Just below the roof tiles and behind the guttering is the area of your home known as the roof line. This consists of three main boards-Fascia, Soffit and Bargeboard; which, because they are in such an exposed and vulnerable position, need to withstand the force of the great British weather. The chances are that the roofline on your home is made from timber and the chances are that your roofline may not be up to the job.
By replacing your roofline with a PVCu roofline and cladding system you will be able to keep one step ahead of rot and forget all about painting. The PVCu used is precision-designed to be a timber replacement product without any of the problems associated with timber. Our extrusions carry the BBA approval which gives total confidence, for a long lasting product that will not rot, peel, flake or discolour and best of all it never needs painting.
At Alexander Laine Ltd we can carry out the updating of your fascia's, soffits and bargeboards from timber to UPVC. You can choose from white, light oak or rosewood to compliment your existing windows. We would normally remove all the timber completely before replacing with the UPVC, we can however carry out the capping of your timber (this method leaves the timber in place, we would however recommend replacing not covering) if you are on a tighter budget. All the guttering and down pipes would normally be changed during the installation.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our workmanship. As in all industries there is a correct and an incorrect way to do a job. You can see from the photographs below what a difference this can make to the finished work and the overall asthestic look of your home.
The left hand picture is of a box end that has been fitted by an inexperienced company, they have cut corners and saved money by making the box end out of many bits of fascia they had left over, hence why there are four odd pieces fitted around the barge board and no finishing trim.
The right hand picture, installed by Alexander Laine Fascias, you will see that the box end has been cut from one piece of box end fascia section and has finishing trim to the corners, giving a much neater finish. This is how an experienced company would leave an installation.
