Fascia Boards

Fascia boards, also referred to as "Jumbo Fascias", are used both in new build and refurbishment projects. We stock a variety of different styles of fascia boards, our most popular profile is the 18mm Fascia system which has a rounded bottom edge and can take in a soffit board via incorporated grooves. Other alternative styles include Bull Nosed and decorative Ogee fascia.

Features and Benefits of UPVC Fascia Boards

We sell UPVC Fascia Boards manufactured by FloPlast and Freefoam, two of the top plastic manufacturers in the UK and Europe. Both of which boast a number of awards and certificates for quality and reliability which are backed up industry-leading guarantees.

A Maintenance-Free Solution With Fascia Boards

Our fascia boards offer a virtually maintenance-free Roofline solution as their outer skins are resistant to climatic extremes and will not allow moisture to penetrate the core of the Board. This ensures that they will not deteriorate in the way that traditional timber fascia will, through rot or warping, and all these benefits come without the need for applying protective treatments or painting.

Much like timber, our UPVC Fascia Boards can be shaped, nailed, drilled and cut; however, unlike timber, they do not ignite easily and the spread of flame is limited, as a result, they have a Class 2Y fire rating.

What material is used for fascia?

PVC-U is the most commonly used material for fascia boards on houses. Both  FloPlast’s and Freefoam’s PVC fascias are virtually maintenance-free and they will not rot, warp, crack or erode. Floplast’s boards are available in white, black ash, anthracite grey, rosewood and golden oak and we stock both storm grey and dark grey fascia from Freefoam. Floplast’s white fascia boards are guaranteed for 20 years, whilst the woodgrain and Freefoam’s storm and dark grey fascias come with a 10-year guarantee.

Replacement Fascia Colour Finishes

We stock a range of seven different colours of PVC fascia, with the most popular White, four different Woodgrain style colours being Anthracite Grey, Black Ash, Golden Oak and Rosewood, as well as two smooth finish styles in Storm Grey and Dark Grey. These can all be found in our Standard 18mm Fascia range. Ogee and Bull Nosed  currently available in white.

Guarantee and Fire Rating of UPVC Fascia

Fascia boards from FloPlast carry a 10-year guarantee in relation to product performance and discolouration.

Is PVC Fascia Safe?

  • Our FloPlast fascia, cover and soffit boards carry a Class 2Y surface spread of flame rating in accordance with BS 476-7: 1997. 
  • Kestrel bullnosed 22mm boards carry a Class 1 surface spread of flame rating in accordance with BS 476-7: 1987.
  • 16mm boards carry a Class 1 surface spread of flame rating in accordance with BS 476-7: 1997.
  • Freefoam fascia conforms with Class 1 resistance to fire propagation and Class 1Y resistance to spread of flames specification requirements.

This means that although the spread-of-flame across the surface of PVC is limited, the material does tend to char and may fall away when exposed to fire.

However, it is unlikely that the roof trim system will significantly affect the overall fire performance on any roof on which it is installed. Where it is normal practice to carry the eaves box over, between dwellings, it is important that the box is fire stopped at compartment walls with a proprietary fire stop material.

Measuring PVC Fascias

Our UPVC fascia boards are available in widths ranging from 150mm (6") up to 250mm (10"), however larger sizes are available so please contact us if so required. All our UPVC Fascia Boards are available as standard in 5m lengths.

Installing Replacement Fascia

All fascia boards should be fixed to the rafter ends using 2 x 65mm Polytop nails located in line with each other vertically -  these fixings should be horizontally spaced no more than 600mm apart to ensure a secure installation. When installing any Woodgrain, Anthracite or Black boards these fixing centres should be reduced to a maximum distance of 400mm to allow for the additional expansion of coloured boards.

A wide range of instructional sheets and short videos like the ones above can found in our Fascia Installation section. If you have further questions please do not hesitate to contact us with your enquiry.
