UPVC Fascias and Soffits

We have had a relationship with our manufacturer for over 20 years and being one of the largest manufacturers with 25 years of experience in manufacturing UPVC fascia and soffit profiles.
Working at capacity the fully computerised factory produces thousands of profiles a week! Constant upgrading and day to day input into the running ofthe factory has led to its products being awarded British Standards Kite Marks as well as full BBA certification for its UPVC products. Beyond this it operates its own in-house laboratory tests which far exceed the standards set down by the BSI inspectors.

UPVC

The plastic profile extrusion is produced by Swish Summit part of one of the largest group of companies in the country. Swish Summit fascia and soffit is brilliant white in colour and is extruded from virgin polymers (not reground profile, used by many companies but synonymous with discolouration and abnormal expansion). It is the most used profile in the UK.

Installation

Firstly scaffolding towers are built to provide safe access in accordance with health and safety regulations then the original guttering is removed the timber is checked thoroughly for any signs of rot with minor repairs carried out inclusive of estimate.

A batten, if required, is securely fitted to the back of the original soffits,
a U trims is then fitted with the UPVC soffits locking into position. The UPVC fascias are then fitted clipping over the UPVC soffits fixed with marine grade stainless steel nails with white UPVC caps @ 600mm centres.

Air vents are not fitted as standard but can be installed if requested at the time of survey.

All joints and corners in the UPVC are fitted with UPVC one piece moulded cover trims fixed with high grade silicone allowing for thermal expansion and contraction.

The gutter is produced by Floplast one of the largest suppliers to the trade. The UPVC guttering fitted can be ether half round Ogee or square in shape and either white black or brown in colour. The guttering is extruded from virgin polymers and has a high gloss finish. The fittings have heavy duty neoprene rubber sealing gaskets making leaks a thing of the past when fitted correctly. The guttering system if installed using high grade zinc galvanised screws to minimise corrosion.

General

Normally building work is not a nice process, with mess and days wasted waiting for people to turn up. We, however are different. Cleanliness and efficiency are very important to us, as is the genuine pride that the installers take in their work. At the end of the job everything is removed and the site left spotless.
