The fascia and gutters of your home play a very important part in the performance of your home. The fascia is important because it adds a nice finishing touch to the sub fascia that is located at the end of your rafters. After the fascia is added then it is a great idea to have gutters installed. Gutter help to direct the water from your roof to certain areas of your home to prevent moisture problems. Gutters will direct water away from your home to help prevent erosion at the end of the roof of your home where water comes from the roof. One of the best materials used for gutters and fascia is PVCu that will last a long time. We will take a look at some of the benefits and facts that make PVCu fascia and gutters a great choice for your home.

PVCu material is a long lasting material that requires very little maintenance. Having gutter from this material will also last a long time. We all know how big of a task it is to keep gutters clean. With traditional metal gutters of aluminium and galvanized metal if we do not clean them often as we should, they will develop rust. If these rust spots and corrosion are not taken care of in the proper way and in proper time they will start to leak at the various spots. Long lasting PVCu gutters will not develop these kinds of trouble areas.

At times traditional Fascia that is made from wood such as cedar and red wood will eventually develop stains as the fasteners used to hang the gutters rust and begin to leave watermarks on the wood. Rot will also develop on a wood fascia behind the gutters as moisture is trapped and held in the wood behind the gutters. This not a problem at all with PVCu fascia. It does not require replacing PVCu fascia as it would require often time replacing wooden fascia.

Another great thing about PVCu Gutters, Fascia and Soffits are the long lasting, non-fade colours that are available to you. The colours that are available in will match any type of exterior you may have.

PVCu gutters and fascia can be kept looking great by using a pressure washer and washing them clean. Painting is not required to keep these material looking great year end and year out.
