UPVC fascias and soffits in Whitchurch are used to protect the edges of the roof and stop roofing and tiles lifting in very strong winds and, of course, to present a neat and finished look to your building. UPVC material is weather proof and very hard wearing. Although it is not biodegradable it is recyclable. It is also fire resistant and withstands chemical erosion. Fascia boards need to be strong as they usually hold up the last row of tiles on a roof and also carry the guttering so in years past they were made of wood. Wood, however has a tendency to rot in normal weather conditions and needs to be maintained regularly and often replaced. UPVC fascias are durable, affordable and you will never need to replace them as they do not wear.
In Whitchurch, fascias and soffits are now mostly made of UPVC. Some soffit boards have ventilation holes to allow air circulation in the roof to stop condensation forming and rotting the timber of the roof trusses. Soffit covers your rafters and give an aesthetically pleasing finish to your roof as well as protecting the wooden eaves of your roof from the weather. In a severe storm, without soffits, the wind would blow the rain into your attic space and damage the rafters and ceilings of your home as well as remove your homes roof. There are other materials that one can use and aluminium soffits are the second most popular used although they are more costly and are susceptible to bending and denting.
