Fascia’s and soffit’s require regular maintenance, in fact they will need painting every 4yrs to protect the wood from damage from the elements.
Now unless you are in a conservation area why would you not consider cladding over the wood, you can clad over fascia’s and soffits in UPVC cladding in many different colours. And you can even get a wood affect UPVC cladding and considering it will not need any maintenance after being installed professionally for 15yrs upwards you may be thinking this must be expensive. Actually the cost between sanding back and painting the wood or cladding over it are not worlds apart. It actually takes longer to sand back and paint the wood than to clad over it so the price is reflective of this fact.
If your gutters have been up a while we usually do suggest replacing the gutters if we are cladding, this is because we will need to take all guttering down anyway and we would only be charging you for the new materials so it is a no brainer really. you will also get an 8yr guarantee on all work as long as the gutters are properly maintained.
