The Benefits of Replacing or Upgrading With uPVC Fascias, Soffits and Guttering

The roofline of a property is often neglected – it can be a case of out of sight, out of mind. But this ignores the important roles that soffits, fascias and guttering play in keeping your home dry and safe. The UK has a temperate climate, which means that conditions are liable to be wet all year round. And if damp is constantly entering your home through a vulnerable roof, then your property could suffer from structural damage caused by rot and decay. 

So if your soffits or fascias are looking worse for wear or your guttering has been damaged by the elements, it’s important you visit a builders merchants specialising in roofing supplies, to help make your home as watertight as possible. Here are three additional key advantages to installing new uPVC fascias and soffits; or upgrading your guttering.

Long Lasting, Low Maintenance

Once installed, today’s uPVC soffits, fascias and guttering are highly durable – they will stand the test of time, therefore offering great value for money over the years as they prevent rainwater and wind from entering your property. Provided you buy from a reputable source in the first place, good quality plastics for guttering and roofline protection need very little maintenance. Unlike wooden fittings, uPVC soffits and fascias will not need repainting during their lifetime, and nor will they corrode and rot like wooden options.

Improve Your Energy Efficiency

Fascias and soffits in particular offer weatherproofing to your property. As well as protecting against rain entering the building, they will prevent wind and even snow. That helps you restrict draughts and maintain comfortable temperatures within your home even in the worst of weather conditions, which can assist with the reduction of heating bills. You’re not only saving money, but you’re helping save the planet too!

Keeping Up Appearances

Shabby, deteriorating guttering can seriously detract from the value of your property. It’s all about kerb appeal to prospective buyers, and if your house looks unloved on the exterior, it can put people off from making an offer. Even if you’re not thinking of selling in the near future, having new guttering, soffits and fascias installed can improve the appearance of your home, allowing you to hold your head up among your neighbours! uPVC fascias and soffits are also available in a wide range of colours, meaning you can find one that will complement your property. 

Finally, along with these other advantages, uPVC soffits, fascias and guttering are all more cost effective than other alternatives and can be installed easily and quickly. There’s no wonder that these plastic options are among the most popular among homeowners nowadays.
