    uPVC Fascias and Soffits replacement

    Hi, A month ago we have been scammed by a bogus tradesman and then we have to find someone who can do the job as quickly as possible. We went ahead with a firm that was recommended by a colleague and neighbour. Now that we have been scammed I'm not sure I can trust anyone yet. At the moment...

    Bricked up gap between walls and roof

    Hello I'm looking for some advice for how to remedy what appears to be a bodge by a previous owner. I have a standalone single story garage which I'll soon be renovating into a workshop (new plasterboard, insulation, flooring...) but I want to be sure the structure is sound and secure before...

    1930s Roof Support Beam Question

    Hello! DIyer here.. however this job seems beyond me.. I'd really appreciate some opinions on what you guys think would be a reasonable solution - some context/knowledge/insight, before I'm swamped in quotes. Or in the event I decide to do it myself. This is my mum's house, and the diagonal...

    What is the purpose of fascia boards compared to cladding

    I'm rebuilding a flat roofed garage and am wondering what the point in fascia boards are here because the rafters don't overhang the wall, instead they finish flush with the edge of the wall. Is there any reason I shouldn't clad right up to the roof line? A rubber roof will be installed with a...

    Venting Through Fascias

    Sorry, think I posted this in the wrong place in "Building" and here would be more suitable. Wondering about the logic/sense of providing ventilation through the fascia boards. I realise that usually you would vent through the soffits or have some over-fascia ventilation but I have neither...

    Fitting Fascia Boards

    Hi, For an outbuilding, we have 9inch (220mm) roof joists and 4in (100mm) insulation and 18mm OSB3 boards for a warm flat roof. Based on this I think I will need at least 340mm Fascia boards - but I can't seem to find any; most seem to go up to 225mm only.. I was planning on using 18m fascia...

    Is there a current view regarding Eurocell Ltd. fascias?

    I've been looking around (and on-line) for uPVC roof line products (fascias, soffits and guttering). I've been to Eurocell in Birmingham and their stuff looks very good. However, it seems the highest cost of anything I've managed to find on line. Swish, Freefoam and Wickes all seem to be...

    Unfortunately we are already amidst our renovation job, which includes also the redoing of a flat roof and upgrading it to a warm roof and I have a question regarding the insulation of the fascia, I find shocking that there isn't really much material on the web about it! The new joists have been...

    Trying to replace the timer on a Lamona Oven

    I am trying to replace the timer on a Lamona HJA3650 oven (think its a Howdens make). The problem is that to remove the timer you need to remove the stainless steel fascia and I cannot see how its held on. Taking the two rotary knobs off do NOT reveal any screws and I cannot see any screws...

    Insulating behind fascia board in between joists

    Hi all, I've just done my first flat roof and I've left noggins to pick up the Fascia's where the joists run parallel to the wall. The joists overhang at the front also for the fascia. The brickwork is two course higher on the outside so I could have a smaller fascia board by the time the warm...

    As my builder buggered off without putting in the soffit vents I had BC out last week and lo and behold it's changed and we need cross ventilation on the flat roof of my extension and we're not able to just put in the soffit vents on the front overhang, but rather being asked to do it from side...

    Wooden bar on roof tiles above fascia board??

    Hi all, I have a problem with my roof. The tiles on the right hand side need replacing, and I had a roofer round yesterday who said this wooden bar I have running along the edge of the roof tiles doesn't need to be there as my attached neighbour doesn't have it on her side, although the building...
