PVCU Cladding Fascias, Soffits, Barge Board – Why Have It?
An introduction: In the UK, cladding of the domestic property fulfils two purposes, namely functional and decorative. Functional: The very nature of the many and varied designs of properties built of the last century dictates that Fascia boards (the guttering fits onto it), and Soffits (the flat board that you see below the fascia board), are a necessity as part and parcel of the design structure. I.E. they need to be there. Decorative: Most people agree that in the right place ‘Shiplap’ looks very nice. Shiplap, and also it’s near neighbour TGV (Tongued – Grooved – Vee’d), often in the trade called ‘matchboard’, is used as a decorative cladding, although now in new build they are both used more sparingly than a few decades ago.
