UPVC Spraying for Swansea

Can you spray paint soffits, fascias, guttering and downpipes to match?

‘Can you spray paint soffits, fascias, guttering and downpipes?’ is a question we get asked a lot. Because when it comes to taking care of a building, many people forget about this area.

 

  • The soffits are the area underneath that you can see from ground level. They stop anything from getting behind the fascai and allow ventilation into the roof.
  • The fascias are the front boards you see that the gutters are screwed to. They hold the gutters and the soffits and a usually one of the most noticable parts and so should be kept clean.
  • the guttering are the gulleys that catch all the water from the roof. They are always screwed to the fascias and are also important to keep cleaned as you don’t want them to clog.
  • The downpipes are the long cylinder or square tubes that run down the house. They take all the water form the gutter into the drains.


Painting or staining every three to five years will help keep water out of your home, prevent rot, and keep your roof trusses from collapsing. Over time, the paint wears away and fractures, leaving the wood exposed to the elements (sun, rain, insects, etc.). Your gutters and fascias will disintegrate if left untreated for a lengthy period. The fascia or gutter may need to be replaced in this situation.

The inside of the gutter can also be painted with bitumen to help protect older properties with cast iron downspouts and gutters. It’s better to remove your plastic gutters so you can paint behind them. Check the top of the fascia and clean your gutters while you’re here. If the fascia behind the gutters is not treated every few years, it will decay and lose its ability to support the gutter. You must have the correct tools and equipment to paint your soffits, fascia, and bargeboards. A professional painting service can produce a more exact and professional finish. Still, if you are a homeowner who is not afraid of heights, you may save yourself time and money by following this simple guide.

Choosing a colour

The professional ​UPVC spraying Swansea recommends choosing a colour similar to your windows or other trim. If your roof has a little pitch and you don’t see much of it, matching the gutters to the colour of the top and painting the fascia the same colour will help to lengthen the roofline and make it appear higher.

The easy way to update your property

When you combine the remodelling of your fascia, soffits, gutters, or cladding with the spray painting of your windows and doors, you create a cohesive concept for your property. Therefore, your exterior gives the appearance that your property was purpose-built or designed specifically for you. It will have a huge effect on the appearance and feel of your property. We strongly advise you to include fascia, soffits, gutters, and cladding in your remodel if you have the budget. Due to the difficulty of accessing certain parts and locations of your land, they are frequently neglected.

Conclusion

If your gutters and downpipes are somewhat old, in poor condition, or the pipes are deteriorating, spraying them may be a waste of time. Although replacing them is more expensive than spray painting, you want to ensure that your gutters and downpipes perform correctly.
