How Much Do Replacement Fascias and Soffits Cost


Keeping your home looking its best is undoubtedly one of your greatest priorities. The only way to get this to happen is by doing any necessary repairs as soon as they are needed.


One area of your home that may need repairs from time to time is your Fascias and Soffits. These are essential because they allow water to drain off your roof to prevent water damage.

Fascias and Soffits repair costs can vary based on the extent of the damage and the lengths that are needed. Here is a look at what you need to know about the cost of replacement fascias and soffits.

The Cost of Fascias and Soffits

The average cost to replace damaged fascias and soffits is £1,200-3,000. The cost varies widely and this is because it is dependent on several factors.


The first thing that can affect the price is the size of your home. This is because fascia and soffits pricing is based on a per metre pricing. If your home is small or medium-sized you won’t pay the highest price.


The next factor that will affect the cost of soffits is whether you choose to have a vented option or not. A vented soffit will have a gap that will allow fresh air to enter the attic of your home. This will improve air circulation and help to keep the temperature of your roof more consistent.


This will prevent extremes of heat or cold from affecting your roof. This means that the roof will not disintegrate as fast. It is worth the investment to get vented soffits since they provide year-long protection from the weather.

The Cost of Fascias and Soffits Per Metre

As mentioned before the cost of soffits and fascias are usually done on a per metre basis. The average cost per metre is £100 This price is applicable when you choose to install white uPVC fascia and soffits.


If you choose to use the aluminum or vinyl option then the price will increase significantly. However, while they may be more expensive they do tend to have more durability. They are also less likely to tear, crack, and lose their shape. This means you will have their protection a lot longer.


One of the best ways to reduce the cost of fascias and soffits is by selecting a local roofer. When you work with a local roofer you won’t have to pay for travelling costs.

Gutters and Downpipe Replacements

The average cost to repair gutters is £480-720. This means that changing your gutter systems instead of your fascias and soffits may be worth looking into.


You should bear in mind though that your gutters only drive water away from the house. It doesn’t offer the roof any form of protection when the rain falls on it. The easier it is for water to run off your roof when it rains the less chance you have of sustaining damage.


When you replace gutters you are sometimes required to replace downpipes as well. Downpipes tend to take a lot of beating because of all the water they encounter. This may cause them to crack and even rot over time.


If you decide to use uPVC guttering you will need to purchase the downpipes as well. uPVC guttering costs about £35-50


The pricier option to use is cast iron. The prices for that start at about £57 per metre. The option you choose should be determined by your budget. However, you are probably already aware that the best and longest-lasting option is cast iron.


 Keep in mind too that the price will vary based on whether you are replacing everything or just sections of your gutters and downspouts. If you need a completely new system you will have to spend money on joins, adhesives, and fixings.

Getting Your Home Ready

While fascias and soffits are costly to repair it will undoubtedly cost you more to repair your roof if it gets significant water damage. This is why it is a good investment to get the best fascias and soffits you can afford.


When it comes to gutters and downspouts it is also best to ensure that these are working. Water that does not drain away from your home can affect the foundation of your home and cause water damage.


In the end the cost you will have to pay for restoration far outweigh the cost of repairing or replacing your gutters and downspouts.
