline elements on a detached property than a mid-terrace one.  Things like gable ends will have different elements to straight roofs.

The good thing is you don’t need to know all of these elements by name or where exactly you’ll find them.  The benefit of roofline elements is that they fit into things and work quietly, helping to join the roof to the house and ensure there are no weaknesses in the weatherproofing.

The roofline is also where the guttering lives and we all know how important that is - especially with the higher rain levels we seem to receive nowadays!  A strong roofline creates a strong foundation for guttering and means it can cope with the demand placed on it by the weather.
