repairing poor work
Today we spent most of the day repairing the work of others,
We were asked to replace the black pvc fascia on the gable end of a large house in Rathfarnham.
When we got there we could see that the black pvc fascia was fitted using inferior nails, It was not sealed against water infiltration and was hanging off and some had blown down.
What had happened was; the black pvc fascia had expanded with the heat of the sun, and because of the poor fixings it had warped and pulled on the nails,
The wind caught it then and broke it free to fly in the air landing in the garden.
We fitted new fascia using the proper fixings and sealing it against water infiltration.
This time it will stay up.
