Protect your home from rotten wood

Protect your home from rotten wood

Our recent work, taking care of rotten wood and putting in new gutters.

Here at Embassy Guttering we have seen rotten wood and badly ruined gutters. Here is how we step by step remove old gutters, add new aluminium gutters and add our facia and soffit.

First of all, what is facia and soffit. A lot of people in Dublin don’t know what facia and soffit is so therefore cant take care of it properly or replace it. A strong clean facia and soffit can greatly improve the look of your home. Check out the video below to see exactly where your facia and soffit is.

Recently we were working on a house with very bad rotten wood. The wood had also been covered by PVC which made the house worse. The rotten wood had spread all over the external area of the home. The wood had to be completely removed and gutters replaced. New facia and soffit was also installed. Take a look at our video and make sure you prevent your home from rotten wood.

Before replacing old gutters, we must tear down the old ones. Your builder must be fully qualified before taking down gutters. Check out our video below of our builders removing old gutters.

We use our machine on site for creating gutters and measuring them to size. The customer can see their gutters as they are being made and we can confirm they are satisfied with the results. Here you can see our machine in action before adding the gutter to it’s new home.

Lastly putting up aluminium gutters with new PVC fascia and soffit. The house already looks so more attractive, clean and clear of any rot!

Matching your fascia, soffit & gutters to your windows

Matching your fascia, soffit & gutters to your windows

Your fascia, soffit and gutters are integral parts to protecting your home from adverse weather conditions. They will run along the edges of your roof and down the side of your home, and you’ll want to ensure that they look good as well as function properly. Choosing the right colour for your fascia, soffit and gutters is key here – you will want them to coordinate well with your home’s existing colour scheme, without standing out too much. The most popular choice is generally to choose a neutral or low-key shade for your trim that blends in seamlessly with your home’s exterior colour scheme. The other option is to look at your window treatments, and consider matching your fascia, soffit and gutters to your windows!

Your windows’ trim colour is likely to blend in subtly already with your exterior colour scheme, and many people will choose a neutral theme for these, such as white, black, grey or cream. Other homeowners will choose a colour that provides a delightful contrast to their home’s exterior walls. A traditional-style cottage with white walls may look incredible with a rich shade of red or green along the window trim, and matching your fascia, soffit and gutters to this colour could look equally eyecatching.

The Benefits of Seamless Aluminium Gutters

The Benefits of Seamless Aluminium Gutters

Choosing what type of gutters to install in your home or premises can be a difficult decision. What type of material should you choose? How is it going to look alongside your existing structural features? Seamless aluminium gutters are an ideal solution for this. They have a wide variety of benefits, and will look fantastic on your building! Today we’re exploring the many benefits of seamless aluminium gutters.

seamless aluminium gutters

Aluminium is an incredibly low maintenance material, meaning it doesn’t need to be repaired as often as other types of guttering. Gutters with joints are usually prone to accumulating debris such as leaves. Even small items of rubbish can get into the gutters and cause the gutters to become clogged. Seamless aluminium gutters are exactly that – seamless – meaning debris won’t become clogged on the sections and cause it to back up and leak. This allows for an easier flow of water and material down the gutter, meaning you won’t have to clean it out as often as other types of guttering!

seamless aluminium gutters

Seamless aluminium gutters have no joints, unlike their sectional counterparts, ensuring they minimise the potential for leaks. Wear and tear to normal sectional gutters can cause their seams to become damaged, allowing water to flow through to your building.  This greatly decreases the risk of water damage and leaks to your home, and provides added protection to your roof. The absence of joints and seams in a seamless gutter makes them an ideal solution for long-wearing protection to your property.

Your gutter is constructed from a single sheet of metal, giving it a far more sleek and minimalist look than sectional pieces of guttering. It can be painted in a wide variety of colours, ensuring you can match in exactly with your property’s colour scheme! Seamless gutters are made to measure to ensure they fit your property perfectly. It is not something that can be easily installed though, so we always recommend using a professional installer – this type of service will ensure that they are installed correctly and expertly, ensuring you are not faced with unexpected maintenance costs down the line.

Fascia and Soffit – When to Repair & Replace

Fascia and Soffit – When to Repair & Replace

Fascia and Soffits | Dublin

Your roof is made up many different components which work together to ensure your home is protected. The fascia and soffit boards sit at the very bottom of a roof or around the perimeter of the roof. The fascia boards offer structural support to your guttering, preventing moisture from getting into your house, while the soffits are placed under the eaves of the roof to provide ventilation to your attic. Both elements can also provide protection from pests. Fascias and soffits are two of the most important parts of the roof, and it’s essential to ensure they are kept in good condition.

While cleaning your gutters out regularly (a couple of times per year) can help to keep them in good condition, the fascias and soffits as well as other elements of your roof will eventually show their age and require replacing. It’s important to keep an eye out for signs of mould, as well as warping in the boards or deterioration. Leaky gutters, frost or moisture in the attic and pest infestations are all signs that your fascia and soffit may need to be replaced.
