Most homes in Scotland have fascias, soffits and bargeboards, and many have panels of softwood timber cladding. As with timber windows, these need regular expensive maintenance with painting or ongoing repairs - and it takes a lot of time and effort to maintain these hard to reach areas.
Too often we have seen customers having capping boards fitted over existing softwood / timber fascias rather than having the old rotten timber completely removed and replaced with uPVC fascias. This may seem the more cost effective option when presented to you in the short term, but over the long run is it really such a good idea? The rotten wood hasn’t gone anywhere; it is still there, deteriorating even more each year. Eventually the nails will come loose due to rotted and infested wood, leaving your fascias exposed and unsecured.
As we all know, wood is a very porous material. Once water has breached the outer layer, it is only a matter of when and not if it will need replacing. This then paves the way for woodworm and structural damage. uPVC rooflines will not rot, will never need painting, will not discolour and will remain maintenance free for many years to come - requiring the occasional clean with warm soapy water.
