Q: What is Guttering?
A: The guttering normally fixes to the fascia and collects the rain water that runs down the roof; the guttering will have a down pipe that the rainwater flows down to be taken away from the building.
Q: What is the Soffit?
A: The roof itself normally extends further than the brickwork (over hangs the house). The soffit is the part you see that sits under the fascia and returns back to the brickwork.
