Protecting the exterior of your property – a no brainer

Detached Double Glazed Home + UPVC Cladding, Fascias and Soffits
UPVC Cladding, Fascias & Soffits
Maintaining your existing woodwork is not only time consuming, but over time costs a considerable amount of money too. Gone are the days where ladders can legally be used to paint your rooflines if they are over a certain height above ground level due to current health and safety requirements, expensive scaffolding or “cherry pickers” must now more often than not be used.

Rotting cladding or fascias and soffits or rusting cast iron steel downpipes can really let a property down both aesthetically and in value terms. Rotten woodwork can also cause structural damage leading to woodworm and could encourage vermin. If this is the case it makes good economic sense, whether you intend to stay in your home or move, to replace old rotting roofline with high quality, weather resistant, long-lasting UPVC roofline products that need neither painting nor repairing, no matter what the weather.

The good thing about the many high quality ranges of UPVC roofline products that are available in the UK market today is that once the work is done, you never have to give it a second thought. Good quality UPVC fascias, soffits, bargeboards, cladding, tudor board, gutters or downpipes do not warp, crack, flake or peel, so if you do fit roofline products, make sure you have really decent ones installed so you never have to do it ever again. Check that any white, coloured or foiled roofline products you are considering having fitted are guaranteed against discolouration, so you can invest knowing the installation will actually not only protect your property long term, but actually improve it, both in terms of looks and value.

By fitting high quality PVCu roofline cladding, fascias and soffits along with plastic guttering and downpipes, rather than “cheap” alternatives, a property owner demonstrates that they genuinely care about the look of their property, adding value to their home, whilst creating kerb appeal for any potential future purchasers.

As with all home improvement, the choice is yours, but lets face it, whether you are planning to never move or to sell up, replacing your old timber roofline or cladding with maintenance free PVC-U gives your property a deserved face lift and rejuvenates its overall look. To help you achieve this, company’s like Hazlemere Windows offer a vast range of colours and styles of tried and tested UPVC roofware that come with decent installation guarantees.

Finally, what ever you do don’t paper over the cracks. Too often I have come across customers having capping boards fitted over existing timber fascias rather than having the old timber removed and completely replaced. This may seem the more cost effective option when presented to you in the short term, but over the long run it really is not a good idea. The rotten wood hasn’t gone anywhere, it is still there sealed in, deteriorating even more by the year. I am sure you don’t want your property to become a “home” for unwanted insects and pests, as eventually the nails will come loose due to rotted and infested wood, leaving your fascias exposed and unsecured, not to mention that on some cases you can invalidate a guarantee if you don’t completely remove exiting timber, which enables the PVC-U roofline to do a long lasting job and perform to the high standards it is designed to achieve.
