What Are The Advantages Of Using Aluminium Fascia?

Aluminium is becoming a popular choice of material for fascia and soffits. In this article, we outline the main benefits of aluminium fascia and soffit, and why aluminium is a great alternative to uPVC for roofline products.

Environmentally friendly

Compared to alternative materials such as timber and uPVC, aluminium is the most environmentally friendly material for fascia and soffits on the market. It is completely renewable – not only can it be produced using recycled aluminium, but it can also be recycled at the end of its lifetime.

It also has a longer lifespan in comparison to other materials. Where timber fascia and soffits will need replacing every few years because of weather damage and rot, aluminium fascia and soffits can last for decades with the correct maintenance. When you invest in aluminium, you’ll be investing in a roofline for life!

High durability, low maintenance

The long lifespan of aluminium is thanks to its highly durable properties. It is far stronger than steel or uPVC, and much more weatherproof. This means that it is super easy to maintain, too – they don’t warp or bend as easily as other materials over time, and they only need minimal cleaning and maintenance over the years.

Aluminium is also resistant to corrosion and rusting, so you won’t need to paint it throughout its lifetime either!

Easy to install

Aluminium fascia and soffits are installed like any other kind of fascia or soffit, so they are just as easy to install. Aluminium is also a very lightweight material, making installation even simpler!


Aluminium fascia and soffits are usually offered in a variety of colours and profiles to suit a variety of properties from traditional to modern. We offer aluminium fascia and soffit in three colours: black, white, and anthracite grey.

There are two different fascia profiles offered by PVC Cladding: L-shaped and V-shaped. These names are fairly self-explanatory – the L-shaped profile is 90 degrees, like an L, and the V-shaped profile features a sharper 45-degree angle, like a V.
