Fascias & Soffits With A Difference: Part 1

Today, we have started a fascia and soffit installation @ 1A Tithe Close Stoke Golding, Nuneaton Warwickshire.

The current Fascias have been created in a unique style to suite the property, and the customer was under the impression that this could only be done in wood, and that if they wanted the benefits of upvc they would have to settle for the plain plastic type look with the visible fixings and plastic trim covers!

What we aim to do here is create an exact replica of the original (except in golden oak colour) with a shed one piece board, without trims or fixings visible.. I wont let on to many details at this stage, but take a look at the pictures we post in the next couple of weeks!!

Another obstacle in our path is the Tudor cladding boards shown on the picture, I have steered away from replacing these for years as there has not been a double edged board available to replace them, what i have seen in the past, is a fascia board cut to size and the white exposed cut edge, has a wood effect trim stuck to it. This looks ok when first done, but definitely is no match for the sun and rain, the fascia buckles and the trims peel off, looking worse than the wood it replaced. There are some plastic board companies that are making a double edge board but it is only available in set widths so it will look too bulky or too slender on the house.

I have found a maintenance free weatherboard product that has been mainly used on commercial projects over the last decade, the benefit of this apart from looking like wood and being totally maintenance free, is the fact i can have it machined to the exact size for the job it is intended. I am hoping to get some pictures posted shortly..

If you would like to see our fitters at work feel free to visit them on site and see for yourself why we're a bit different!

Thanks for reading the article.
