UPVC Fascias, Soffits & Guttering

What are your options, and which system would suit you best?


The most commonly used system is very simplistic within its initial approach the ‘Capped’ procedure involves, as the name suggests, ‘capping’ over old timber fascia board and soffit with new UPVC alternatives. This involves inspecting the existing timber framework, replacing any rotting or rotten boards then replacing them with new high-grade timbers. The new Fascia, Soffits and guttering are then professionally ‘Capped’ over the existing or replaced timber frame-work to ensure a water-tight and maintenance free finish.

The ‘Capped’ system is generally advised for clients looking for a more economical option, where their property is no longer than 30-40 years old. This is due to the fact the timber frame-work is usually solid enough to fix the new high-grade plastics securely, complete with starter trims, jointers and relevant caps to leave a stunning finish every time.

Lord Roofing and Groundworks Ltd also offer the most professional and comprehensive procedure possible. This ensures not only the maximum lifetime for your newly installed system, but also eliminates any issues with regards to potential water ingress caused by a lesser fitted system.

Our guttering was old and kept leaking. I bit the bullet and called Lord Roofing to come and fix it. They did a fantastic job and we are very grateful.

Cheap UPVC plastics are generally manufactured using a lead-based additive, the problem with these cheap UPVC plastics is not only are they prone to fade over a time at a much more accelerated rate than a high-grade plastic.They are also likely to change colour, with white plastics transforming into an orange/pink appearance.

The installation of the correct fascia, soffit and guttering system is as important as the products used therein. Lord Roofing and Groundworks Ltd only use the highest grades of UPVC plastics, working alongside both GAP, National Plastics, Eurocell and Swish Building exclusively, to ensure not only the highest level of detail is upheld within the installation process, but also the best products on the market are used in conjunction.

LORD Roofing and Grounds Works only employ Master Roofers and high-level joiners that are vastly experienced to complete every project to a beautifully stunning, perfectly crafted finish, every time.
