Soffits and fascias play an important role in keeping your home pest free and dry, they are also highly important from an aesthetic point of view. Having sparkling sofﬁts and fascias makes your home look far more attractive and appealing to buyers. If you are thinking of selling your home, then sprucing up the outside of your house is a good investment.
Replacing soffits and fascias that are old or worn helps to protect your roof and walls, preventing damp and water damage. Clean new gutters and ornate fascias can greatly increase the value of your home and will impress the surveyor too.
Fascias are traditionally a softwood board which is mounted to the exposed edges of your rafters, however, in recent years, this has been replaced with high-grade uPVC as softwood has a tendency to rot. The purpose of a fascia is to protect and seal the roof and the interior of your home from exposure to the elements, to support roof tiles at eaves level and to provide support for the guttering. Fascias also serve a cosmetic purpose, and are much nicer to look at than exposed rafters.
