    Just got my flat roof sorted with torch on felt.

    Went round the back and noticed some scorching of the UPVC fascia.

    There is also a portion with some duck tape residue.

    What's the best product to remove these types of mark?

    If you can find a plastics fascia etc. supplier you can get a trade strength cleaner - if that don't clean plastic, nothing will;)

    Get the solvent based UPVC cleaner and not the rubbish soap based one. The soapy one comes with a squirty top the solvent one doesn't.

    You may struggle though if those marks are burnt on.

    I hear what you're saying it makes sense to me, and the sheen has been taken off the fascia.

    I have asked the roofer to return and tell me what he will do to fix this and other issues.

    The good news is I used PVCu Solvent Cleaner by Everbuild.

    It worked like a dream amazing stuff.
