Some people have capping boards fitted over existing rotting timber fascias rather than having the old timber completely removed and replaced with new UPVC fascias because it's the cheaper option.
However, the rotten timber is still there deteriorating more every year. Eventually, the nails come loose and your old fascias become exposed and unattached.
Mike Carroll Roofing and Building will always recommend complete roofline replecement - fascia, soffit and guttering. It will save you money in the long run.
Wood facia or uPVC fascia?
Wood fascia is porous so it will need replacing eventually, regardless of how well it is protected.
UPVC facia, however, will not rot and is impervious to woodworm and other vermin. Nor will UPVC fascia discolour or need repainting. It remains maintenance free for up to 40 years - apart from needing the occasional clean with warm soapy water.
And the replacement Freefoam facia board we fit is covered by a transferable 30 year guarantee.
