Replacing Fascias & Soffits on Older Homes

Many times homeowners in the UK have a structure that is literally hundreds of years old. It may or may not be a listed building, but chances are the fascias and soffits may be constructed from wood. There was a time, not too far in the past, when most fascias were wooden which led to a number of potential problems. One thing to be aware of is that today’s roofing systems are built to withstand environmental damage much more readily than wooden fascias and soffits which is why it pays to consider changing them out at the first sign of problems.

Unfortunately, there is also some amount of misunderstanding when it comes to replacing fascias because few are made from wood these days. It is actually quite possible to get products constructed from uPVC that blend well with a number of architectural styles and older buildings are no exception. Common colours to choose from are white, black, rosewood and light oak. These blend well with any style home and are manufactured in such a way as to be almost indistinguishable from wood. One of the best products on the market is manufactured by Homeline and they can be found at unbeatable prices on

Keep in mind that although fascias and soffits are part of the roofing system, it is quite possible to make a DIY project out of repairing or replacing them. When visiting the Fascia Expert site there are instructions to browse through as well as a forum where you can ask questions and receive expert advice. In fact, many times you won’t even need to ask because there are others who have posed the same question before so that the answer is already on hand. With everything on hand from advice to products, there really is no reason to look anywhere else.
