Things To Consider When Investing In Fascia & Soffit Replacements

There are several different ways that you can improve the exterior appearance of your property and more often than not, the changes you make are actually more beneficial than simply giving your home a new look. For example, not only will improvements like installing new windows and doors help with things such as security, but new roofline products can help with energy efficiency, amongst lots of other things too. 


Whilst choosing new windows and doors is something that homeowners tend to be fairly familiar with and it isn’t too difficult to do when it comes to investing in fascia and soffit replacements many don’t know where to even start. So, to help any homeowners who are wanting to give the exterior of their home some TLC, below is a list of important things you should consider when choosing your new soffits and fascia boards. 


How the products will be installed 


When upgrading the fascia boards on your property, you will usually be given two options; you can ‘cap over’ the existing products or you can completely replace them. Whilst it is entirely your choice which you choose, many experts will recommend that you replace your fascia boards and it is worthwhile researching into these two options before you make your decision. 


The material the replacements will be made from 


Deciding on new soffits and fascia boards can be complicated with several styles to choose from and it can be hard to know which will be best in terms of installation, maintenance and aesthetics. However, one of the first and arguably most important things to think about is the material of the replacements. Again, ensure that you’re doing your research on all options. 


The colour of the new soffits and fascia boards


You should take some time to think about which colour will be best for your property too. Whilst the majority of homes will have white roofline products, nowadays fascia and soffit replacements are available in any colour you could imagine. They really can look brilliant in an array of colours too and it is beneficial to look at some different options in person before choosing. 


The other roofline products you can replace 


When installing fascia and soffit replacements, it is often a good time to replace other roofline products too. For example, because your guttering will be taken off to install your new soffits and fascia boards, it makes financial sense to install new products at the same time. So, be sure to take a look at the condition of things like your guttering and downpipes. 


The cost of the fascia and soffit replacements 


Whenever you undertake a home improvement project, it is always important to think about how much you’re able to spend. Take some time to look at common fascia and soffit replacement costs and get some quotes from reputable companies. Remember that the cheapest isn’t always the best and you may want to consider the finance options available to you as well. 


The guarantee provided for the new products 


You should always ensure that your fascia and soffit replacements come with some form of warranty and ideally, roofline products should have at least a 10-year insurance backed guarantee. So, when deciding which products you’re going to invest in, always check the guarantee before you hand over any money. This is undeniably incredibly important. 


Investing in fascia and soffit replacements 


Hopefully, the information above will be beneficial to any homeowners who are wanting to upgrade their soffits and fascia boards. By taking the time to carefully consider everything mentioned above, you should have a clearer idea of what your individual needs and requirements are for your fascia and soffit replacements which will make things easier when navigating the different products available to you in this regard.
