Project Description

The project began with the erection of the scaffolding structure. This was applied to two elevations of the house. We then removed the old cast iron gutters and wooden fascias, soffits and barge-boards. This allowed us access to the roofing rafters so that we could inspect the rafter feet and repaired where necessary. We then removed the barge-boards from the gable ends which allowed us to carry out repairs to the tiled verge on gable end. Next installed a ridged eves fascia tray to ensure that all rainwater flowed into the new guttering system. We then installed 80 meters of timber backed fascia and barge board which had a 9mm white UPVC protection layer. Next we installed 80 meters of un-vented 9mm white UPVC soffit board. We then moved onto the cladding at the gable end. We installed 50 square meters of foil thermal blanket. This was then covered with 50 square meters of white 150mm UPVC Swish shiplap cladding. Finally we installed the new guttering system. This involved fitting 40 meters of Poly Pipe white square 115mm guttering with four 2.5 meter down pipes and a large water butt. We then removed the scaffold, building debris and cleansed the site.

Results

This house featured an unusual Dutch Barn design and the client was unsure that UPVC fascias, soffits, guttering, cladding and barge-boards would suit this style of building. After installation they were delighted with the final result and relieved that their maintenance issues were at an end.
