Beautiful carpets and remarkable vinyl flooring are just two of the choices offered by our web promotion partners Harley Carpets in Brentwood, Essex. These flooring specialists have endless know-how and experience when it comes to choosing your perfect carpet, underlay, vinyl or wood flooring. They are also partnered with the Society of British and International Design [SBID], demonstrating their commitment to the promotion of beautiful, well designed homes.

Carpet has always been an incredibly popular flooring choice, due to its advantages which include, enhanced thermal insulation, meaning smaller fuel bills, non-slip underfoot comfort and reduced noise. Noise reduction is an important benefit especially in flats or apartment buildings, where residents on lower floors can be negatively affected by noise from hard floors above. Carpets are soft, quiet and give a pleasant cushioned feeling when walked across, and in addition they provide a higher level of energy efficiency. A carpeted room will retain up to 10% of its heat, as carpets are natural insulators, and a good quality underlay will boost this even further. There are a vast range of underlays available which are specially designed to give extremely high levels of insulation, meaning lower bills along with a lower carbon footprint. There are a limitless variety of carpet styles, colours and patterns and Harley Carpets are happy to advise on any aspect of your purchase.

You may be considering a vinyl floor covering, which also throws up a world of choice, particularly where luxury vinyl flooring and tiles are concerned. Vinyl flooring is a great option, delivering the spectacular results you are looking for without the trouble or expense. This best selling option gives an attractive and functional flooring solution, ideal even for potentially wet indoor environments like the bathroom or kitchen.

Fascias, Soffits & Weatherboard Cladding in Essex

In some ways it can be said that Optic Control represent the luxury end of the home improvement market. We wouldn’t necessarily agree. Communications, home security and multi media entertainment are basic requirements in this day and age.

In some ways it can be said that our friends and Essex neighbours at Chelmsford Roofline offer an essential service in home improvements. After all, fascias, soffits and guttering are indispensable in protecting buildings from water damage. This may well be true but modern roofline products, such as Eurocell fascias and soffits, or Cedral weatherboard from Marley Eternit, are as decorative as they are functional.

A quick checklist for those who are unsure what roofline products are:

  • Fascias look like skirting boards running around the top of the outside wall. They protect the roof beams and rafters from the weather.
  • Soffits are the downward-facing panels beneath the fascias, filling the gap between the fascias and the wall. Soffits are usually fitted with built in ventilation to prevent damp in attic and roof spaces.
  • Weatherboard – or weather cladding – protects brickwork from the elements. Weatherboard is commonly found in coastal and exposed areas.

Traditionally, roofline products were manufactured from timber. The biggest drawback is that to prevent rot, cracks or warping, wooden fascias, soffits and weatherboard needs to  be primed, treated and painted every five to six years.

Modern fascias and soffits are manufactured from PVCu to prevent damage and discoloration. They are maintenance free and when expertly installed by a specialist company such as Chelmsford Roofline they will last for decades.

Cedral weatherboard recommended by Chelmsford Roofline is made from a blend of concrete fibre that is as practical as it is versatile and is often installed for its architectural appeal.

More information on all roofline products – including boxboards, bargeboards, guttering & downpipes – can be found at
