Full Replacement or Cap-Over
Regularly we see customers who rather than replacing old rotting timber fascias with UPVC fascias they have chosen to fit capping boards. Although in the short term this can seem like the cheaper option in reality over time the problem will only get worse. The rotting wood will continue to deteriorate and eventually the nails will become loose, leaving your fascias exposed and insecure.
UPVC Roofline Versus Softwood Timber
Softwood timber is a porous material and once water has breached the outer layer it is only a matter of time before the timber will start to rot. UPVC rooflines on the other hand will never rot, will never need painting and will not discolour. UPVC rooflines are virtually maintenance free, the occasional clean with warm soapy water will keep them looking good for many years to come.
