Soffit Boards

Soffit boards are the boards that run horizontally from the back edge of the bottom of the fascia board to the top of the wall, closing off the roof space at the eaves.

Soffit Boards Technical Specification

The UPVC Soffit Boards stocked by PVC Cladding carry a product performance and discolouration guarantee of 10 years.

Our FloPlast soffit boards carry a Class 2Y surface spread of flame rating in accordance to BS 476-7: 1997, while our hollow soffit boards have achieved a Class 1Y rating. 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.

Furthermore, each style soffit comes in varying lengths and seven main colours; white, black ash, golden oak, rosewood, anthracite grey, storm grey & dark grey (except vented soffits.)

Soffit Boards FAQs

What is a soffit board?

Soffit boards are long horizontal boards that fit under the roofline, perpendicular to the wall. Along with fascia boards or cover boards, soffit boards give the roofline a completely weatherproof seal.

Is UPVC suitable for soffit boards?

Because of its high durability and easy to maintain nature, UPVC is a great choice of material for soffit boards.

Which do I install first – fascia or soffit?

You should first install fascia or capping boards and then soffit after that, and finally gutters!

Is soffit waterproof?

UPVC soffit boards are completely waterproof, meaning that no moisture can penetrate the core of the boards – this prevents the boards from rotting, splitting, or warping over time.

Soffit Boards Installation

Plain & vented soffit boards should be fixed using 40mm Polytop pins at intervals of no more than 600mm for white & 400mm for woodgrain boards. Fix hollow soffit boards with stainless steel cladding pins, which are hidden by the tongue & groove effect.
