UPVC Roofline Installation - PDF
Take a look at our leaflet on installation tips for UPVC roofline components, in refurbishment and new build replacement projects.
The Standard 9mm Cover Boards stocked by PVC Cladding are the ideal solution when a water tight, maintenance free finish is required over existing wooden roofline products or on existing window boards, as well as a cost effective fascia system for new build projects when used with a timber backing board. Cover Boards are sometimes fitted by home buyers soon after their puchase to cover relatively new timber fascia systems purely to limit the amount of maintenance required in the future.
Our PVC Cover Boards are resistant to the range of different weather conditions experienced in the UK. This ensures that they act as a protective cover to the timber to which they are installed to reduce the risk of deterioration to which wood is prone. Initially this may seem a more expensive option than treating the timber itself however over a short period of return it is quickly evident that the initial outlay on the plastic board is more than covered by the saving in both time and materials for the traditional protective maintenance cycle.
Cover Boards are measured externally from tip to tip. This means that, as the bottom return lip of the cover board is 9mm thick, a 150mm Cover Board will actually cover 141mm of the existing fascia. The short video below explains it visually.
