What are fascias?

Fascia boards are a common feature on most properties, primarily used to support the first course of roof tiles. They are fitted over the end of the rafters to protect your home against the elements and improve its overall aesthetic.

What are soffits?

Soffit boards are fitted to the underside of overhanging eaves between the fascias and house walls. As well as providing protection just like fascia boards, soffits can also be ventilated to reduce the chances of condensation in your roof and prevent timber from decaying.

Why should you upgrade to UPVC fascias and soffits?

If your property is over 20 years old, chances are it will feature fascias and soffits made out of wood. As you are no doubt aware, wood tends to rot and deteriorate over time due to the weather, which means your fascias and soffits might not be providing adequate protection. What’s more, if the paint start to peel they don’t
look great either.

However, the hardwearing and durable nature of UPVC (unplasticised polyvinyl chloride), means it will last for decades to come. Fascias and soffits made from this material are also available in a wide range of colours and finishes to match the look of your property too.

What are some other reasons to switch to these types of fascias and soffits?

The problem with wooden fascias and soffits is that they need regular maintenance and upkeep. But this isn’t the case with UPVC, as you will only need to occasional clean your upgraded fascias and soffits. If you decide to sell your property, the attractive addition of UPVC plastic fascias and soffits will probably command a higher price too.

Last but not least, choosing to buy them is an extremely environmentally friendly decision. Not only is it 100 per cent recyclable, UPVC plastics can be used up to 10 times as well. What’s more, no trees will need to be unnecessarily uprooted either.

Who can replace fascias and soffits?

If you are a DIY enthusiast with the right expertise and equipment, there is no reason why you can’t replace fascias and soffits yourself. But because you will be working from height, you need to take certain safety precautions, such as erecting scaffolding.

If you aren’t in a position to replace fascias and soffits yourself, then you should enlist the services of a roofing specialist. However, consider a complete upgrade instead of simply ‘capping’ onto an old and rotten wooden surface.
