When our client, Mr Patel, first set eyes on his prospective new home he knew this was to be the one and he fell in love with it immediately.
Backing onto a local park in a perfect location, the house was everything he wanted. Mr Patel had a large extension built for his growing family and everything was just right.
But fast forward 10 years and the house was no longer quite as glamorous and majestic as it used to be.
Looking up towards the roofline, Mr Patel could see there was urgent work to be done. The fascias and soffits were in a terrible state but he knew that he faced huge bills for renovating and repainting them.
This was because the house stands in an elevated position and the roofline cannot be reached by ladders. The only way he could deal with it was by erecting expensive scaffolding every time the woodwork needed repainting.
This was when Summit Cladding came to the rescue. We were introduced to Mr Patel by a neighbour and previous client of ours, whose house we had worked on.
Mr Patel realised that instead of an endless painting routine, he could have rosewood upvc fascias that looked like timber but required no maintenance.
We erected scaffolding to all the roofline area and removed all the existing timber fascias and soffits,
replacing them with 18 mm rosewood fascia boards, white soffits and rosewood cladding to the centre of the dormer windows.
At the same time, we fitted deep flow guttering to replace the original 4-inch guttering that was not as efficient as it should have been for a roof of its size.
Our client is delighted with the makeover his house has been given – especially as he will never again have to get out a paintbrush to deal with flaking timber!
