Hi me again,

The timber gable ends are now covered with ply, the builder has put the UPVC fascia on today.

I would have expected them to felt and batten the gable end before fitting the new UPVC fascia, or am I missing something?

The way they have done it the felt (which I assume they will be fitting) will stop just below the fascia so if there is driving wind and rain the external ply skiin of the gable will get wet. This will be tiled when finished.

What's the correct way of doing this?

Thanks

Neil

Hi if you mean the face of your gable end then yes it would have been wise to felt behind the new pvc work to prevent future problems
