Why Replace Your Fascias and Soffits?
The fascias and soffits on your home form an important part of the structure of the roof. Fascia boards support the bottom row of roof tiles, protect the ends of the rafters and keep birds and vermin out of your loft space, while soffits enclose the rafters on the underside of the roof assembly, keeping them protected from the elements.
Preventing Future Problems
Poorly maintained fascias and soffits can lead to water penetrating the roof space and damaging timber joists and eves, weakening the structural integrity of the roof and leading to costly repairs being required further down the line. If your fascias and soffits need replacing, having the work done as soon as possible can save you a great deal of time and money in the long run.

Materials and Appearance
Traditionally, fascias and soffits have often been made out of wood, which requires regular maintenance and can rot over time, making your property look untidy and leaving it unprotected. As well as providing protection from the elements, fascias are highly visible on your property so appearance is also an important factor.

Replacing Guttering at the Same Time
If you are going ahead with fascias and soffit replacement, you may choose to replace your guttering at the same time. Choosing a company that provides all three services at once may help you get a better deal than having the work done separately. Combining uPVC fascias and soffits with matching uPVC guttering can give a sleek coordinated look to the exterior of your home.
A Note on Capping
Capping is the practice of simply covering old fascias with new ones. Although this may initially seem like a cheap and easy option, rotting timber should never be covered as it will continue to deteriorate out of sight and lead to far greater problems, and greater expense, in the future. Capping is only suitable if the old fascias are completely free from damage or rot, and even in this case, many tradespeople prefer to replace entirely to ensure a high-quality finish that will remain trouble-free for years to come.
