If you have noticed that the soffits on your home are rotting, leaking or otherwise damaged, you may be wondering how to replace them. Luckily, you don’t have to spend a fortune to get your roof back in shape. Rather, you’ll need to invest some time and effort into a simple home improvement project.

Whether you are replacing the soffits or fascia board on your roof, you’ll need to find a qualified and experienced contractor. You also need to ensure that the work is done properly. A bad job could damage the structural integrity of your home. This is why it is best to hire a professional.

When you decide to replace your soffits and fascia, you will need to have a clear idea of the materials and costs involved. The type of material and style of boards you choose will also impact on your final price. There are a number of different options to consider, including UPVC panels, real wood or manufactured wood board. Depending on the size and style of your home, you can expect the cost of replacement to range from PS1200 to PS3000.

Using UPVC panels is a more affordable option than installing real wood or manufactured wood board. This type of product is durable, weatherproof and easy to maintain. However, it doesn’t last as long as its timber counterpart. In addition, it is more susceptible to rot.

UPVC soffits and fascias are designed to last for many years. If you are unsure about the longevity of your existing soffits or fascias, you might want to ask your contractor about the durability of the materials. You should also consider the overall cost of the labour, scaffolding and waste removal.

If your old soffits and fascias are rotting, you may want to consider removing them and replacing them with new boards. You can do this yourself or hire a professional. It isn’t advised to attempt to fix soffits and fascias yourself, as it is dangerous. It can be dirty and can take several days to complete. It is also best to have a friend help you hold a sturdy ladder steady.

If you have asbestos soffits, you should hire a specialist to remove them. Soffits made from asbestos have a tendency to crack and deteriorate over time. The best way to avoid this is to install a breathable membrane between the soffit and fascia boards. This will prevent moisture from entering the cavity of the soffits. If you live in an area with particularly harsh weather, you might also consider installing a ventilation system to keep the soffit and fascia boards dry.

Once you’ve removed your soffits and fascias, you’ll need to remove any roofing felt. You can do this by using a Stanley knife. Once the felt has been removed, you can cut through the soffits and fascias with a sharp knife. You should use a pry bar to dislodge the boards, as well. Alternatively, you can hire a skip.
