We are suppliers and fitters of replacement Fascia, Soffits, Bargeboards, Box ends and Guttering in Weston Super Mare, Bristol, Somerset and North Somerset.
If you are not familiar with these terms, the picture here should help and I have included an explanation further down this page.
Fascia is fitted to your property to provide support for the last row of tiles and a fixing point for the gutters. They are also fitted to protect the ends of the roofing joists from the weather.
We use marine grade stainless steel fixings, to fit the fascias to the ends of the rafters, providing an attractive and maintenance free finish that also provides important support for the tiles and gutters.
Where the end of the rafters or roofing joists have become perished due rot spreading from the old wooden fascia, we cut out any rot and treat the bare edges with wood preserver. We then install a new piece of tanalised rafter.
Can new plastic facia and cladding be fitted over the old wooden fascia.
Without taking off the old wood cladding it is difficult to see if the wood, mainly at the back, is rotten with the potential of spreading to the ends of the rafters. Most wooden facia and cladding I have removed have shown signs of rot on the back of the board.
Over-cladding is cheaper in the short-term, but in the long term-often means having additional work carried out to the rafter ends due to the rot spreading.
Over-cladding the wood is easier and cheaper and is preferred by non specialist companies and should be reflected in the price quoted, But usually ends up as a complete waste of money when the wood rots. Bear this in mind when choosing the cheapest quote.
uPVC fascia is mounted at the point where the roof meets the outer walls of the house and is the main board that carries the gutter.
The Soffit board is fitted under the fascia board and can be ventilated to allow the flow of air into the roof area. Alternatively ventilation can be over the top of the fascia board. Without adequate ventilation, condensation will form in the roof void increasing the risk of timber decay.
We can supply and fit ‘traditional plain’ Soffit Boards or ‘tongue and groove Soffit Board’, in a wide variety of styles and colours.
The gutters on your property channel the rain water from your roof into drains or a soak away. It is important the gutters are fitted correctly and the fall levels are set correctly to get rid of the water not hold it in the gutters.

I can fit a bird guard if required.
Roofing tiles that have a profile provide an entry point for birds to get into the roof space for small birds.
Gutter guards can be supplied and fitted where the leaves from nearby trees could block up the guttering.
