Fascias and Gutterings Ulverston
Fascias are attached around the edge of the rafters on the outside of your building and typically come with guttering attached to facilitate water drainage. Traditionally Fascia’s can be made from UPVC (Plastic) or can be made from Redwood. Other materials used are metal (Thin sheets) or even stone. All materials have their pros and cons but ultimately it is all about aesthetics. cs. The use of a scaffold is usually required and this will add to the cost of installation. This type of work can be carried out DYI but it does require a fair bit of preparation not to mention the erection of scaffolding etc. If it is for a new build project, timber rafters are required to be located at a little under 2ft (1.96ft) or 600mm apart for all white Fascias, and no more than 1.5 ft or 400mm for foiled Fascias. Foils are spaced at shorter distances as they absorb more heat than White so need to be fixed more regularly.
Guttering can be made from Aluminium, Copper, Vinyl, and Galvanized Steel. But are usually composite plastic moulds which allow for colour variation and style. They come in three main designs known as K-Style, Half-Round, and Box gutter. K style is the most common style used on modern houses and has a unique shape on the front edge known as the crown. The Half-Round is typically the most expensive as it requires special brackets and fixings and may need to be fitted by a professional. The Box Gutter drains the water away via a downpipe built into it. And are a typical feature on the roofs of commercial buildings.
It is recommended that an inspection of the Facias and soffits should be carried out about twice a year. Spotting any early signs of wear and tear will save you from dealing with problems further down the line. The sort of damage that will need immediate attention will be sagging joints, missing or broken pieces and rotting wood. It is recommended that you seek expert advice when looking at how to tackle this kind of wear and tear. Most local building firms will be happy to come and take a look and give recommendations and what kind of costs would be involved.
A typical 3-bedroom semi-detached house with two floors, for instance, may require scaffolding to replace soffits and fascia boards. This kind of work typically requires the erection of scaffolding. Scaffolding costing can come to over a third of the cost. If scaffolding is required then it is a good idea and cost-effective to make use of the scaffolding once it’s up. Checking if any other high-up jobs require attention such as the roof or Velux windows, for instance.
