Barge boards

Barge Boards

Barge boards, Gable ends or the apex are all the terms that are used to refer to the fascias that are fitted to the ends or sides of the roof.

Derby Roofline Box End

Correct and neat construction of a box end

Derby Roofline have different styles and a variety of colours to suit all types of property’s, and our range of Barge boards come in the same colour options and finishes as our fascias meaning that they are a perfect match.

At the bottom of the Barge boards where they meet the fascia boards this part is called the Box end.

The purpose of a Box End is to further protect the timber rafters within your roof construction. It also reduces the number of joints that would appear on traditional timber roofline methods.

We see many examples of poorly constructed box ends and you probably won’t have to look far to see one of these yourself.

An appalling job

The less scrupulous companies attempt at a box end

Our expert installers at Derby Roofline always make sure that special attention is paid to the box end detail and that they are fitted precisely and in one piece.

To us at Derby Roofline it is an important part in achieving customer satisfaction therefore we want the finished look of the ‘box ends’ to aesthetically complement your house.
