We all know how important it is to look after our roofs. Your roof-line plays a huge role in protecting your roof rafters and keeping rainwater out.
What Are The Benefits Of Fitting uPVC Rooftrim Products?
Fascia and soffit boards were traditionally made from wood, although it is now apparent that this material isn’t ideal for withstanding weather conditions in the UK.
Wood can very easily be chipped or rot with the varying temperatures and weathering. This means constant maintenance over time, in the form of both repairs and repainting. If not resolved quickly, issues arising can cause significant damage inside your roof space – resulting in expensive repairs that can easily be avoided.
Choosing Household Is Choosing Peace Of Mind
Household’s installation teams are real craftsmen – not just “fitters”.
None of our work in the past, or in the future will be subcontracted which means we ensure 100% customer satisfaction.
With over 40 years combined experience, Household Home Improvements are confident to say that not only do we offer the best advice, our value for money sets us apart from our competitors. Household’s key aim is to offer a friendly, yet professional service to potential and existing customers.
Household’s fascia, soffit and bargeboards conceal and protect your rafters giving your home an attractive and unified appearance, with a choice of vented and non-vented soffits in a variety of colours and designs. Eaves trays are fitted as standard. Hedgehog gutter guard is fitted to minimize the chance of blockages – ensuring your gutters stay clear of moss and debris.
Each rainwater system is co-extruded with a white interior and a range of exterior colours – Household’s new innovative solution to the problems associated with rapid heat absorption and expansion of gutters. While the interior will be exposed to sunlight as normal, its absorption of heat from the sun and subsequent expansion along its width and length will be significantly reduced, thus dramatically decreasing the probability of any associated problems.

Our Guarantee To You
All installations come with a standard guarantee, issued by Household, on both materials and craftsmanship for 20 years. Should you be looking for extra peace of mind, we’ll happily offer a transferable guarantee lasting up to 50 years on our white fascia and soffits. All of our jobs are also supplied with a 10-year, insurance backed guarantee, which includes a deposit protection scheme
If You’ve Got An Asbestos Problem – We Will Help
Our installers regularly come into contact with asbestos products, usually in the soffit boards of some older properties. Asbestos fibres can enter the lungs and can cause irreversible, long term effects such as asbestosis and mesothelioma.
Household Home Improvements is trained and certificated to the highest standard of health and safety in the removal of cement-based Asbestos.
Should I Choose Full Replacement Or Cap Over?
We ONLY offer full replacement, unlike other companies who opt for the cheaper, easier option of “capping” or “cloaking”. Both of these terms refer to installing new uPVC fascia and soffit on top of existing wooden boards. This may seem the more cost effective option when presented to you in the short term, but over the long run is it really such a good idea? The wood hasn’t gone anywhere; it is still there, now sweating without ventilation and deteriorating even faster each year. Eventually the nails will come loose due to rotted and infested timber, leaving your fascia exposed and unsecured.
