What are fascias?
Commonplace on most properties, fascias boards support the first course of roof tiles and are fitted over the end of the rafters. Not only do they improve the look and feel of your property, they will also protect it against the elements.
What are soffits?
Also used for property protection, soffits are fitted to the underside of overhanging eaves between the fascias and house wall. They can be ventilated to allow a flow of air into the roof, reducing the chances of condensation and timber decay.
Why should you choose UPVC fascias and soffits?
Properties over 20 years old will typically have wooden fascias and soffits. While this was the best material at the time, it tends to rot and deteriorate as the years go by, which can have an adverse effect on their effectiveness and appearance.
But this is not the case with UPVC due to the material’s hardwearing and durable qualities. Along with standing the test of time against adverse weather conditions, UPVC fascias and soffits also look great and are available in a wide range of colours and finishes to match your property’s aesthetic.
What are some additional advantages of UPVC?
One of the biggest benefits of UPVC fascias and soffits is that they require very little maintenance apart from the odd clean now and again. Their bright and fresh appearance can also impress buyers and increase the value of your home if you decide to sell.
UPVC is much more environmentally friendly than wood too. This material is 100 per cent recyclable, can be used up to 10 times, and doesn’t require any trees to be chopped down unlike wooden fascia and soffit replacements.
Who should replace fascias and soffits?
There is no reason why a competent DIY enthusiast with the right tools can’t replace fascias and soffits. However, you must take proper safety precautions such as erecting scaffolding if working at height.
Even so, most people will get a roofing specialist to come and install replacement UPVC fascias and soffits for them. Most professionals will advice a complete upgrade rather than just ‘capping’ over old wooden fascias and soffits, as this doesn’t get to the root of the problem.
