choosing soffit, fascia, guttering

A question we are most often asked is what would you recommend! The answer can be different for each type of house and the area in which it's located.
For instance; The first thing I tell the client is that we do all sorts and types of fascia, soffit, and gutters, We stock upvc fascia, aluminium fascia, upvc soffit, aluminium soffit, upvc gutters, aluminium gutters, cast aluminium gutters, cast iron gutters.
with dark coloured upvc gutters we often find over time that a gap has appeared between the joints, this is usually caused by the heat of the sun causing the upvc gutter to expand and contract making it creep from the joint, so sometimes the aluminium gutter is preferable in this case.

We also stock aluminium downpipes, cast iron downpipes, and upvc downpipes.
We hold such a stock so that we can give the client a choice without trying to sell any particular type, that way the client can choose without pressure and we can give an honest opinion.
For instance; a seamless aluminium gutter could be the correct choice where there is a long run of gutter required, because we can roll out the gutter to the correct length thereby removing the need for joiners which in turn removes the risk of leaks in the future.
On the other hand: if the house has several corners and short runs it might be desirable to use upvc gutters.

With soffit and fascia there is a choice of upvc or aluminium.
The advantage of upvc over aluminium in this case is that the upvc comes in 5 metre lengths therebye reducing the amount of joints as the aluminium fascia comes in three metre lengths.
however if the client wants a fascia that is environmentaly friendly then the aluminium fascia would be the choice as aluminium is a 100% re-cycleable material,
also the coloured aluminium never fades where the upvc can eventually fade especially the dark colours where they are exposed to the sun.

The aluminium soffit comes pre vented so that can be an advantage over the pvc, but the pvc does not conduct electricity so where there are cables it is preferrable.
