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
Fit directly onto existing timber fascia if they are in good condition. Otherwise, the compromised timber fascia should be removed and replaced with a timber backboard with timber fillets for extra support. The cladding board would then be added to this backboard.
Please consider the following:
- 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.
- This 9mm capping board should be fixed with 30/40mm polytop fixing pins.
Capping Board as Internal Window Cill Cover
Capping Board is also commonly used as a window cill cover to improve the appearance of damaged timber window board. For this application, the capping board should be cut to size and mitred as necessary and then stuck down with a quick grab adhesive like Saves Nails.
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.
