Do It Once, Do It Right

Replacement of soffits and fascias is a job for skilled tradesmen. Our fitters are highly experienced in all types of installation as the processes vary according to the roof structure and materials ....

Typical installation where there are peg tiles or a slate roof

Pre-vented soffit affixed below rafters

First to go up is the 'pre-vented' soffit. It is not compulsory, except for new-builds, but the building inspectorate recommend it as good practice.

At this time, new reinforced PVC is tucked underneath the existing felt.

New fascia affixed

Next, we put up L-shaped fascia board. This gives the board a spine for greater rigidity and a lip on which the soffit will rest. It ensures that the fascia is straight along the rafter edges.

Gutter and downpipe fixed Finally the gutter goes up, black/white/brown and square/round are all available options.
A similar process is followed with the bargeboard, where ends are "boxed".
And there you have it - a transformed set of eaves!
