The Problem With Having Timber Fascias
The materials used in building construction have changed over the years to reflect new skills and techniques and also developments in material technology. Sometimes the motivation is to discover and use materials which are cheaper, rather than longer-lasting, but done in the right way, a new material can be both.
If we look at the materials used for fascias and soffits, this is an example that is mirrored in many other features of a property construction. This is mainly that, if a new material lasts much longer than the previous material, then it can effectively pay for itself.
This is the case with PVCue fascias and soffits materials used by Northern Roofline. These are proven to last much longer than the traditional timber materials previously used and are therefore a sound investment you won’t regret. This guarantee can be up to 35 years, depending on what colour you choose.
Why timber fascias are a problem
Regular problems found with timber fascias and soffits include:
- Colour fade so the wood needs re-painting on a regular basis
- Splitting, cracking and warping leading to the property’s structural integrity being open to question
- Timber needs much more regular inspection
The PVCue fascias and soffits used by Northern Roofline contain no lead or tin-based stabilisers, we only use Calcium Zinc-based stabilisers, so the colour is retained far longer using these higher quality components, and the integrity of the materials is also maintained for far longer. This means that you are not required to get a pair of ladders out every year and risk your health and safety by inspecting the condition of your fascias and soffits. Furthermore, you are not required to get a paint brush and tin out to re-paint them either, or to pay a professional to do it for you if you don’t fancy working at heights.
For many people this is a significant benefit, and quite apart from the maintenance issues the PVCue materials resolve, you also know that the external appeal of your home is going to remain the same for a number of years. Put simply, once you have installed PVCue fascias and soffits, you can pretty much forget about them.
Long-lasting low-maintenance fascias and soffits
With timber materials, there is a constant worry that your fascias and soffits are going to be affected by adverse weather and that the kerb appeal of your home is going to deteriorate. Once the structure of timber materials starts to go and moisture takes hold, there is no going back and they will usually only get worse. However, with our PVCue fascias and soffits, you have the reassurance that physically and visually, they are not going to change any time soon.
