Fascias and Soffits

What are Fascias and Soffits?

Fascias and soffits are important components of a building’s roofing system. They are typically found along the eaves and are essential for protecting the roof and the interior of the building from weather-related damage. Together, fascias and soffits play a crucial role in maintaining the integrity and longevity of the roof, preventing potential damage caused by weather, moisture, and pests. Properly installed and maintained fascias and soffits contribute to the overall durability of a building. Along with providing additional layers of protection to buildings, fascias and soffits can also be highly customisable and provide the building with a unique injection of colour which is why at The Plastic Centre we stock a range of colours whether it be a 9mm fascia board or hollow soffit!

At the Plastic Centre, we have a collection of some of the best upvc fascias and soffits, which come in several different forms, depending on your requirements.

UPVC Fascias and Soffits

Each component, both the fascia and soffit work together to provide support and safeguard the roof’s strength.

UPVC Fascia Boards

The fascia is a horizontal board that runs along the lower edge of the roof and is fixed directly to the ends of the roof trusses or rafters. The fascia element of the fascias and soffits is visible from the outside and is located just below the roofline. Fascias serve several purposes:

    • Supporting the bottom row of roof tiles or the bottom edge of roof shingles, helping to keep them securely in place.
    • Acting as a barrier between the edge of the roof and the exterior, preventing moisture, insects, and small animals from entering the roof space.
      Providing a finished and aesthetic look to the edge of the roof.

We have a variety of fascias and soffits available including 9mm fascias boards, 16mm fascia boards, and Ogee fascias to name a few! Along with this, we have a product range specifically for fascia capping which may be worthwhile looking at if you are interested in buying fascia and soffits.

UPVC Soffit Boards

The soffit is the underside of the eaves, visible from the exterior of the building when looking up from ground level at the fascias and soffits. It extends horizontally from the outer edge of the building’s walls to the fascia board. Soffits have ventilation holes or slots to allow air to flow into the roof space.

The main functions of soffits are:

    • Assisting in ventilating the roof space, which helps to reduce condensation and prevent the build-up of moisture that could lead to mould or rot.
    • Providing a finished appearance to the underside of the roof overhang.

When it comes to soffits at The Plastic Centre, we stock a range of products to suit different purpose such as the flat soffit board and hollow soffit boards. Again, these products are available to by online in a range of styles and sizes!
