Fascias, Soffits & Guttering
A well-maintained roofline is important in protecting your house against the elements and making sure your roof doesn’t leak. Your fascias, soffits and guttering say a lot about your property, with our products you can rest assured that you will never have to face the ladders again to re-paint or repair either fascia or soffit and your home will look distinctly smart! PDP Mechanical and Electrical’s maintenance-free uPVC range comes in numerous styles and colours we have something to suit everyone.
Soffits, fascias and guttering in old houses are generally made from wood and iron. Now modern plastics ensure that they stay looking good for much longer due to their weatherproof qualities and durability.
uPVC is a very durable, long-lasting material, indeed the BRE – Building Research Establishment quotes a reference service life for uPVC household roofing products of over 30 years. In practice we find pvc-u products lasting and looking good year after year.
Fascias are the long, straight boards that run along the lower edge of the roof, fixed directly to the roof trusses. They support the bottom row of roof tiles and carry the guttering. uPVC fascia boards used by PDP Mechanical and Electrical are maintenance free and of course they will not rot, warp or crack.
Soffits lie underneath the fascias giving them great support. They also serve a vital function of providing ventilation to the roofs of centrally heated homes. Without adequate ventilation condensation would form in the roof void increasing the risk of timber decay.
Like fascias and soffits your existing guttering and downpipes can, over time deteriorate leaving your home looking old, worn and tatty.
