You will find that the vast majority of properties have fascias, soffits and bargeboards, with a certain number of them still possessing softwood timber cladding. Keeping on top of timber roofline can be an absolute nightmare, with repairs and repainting only being a temporary fix, rather than a permanent answer.
Full Replacement or Cap-Over – Don’t be tempted to try and cover old rotting timber fascias with capping boards as they’re only likely to resurface again after a short period of time. A full replacement with UPVC fascias is a better solution as it will resolve any issues long-term. You don’t want to be left with the embarrassment of rotting wood showing its ugly face again, and potentially putting your fascias at serious threat.
UPVC Roofline Versus Softwood Timber – Water very easily gets into softwood timber, and once it really starts to sink in, the wood can quickly start to rot and come apart. UPVC roofline is different and isn’t at all partial to water damage, nor does it need regular repainting and maintenance. You only need a bit of soapy water and a cloth to clean the roofline and remove any dirtiness, rather than needing to take a paintbrush to it.
