What's that then?
The point where your roof meets the outer walls of your house is called the ROOFLINE.
At this point expressions such as 'soffits', 'bargeboards' and 'I told you to paint those dam things', start to creep into the householder's everyday conversation.
Unfortunately, not many people are familiar with such terms (except the last one of course), so we thought you might appreciate a few words of explanation.
The Fascia is the long, straight board that runs along the lower edge of the roof. It is fixed directly to the roof trusses and usually does all the strong arm work of supporting the bottom row of tiles and carrying all the guttering.This is no mean feat, especially when the heavens open. In a downpour the roof of a 3-bed semi could be dumping several gallons of water per second into those same gutters.
The Bargeboard is the show off. It demands to be seen and won't carry a stitch of guttering. But then the condition of the bargeboard can often make or break the look of a house, and over the years it has evolved into some pretty fancy shapes to say the least.
The Soffit Board is the unsung hero of the threesome. Saddled with a name that sounds vaguely medical, it is tucked away underneath in a supporting role to the other two boards. But without it they wouldn't look half as good. The Soffit Board also performs a vital function these days in providing ventilation to the roofs of our centrally heated houses.
Without adequate ventilation, condensation will form in the roof void increasing the risk of timber decay.
The Box End is the equivalent of the local pub for these three characters. It's on the corner and they always end up in it. The Box End is a work of art, accommodating as it does the many different angles, planes and heights of the three boards as they head for another get together.
So now that you know something of the personalities that make up your roofline, when you next have friends round and the conversation dries up... perhaps not.
JUST IMAGINE IT... ROOFLINES AND CLADDING THAT NEVER NEEDS PAINTING.
Many home owners are now turning their attention towards the fascia and soffit boards on their property which are in constant need of repair or re-painting. Acorn Windows are specialists in cladding or replacing your old rotten timber. Our workmanship is continuously vetted and guaranteed for 10 years.
Acorn Windows holds a British Board of Agreement (BBA) certificate for all of our roofline and cladding profiles. The range available is extremely versatile, with a wide range of profiles for vertical and diagonal designs, as well as horizontal applications. In a choice of brilliant white or conker brown, you can create a stylish effect which will maintain its attractive appearance for years. To complement our range of PVCu, we offer a wide range of guttering. Our designer will discuss all of the available options to suit your property.
TYPES OF CLADDING AVAILABLE FROM ACORN WINDOWS:
The trick with cladding is not to think of it as just a series of horizontal planks. For the most part cladding can be set at the diagonal forming a diamond, a pyramid, a herring bone or a single diagonal. Just use your imagination, white cladding is available in four different finishes.
Here comes the nice bit. You have the choice of three different designs for the main bargeboards and fascia boards. Square jumbo has a neat square edge to it, 'Ogee' has a detail feature that gives it a bit of flare and Bullnose (which doesn't have a ring in it) has a smooth rounded lower edge. The soffit board can be made up in a variety of styles but Acorn Windows has to take into account the amount of ventilation required into the roof void.The point where your roof meets the outer walls of your house is called the ROOFLINE.

There's nothing better than to receive a letter of thanks from a customer and here is a selection from the many letters on display at our Wollaton showroom (see more on our Testimonials Page):
Dear James, I am emailing to say what a fantastic service and delivery I have had this morning by Your fitters Jason & Mike. Really helpful and polite lads who clearly take pride in their work. I very rarely send emails like this, so hopefully this is passed back to them so they continue the great service for you. I’ll be back for my other windows doing shortly!... Mark
Mark // West Bridgford
We are very pleased with doors and windows, and grateful in particular to your installation team, Jason and Michael – both very thorough and professional in their workmanship, and delightful company during the two days that they spent with us.
Bernard // Beeston
Dear James, Yesterday your company completed upvc window replacements at our newly acquired 200 year old cottage in Bingham and, unusually for me, I am inspired to write to you to thank you for the superb service your company provided at every stage of the process, from Jeff at your West Bridgford office to the man who came to measure for the windows to your efficient and helpful office staff and topped off by your installation team of Jason and Mike who were not only highly efficient and skilled but were wonderfully respectful, helpful and polite during the 2 days they were with us. As someone who was a surveyor and contracts manager in the building trade for 49 years (and so very qualified to comment thus) operatives like these two lads were the ones who you made very sure that you kept hold of by any means possible! I have dealt with many many contractors in the past covering all trades but Acorn windows, in my experience, have certainly been one of the very best. Very well done to everyone involved and all the best for the future. Regards, Graham
Graham // Bingham
Thank you very much. We are overwhelmed with the design and quality of the French Doors fitted. Thank you again, we are busy raising funds for the entrance window next to the newly fitted doors.
Joyce // New Generation Church - Basford
To Jeff Just wanted to say thank you for all your help in sorting out our new windows at such short notice. We are very happy with our new windows, especially the Irish Oak trickle vents! they look perfect!

Dear James, Susan and I would sincerely like to thank you and your team for the wonderful job you have completed at our house. In particular we would like to thank John Brocklehurst (Project Manager) who is most efficient and has attended to every detail
Mr Richardson // Nottingham
The price was right, the workmanship was first class and the finished product, both from the quality and appearance aspects, is excellent.
Mr & Mrs C Read // Sandiacre
We cannot fault any of the help, service or quality we received from your company right through from the quoting to the building of the conservatory.
Mrs M Marlow // Long Eaton
Just a few words to express our gratitude for the excellent work you have done for us … we would have no hesitation in using your company again and will certainly recommend you to others.
Mr & Mrs Hind // Mansfield
I rarely write references for anyone, but in this case because of the excellence of your company, an excellence which sadly seems to have all but expired in this country; I had to let you know of my complete satisfaction.
Mr Limb // Netherfield
