Time to replace your Fascia and Soffit?
As you drive into your home are you looking up at dirty flaking paintwork on your fascia and soffit and dismayed by its unsightliness?
Are your neighbours ones gleaming white and making yours look even worse? Having bright new fascia and soffit on your home will make it look more appealing and attractive. Whether you are improving your home with a mind to selling or just want to enjoy having a spruced up look to your home, this is one improvement that is equal to a facelift for a house.
Hidden Problem of Rot
According to independent research more than 90% of homes should be replacing their fascia and soffits, particularly properties built over 20 years ago. Originally made from low grade softwood timber, they are prone to rot and so require regular maintenance, something that many homeowners leave until it is too late. But even those who try to keep them in good repair only paint the outside. So superficially the fascia looks better, but the damage is really being done on the inside. Out of sight, out of mind - rot spreads to the rafters and joists and eats away at the structure of your roof and home with the potential to cause structural damage. It makes sense to take precautionary action and replace old timbers before it gets to this stage.
Maintaining wooden fascia and soffit is an ongoing task. Most of us don’t want to work at heights so that involves hiring a painter and waiting for a dry day to get the work done. But they are only painting the outside part that you can see and could be masking the issue without knowing it. Even if the fascia looks better, the damage caused by rot can be continuing on the inside so the only viable option is replacement to a PVCu product.
Cap Over existing ?
Some cheaper suppliers will put low quality PVC over the existing wood. For those unsuspecting customers they will be delighted with the ‘bargain’ they have gotten. However, the issue is now worse than before as the already damp wood is enclosed and has no chance of drying out.
