Why Buy UPVC Fascia and Soffits
Fascia is a term which generally describes any horizontal surface which spans across the top of columns or across the top of a wall. Traditional fascia has always been installed using wood but because of environmental costs and awareness recently people are opting for UPVC which is much cheaper than wood. Other reasons for using UPVC fascia is there is much less maintenance involved where wood has had to be painted yearly depending on location the maintenance costs when compared to UPVC are staggering.
UPVC can be cleaned once a year to maintain its look and doesn’t have to be touched once installed as it is very weather proof. UPVC is also available in a wide variety of color’s which are unavailable in wood so you can opt for white or red and with modern technology there are foiled boards available which replicate the look of authentic wood whether this be light oak or mahogany. Although metal and aluminum fascia is now available UPVC trumps them in terms of looks and costs so when choosing fascia always make sure the profile used to manufacture is made of virgin not recycled plastic to get a fresher colorful look.
There are still many people that opt for repair of wooden fascia but the costs of replacing existing fascia rather than repairing it are almost exactly the same when labor and materials are taken into consideration depending on the size of your property. Vents are essential when installing new fascia and make sure that when installed they are put all around the soffits of the house to allow for air circulation this is a very important factor of new fascia and should not be discounted or ignored at any cost. The vents allow the house to “breathe”. Move air in and around the underside of the roof. Keeps house warmer in winter and cooler in summer.UPVC Fascias And Soffits
