replacement of fascia boards
This week we carried out a full replacement job on a semi detached house in dundrum.
We removed all the wooden fascia and soffit, and replaced the fascia with an 18mm solid white upvc fascia.
We replace the wooden soffit with a vented solid 10mm upvc soffit.
We fitted eave skirt to front and rear eaves, this is to ensure that any rain infiltration is directed into the gutter and does not end up soaking the rafters causing rot.
You can see in the image how the roof tiles are pushed back and the eave skirt or tray is pushed up under the roof felt.
Notice the thickness of the upvc fascia that is used in the full replacement work compared to the much thinner 10mm or 8mm upvc fascia used in the standard cap over job.
