How to Maintain UPVC Fascia Boards

Keeping your UPVC fascia in top shape is an important job. It’s not just about looks – the fascia boards protect your roof's rafters and keeps water from seeping into your home.

So, to keep your fascia looking and working great, you have to give it some love. Here’s some of our top tips for maintaining your UPVC fascia boards:

Tip #1: Keep it clean

We recommend regularly cleaning your fascia boards to get rid of any dirt, debris, or grime build-up. Grab a soft brush or sponge and use some warm soapy water to clean the boards – no need for any fancy cleaners or solvents that could mess up the UPVC. You could also use a pressure washer, but be gentle as you don't want to damage the surface of the boards.

Tip #2: Watch for damage

Next up, check that fascia board regularly for any signs of damage. If you see any cracks, splits, or other damage, don't ignore it - fix it up pronto to prevent further issues. You can use a UPVC adhesive or sealant for minor cracks, but bigger ones may require you to replace that damaged section.

Tip #3: Trim those trees and foliage

Keep those trees and foliage in check too. You don't want them growing too close to your fascia board, as they can cause damage and debris build-up. Trimming any overhanging branches and foliage should prevent any problems.

Tip #4: Check for leaks

Your fascia board is supposed to keep water out, so if you notice any leaks, that's a sign of trouble. Check for leaks in the attic or ceiling and then inspect the  fascia board for any damage or wear and tear. Catching leaks early can save you a lot of headaches down the road.

Tip #5: Call in the pros

Don't be afraid to call in the professionals for some routine maintenance. While regular cleaning and inspections can help, a professional can do a more thorough job and catch any potential issues before they get out of hand.


And there you have it - some tips from the experts on how to maintain your UPVC fascia properly. Give it some love, and it'll protect your roofline and make your home look great for years to come!
