Fascia Soffit and Guttering
If your fascias are old and worn we can replace them with new, Upvc plastic fascias soffit and gutters. Upvc has become a new standard in this country due to the attractive appearance and easy maintainability when compared to the old wooden alternative.
There are a range of different styles and colours to suit your property and it is recommended that you match the colour to your windows where possible for the most satisfying finish. Our standard white fascias and soffit with black half round guttering costs from as little as £399.99 per side.

10mm Capping board
Capping your fascia
We suggest that old fascias are removed in most cases but if your old fascias are free from rot it is possible to “cap” the existing fascia with a 10mm capping board specifically manufactured for the job. This will decrease the cost of materials and waste disposal and can be a perfectly suitable solution offering the same finish and durability as fascia replacement at a reduced cost when installed properly.
We also offer a service to replace the guttering only if needed.

Cast iron Gutters
Most old houses have cast iron gutters and downpipes. They are very long lasting if painted regularly. The insides should be primed with zinc chromate paint. The finishing coat should be a bituminous paint. They are heavy and their fastenings should be maintained and checked at regular intervals. Today other materials are used in place of cast iron.
PVC gutters are made from unplasticized polyvinyl chloride. The sections and fittings are lighter, easy to fix and do not require painting. The fittings available are the most common used and easy to work with. Half round, square and ogee profile guttering and fittings are available.
An ogee is a half-round adaptor used to join gutters of different profiles. Square gutters have a much greater capacity for carrying water than the half-round type. If you need to replace part of the cast iron gutter, there are adaptors available to connect new PVC guttering to either half round or square cast iron guttering.
It is important to replace any guttering with a type using a similar size channel. When the first guttering was installed, its size was calculated to deal with the amount of water likely to come off the roof during a period of heavy rain. If you choose a smaller channel of gutter, you could experience overflowing water damage at times of heavy rain. Larger channels are not a problem, but will be extra unnecessary cost.
Most domestic rainwater installations use 100mm (4 inch) gutter widths and 62.5mm (2.5 inch) downpipes. There should be a slight slope on the guttering leading to the downpipes. A 1 in 600 slope is ideal for guttering, measured from the base of the facia boards.
