At Lothian Roofline we take great pride in being one of the most popular and recommended roofline companies for the complete replacement of your uPVC fascias, soffits, guttering and cladding. With over 10 Years experience we have been dealt with some of the worst challenges and been able to deal with them.

From Coast To Coast

Lothian Roofline was born after 10 years successful service to Glasgow and surrounding areas under the name Strathclyde Roofline. We decided it was time to bring our high standards to Edinburgh and the Lothians while continuing to serve the west coast. As such, Lothian Roofline is a trading name of Strathclyde Roofline.

Common Questions

What Is Roofline?

Roofline is the section where your roof joins your walls. Typically in older properties you have a timber box either made for timber boards or plywood that part or fully encapsulates your roof rafter and secures your gutters. the vertical section is your fascia and the horizontal section is your soffit. Your Roofline will protect your timber roof rafters from rot and provide a secure fixing for your gutter and support your last row of slates or tiles.

Should I Repaint It?

Many people come to us after their painter has been honest enough to say you have rotten timbers and they don’t want to paint them as the paint will peel off. You will know yourself if it is leaking or looks rotten you have a problem paint alone will not solve. At the very least rip out the rot first and replace with quality materials before you even consider painting.

You may be getting to the stage in life where you don’t want the hassle and expense of regular painting, and regular should be every few years, ideally three years and no more than five. You may well just not have a reliable quality painter locally or the thought of doing it yourself is no longer practical.

What About Overcapping?

Overcapping is where you are advised to overcap your fascia and soffit with a thin layer of PVC. Be very aware that this is cowboy territory! Some overcaps are as thin as a 2 pence peice and even if a little thicker such as the width of a pencil. At Lothian Roofline we follow the practice of total replacement not over-cladding - of the roofline area using high quality, maintenance free uPVC.
