Did you know? The wider 350mm and 450mm boards are Double Boards (also known as ’Box End’ boards). So they have a lip on the top and bottom edge. This means you can maximise the use of material if both a left and right box end is required.
Why Choose our PVC-u Roofline Products?
Fascias and soffits play a crucial role in protecting the roof space. Neglected timber fascias and soffits can spoil the look of your home and cause expensive damage to your roof rafters.
Our PVC-u fascias, soffits and roof trims come with a 20-year guarantee (10 year for coloured laminated boards) against discolouration, warping and cracking and will give a property a new lease of life.

How it's used
Please consider the following points when fitting fascia board.
- Ensure that the rafters are level and spaced at maximum of 600mm centres.
- Secure board directly (no need for timber substrate) using 2 x 50/60mm stainless steel fixing nails per rafter.
- When joining using corner trims, joint trims or angle trims, the boards should be cut back to allow expansion. White profile should be cut back 5mm on each edge, while coloured or laminated boards should be cut back 8mm per edge.
- Trims should be glued to one side, with the other side free for any expansion or contraction.
- Guttering should be secured to every third rafter, although these boards are thick enough to hold extra fixings securely at other points.
- Foiled and laminated boards should be fitted in lengths of 2.5m maximum to accommodate expansion requirements, particularly in south facing elevations.
- Abutting boards should be fitted with a 10mm expansion gap and cover trims only stuck to one of the adjoining boards.
- Normal hand tools can be used for drilling and cutting but we recommended a fine tooth bladed saw.
- PVC-U products should not be fitted below 0°C as the boards may become brittle.
Foam and rigid profiles should not require any further maintenance other than the occasional wash down with a non-scratch, mild detergent and water. They are resistant to most acids and alkalis but can be damaged by solvents. Great care should be taken when in contact with creosote or bitumen-based products as these will cause staining of the profiles. Painting is not recommended on foam profiles unless done by an approved contractor.
