How to install Fascias and Soffits Guide & Guttering

Step 1

  • First of all we remove the gutters and slide back the first row of roof tiles.

Step 2

  • We then completely remove the fascias and soffits and trimback any damaged felt.

Step 3

  • We check the condition of the rafter feet and repair as necessary. Once we are happy we fix the soffit board tight against the brickwork, this provides a clean finish and sturdy edge where the soffit meets the brickwork.

Step 4

  • After the soffits are fixed we can now put the fascia boards on. We fix the fascia boards using 65mm ring shank nails which are stainless steel to avoid any rust marks on your fascia boards in the months and years to come. We use a double fix in to every rafter to ensure the ultimate fix.Fascias Soffits & Guttering

Step 5

  • Now that the fascia and soffits are complete, we can now install the rainwater system. There are a wide range of styles and colours available this is a prime example of the classic half round system. We fix the guttering with a slight fall to allow the water to drain away.Fascias Soffits & Guttering

Step 6

  • After the rain water system is complete we install the Eaves Protector, this provides a permanent replacement for the old perished felt that we cut away in step 2. It will not deteriorate or perish unlike felt. It also allows the roof space to breath and has flexible combs (where specified) to act as a rodent guard to keep birds and other unwanted pests out. (Certain locations and types of tile do not allow for use of the Eves Protector

Fascias & Soffits ventilation options

  • For Ventilation we use either a ventilated soffit board…

  • Or an ‘Over-Fascia’ vent that is cut in to the top of the fascia and sits underneath the Eves Protector
