Our complete range of roofline products include Cover Boards, Fascia and Soffit.
Our range includes a range of sizes including our popular 18mm fascia boards and 9 or 10mm cover boards that can be used as a capping board. We also have a wide range of soffits.
And some good news, we're now offering two BRAND NEW colours added across our roofline ranges, coextruded smooth Storm Grey and Dark Grey.
With the wide range of options available, there's no reason not to add more style and strength to your home.
Replacement Fascia Boards
Our replacement fascia boards are used in both new builds and refurbishments - our most popular system is our 18mm which we stock in white, four coloured woodgrain colours (Floplast) and in two shades of smooth grey (Freefoam).
Cover boards which are used to cap over existing timber boards and are the ideal solution when a watertight, mainenance-free solution is desired over existing wooden roofline products.
Soffit boards are used to close off the roof space at the eaves. Our soffits are manufactured from PVC and can be used in new builds and refurbishments in order to add an eyecatching finish to your property
Maintenance Free Solution
The roofline products which are stocked by PVC Cladding 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 Roofline Boards can be shaped, nailed, drilled and cut; however, unlike timber, they do not ignite easily and the spread of flame is limited, and as a result, have a Class 2Y fire rating.
Understanding PVC Fascia & Soffit
You will find the following video helpful if this is your first time working with PVC Fascia systems, as it gives a very brief overview of which elements of the system go where, including an explanation of the key terms that are used to describe each section.
What material is used for roofline products?
PVC-U is the most commonly used material for fascia boards and soffit 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
PVC Cladding 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
The Replacement Fascia stocked by PVC Cladding carries 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 Roofline Products
PVC Cladding stock UPVC Fascia Boards 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. Watch our video below detailing how to measure up your fascia boards.
Installing Your Roofline Products
All Replacement Fascia Boards should be fixed to the rafter ends using 2 x 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.
