As many of our roofing and building customers know, steel fascia was introduced in the Australian residential market in the 1980s to a fair bit of scepticism. Fast forward to now, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a new residential property that does not feature steel fascia.
Durable, lightweight and functional, steel fascia is a mainstay in Australian homes for good reason. Here are three major factors that make Pantex steel fascia so important.
What is Steel Fascia?
For those who don’t know, steel fascia refers to the critical protection that you find behind the gutters on residential homes. Fascia is fitted beneath the roof line and forms a barrier between the outside and the edge of your roof.
Older properties often featured wooden fascia for protective purposes, but exposure to the elements can cause wood to disfigure or rot.
Less Maintenance than Wooden Fascia
It goes without saying that new COLORBOND® steel technology is superior to wood as far as maintenance is concerned. Homeowners with wooden fascia will have to paint and repaint their fascia throughout its lifespan, while also checking for signs of rot and damage. COLORBOND® steel is famed for its durability and reliability, both during installation and for the life of the product.
Straight-forward Installation and Few Accessories
A common perception among builders is that fascia is not a profitable aspect of roof installation. New fascia products have been designed with quick installation in mind. As a lightweight and durable material, steel fascia is easy to move around during installation. Due to the lightweight, very few accessories are needed to complete the installation. Support brackets, a joining sleeve, barge mitres and internal and external angles and mitres are all you need to get the job done.
Perfect Colour Matching with COLORBOND® Steel
From an aesthetic point of view, steel fascia is sleek and contributes to the overall visual appeal of a property. The days of limited colour options are behind us, as steel fascia is now available in the entire range of ZINCALUME® steel and COLORBOND® colours to fit new or existing roofing and gutters.
