Extra Costs – What’s Not Included in the Prices Above?
A new roofline installation may cost more if any of the following apply:
- Scaffold is required to bridge over a large conservatory
- Substantial timber work is needed (i.e., rotten rafters or woodworm damage etc that need replacing)
- New cement work as the existing is in a poor condition
- There are difficulties with gaining access to the roof
- You want brown or “wood grain” effect Upvc fascia and soffit boards, as these cost more to purchase
- If your existing soffits contain asbestos, see our asbestos removal cost guide
Should the Existing Boards be Replaced or Covered Over With Plastic?
The most popular method is to remove the existing boards first and then install the Upvc fascia and soffit boards.
If you want to save money you could instruct the installer to cap over the existing boards.
This method is much quicker to complete and thinner plastic boards can be used, which are cheaper.
Within the roofing industry, there is an ongoing debate about which method is best.
Ultimately the best option for you will depend on your property and your budget but most people choose to fully remove and replace the boards rather than capping over them.
Can I Save Money by Having the Old Guttering Re-Installed?
Guttering is the least expensive part of every roofline installation, it’s also the only part that requires ongoing maintenance.
For this reason, it rarely makes sense to re-install the existing guttering unless it’s fairly new and in excellent condition.
Don’t forget that you’ll be paying the labour fee for your tradesperson to install the gutters, regardless of whether they are brand new or old.
Very few homeowners choose to refit the old gutters, the financial saving is minimal and old gutters are far more likely to leak and wouldn’t be covered by a guarantee.
A Warning About Asbestos
Asbestos was used in the manufacturing of certain types of soffit boards from the 1950’s through to the 1980’s.
The prices on this page assume that your home doesn’t have these dangerous boards, if it does, then removing them will cost extra.
This page is a great read as it contains in-depth information about asbestos.
