About UPVC plastic fascias and soffits
Fascia boards are commonplace on most properties to support the first course of roof tiles. They are fitted over the end of rafters in order to protect your home against adverse weather conditions but also to improve its overall aesthetic.
Soffit boards are found underneath overhanging eaves between the fascias and house wall. Although they also provide protection, soffits can be ventilated to prevent condensation in your roof and stop timbers from decaying.
The benefits of upgrading to fascias and soffits made from UPVC
Most buildings over 20 years old will feature wooden fascias and soffits, which are perfectly serviceable for short periods of time, but tend to rot and deteriorate as the years go by. This damage won’t protect your property effectively and can look rather unsightly too.
However, fascias and soffits made from the hardwearing and durable material UPVC provide a great defence against the elements. On top of that, they are available in a range of different colours and finishes to match the overall look and feel of your property.
More reasons to upgrade to UPVC fascias and soffits
On account of their robustness and resilience, fascias and soffits made from UPVC require little to no maintenance apart from an occasional clean every now and again. The fact they always look good and don’t need to be changed can also add value to your home if you decide to sell up and move on.
What’s more, this material is very eco-friendly, as its 100 per cent recyclable and can be used up to 10 times. As opposed to replacing your old wooden fascias and soffits with new timber, there is no need to pull up any trees either.
Replacing your fascias and soffits
Due to the height of fascia and soffit boards, most people will need to enlist the services of a roofing specialist for UPVC replacements. However, if you are a confident DIY enthusiast with the right expertise and equipment such as scaffolding, there is no reason why you can’t attempt this job yourself.
But in both cases, it is highly recommended to go for a complete upgrade rather than simply ‘capping’ over old wooden fascias and soffits, as this doesn’t get to the root of the problem.
