Hello! Welcome to my blog. My name is Col. I live in Perth and I have a passion for construction. I am pretty useless when it comes to construction work so I tend to leave it to the experts. However, I find that there is nothing more pleasing than seeing a team of construction workers complete a job. Over the years, I have hired many different types of construction worker and they have all taken the time to chat with me. During these conversations, I have learnt so pretty interesting things which I will be exploring on this blog. Enjoy!

Have You Consider the Advantages of Fascia Cover Installation?

Ethan Burton

When you are renovating the exterior of your property, one area where you will want to devote particular attention is your roof. Your roof is responsible for protecting your home and ensuring that everything inside stays safe and dry. You will want to think about your roof tiles or slates and whether they will need to be replaced or repaired. While you are looking at your roof it is always a good idea to take a look at the overall structure. In particular, you should consider the fascia of your home and whether it needs attention. You might decide that the entire fascia needs to be replaced but before you make that decision it is worth considering whether speaking to someone offering fascia cover installation would be a better option. Here are three reasons why opting for fascia cover installation could be the right choice for your roof.

Fascia cover installation reduces maintenance time and costs

One of the most troublesome problems with fascias is that they need to be painted from time to time. Painting any part of your home can be a hassle but because a fascia is mounted at roof level it can be particularly problematic. Instead of struggling to paint your fascia regularly why not opt for a fascia cover installation with a material such as PVC which doesn't need to be painted? As long as there are no major areas of rot then covering your fascia board is a simple process and it will reduce your maintenance for years to come.

Fascia cover installation is cheaper

Instead of paying to replace your worn fascia boards you can cover them for a fraction of the price. A fascia cover installation can be completed more quickly than a full fascia replacement and will look good for years to come. Don't believe the myth that covering your fascia boards will leave them damp under the cover and that they will therefore rot. This is not true as long as the cover installation is conducted by a professional. If the fascia cover installation is completed to a high standard the work will last for many years without any sign of rot in the fascia.

Fascia cover installation includes new gutters

In most cases, the price you are quoted for a fascia cover installation will include the cost of replacing your guttering as well so that is another aspect of your home maintenance about which you will no longer have to worry.
