What is siding for??
Siding facades are gaining more and more popularity. The advantages of such a solution are different.: installation of this material is quite simple, works can be performed at any time of the year, and a wide range of shades provides a choice of any color of the facade.

In addition to the basic elements, there are numerous accessories (corners, connectors, ventilation grates, special strips and glazing beads), guaranteeing the aesthetic appearance of the facade. Thanks to the use of siding, the thermal insulation properties of the wall can be improved., by installing foam plates between the rafters.
Individual manufacturers offer planks of various profiles. Their surface can be smooth or imitate the structure of wood..
Purpose of spotlights
Soffits are used for roof finishing, that is, covering the protruding ends of the rafters. At the same time, they prevent the destruction of the cornice., which is especially susceptible to weather conditions. These products also protect the roof from bird nesting..

Soffits can be mounted in two ways: fix them along the rafters or set them perpendicular to the wall of the house. In this case, you need to take care, so that they do not block the air flow, required for roof ventilation. Failure to do so can quickly lead to dampness in the room or increased heat loss.. Therefore, it is better to entrust the installation and selection of spotlights to specialists..
