Homecare Exteriors are PVCU Fascias, Soffits, Cladding and Roofline specialist in Sussex
Reasons why we recommend replacing timber fascia boards
- Every timber fascia board will hold some degree of moisture. Capping over the timber fascia boards will seal in the moisture leading to rot.
- Manufacturers of PVCU fascia and soffit boards as well as many installers offer guarantees on the products. In all cases the guarantee will cover the materials, not the structure the boards are fixed to. Ensuring the PVCU products are fixed to a sound structure is vital for longevity of the new roofline product.
- Capping over the old fascia boards will result in the new guttering being set slightly further away from the roof. There is a possibility that rainwater could run off the roof and behind the guttering.
- Homecare Exteriors roofing division recommends that any tradesman who recommends capping over the existing boards should be avoided.
When it comes to replacing fascias and soffits, choosing a good-looking roofline product is only half the story. Expert installation is vital too, to protect your home against damp. Unlike some installers, we take extra care to remove the old fascia boards and complete all the finishing touches to protect your home.
