Replacement soffits and fascias in Southgate, North London

October 16, 2017 6:15 am Published by

Summit Cladding – “Mum’s” house in Southgate Summit cladding have been specialising in replacement fascias and soffits for over 30 years, but a lot has changed over that time. The choice of materials available was very limited in the early days and we originally imported pvc profiles from Belgium. Now, though, the choice and colour of material is much wider. We can supply new fascias and soffits in almost every colour you can imagine and although grey is all the rage now, who knows what the fashionistas will want next year? A job for mum Being in business for so many years – and with recommendations producing almost half our business — we were delighted when one of our former... View Article

Replacement soffits and fascias in Golders Green, North London

October 5, 2017 6:13 am Published by

Summit Cladding has built its reputation on setting the highest possible standards for even the most demanding of clients. We work on properties of every kind, from modest former housing authority homes to magnificent detached houses that could feature on Grand Designs. Summit also works closely with leading window installation companies who recommend us to complement their products — as with this case in Golders Green, north-west London. Our clients were fitting new windows in two dormers built into the roof, and because access was difficult we arranged for scaffolding so the window company could replace the windows while we installed new fascias. As you can see from the “before” pictures, rotting material and damp were causing problems around the... View Article

Replacement soffits, fascias and guttering in Twickenham

August 1, 2017 9:34 am Published by

If you are lucky enough to live in an art deco house you will know how important it is to maintain and protect the period features. I was amazed and delighted, therefore, to come across not one house, but a whole cul-de-sac full of art deco houses, all with their original windows intact. Summit cladding was visiting our new client, Antonius and his wife, who have been living in their period art deco house in East Twickenham for over 30 years. Antonius didn’t want the house to look any different, but he had major problems with all the guttering and fascia boards, which needed attention. He had also built a beautiful gazebo to the rear of the house that made... View Article

New fascias, soffits and bargeboards in Enfield, North London

May 8, 2017 5:06 am Published by

Here at Summit Cladding we pride ourselves on respecting the wishes of our clients. So, when Nik and Maria, from Enfield, asked us to carry out a makeover on their property, there was one important condition attached: no trampling on the garden! Nik and Maria have lived in their house in a quiet cul-de-sac for over 30 years and are very proud of their property. When they moved in they had all their windows replaced with white aluminium frames and mahogany sills which, at the time, were a “cutting edge” design. Garden out of bounds! They also carefully maintained the front and back gardens and it was made clear that these gardens were “out of bounds” for our installation team. The... View Article

Replacement soffits and fascias in Woodford, North London

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. Peeling Paintwork   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... View Article

Summit Cladding is always happy to offer householders free advice on exterior makeovers. From older period properties to modern standard designs, Summit can give your home the “wow factor!” Our client, Philomena, contacted us for advice on fitting a new front door canopy after the old one came off.   Philomena had been searching for a company that specialises in front door canopies for some time and a friend of hers visited our showroom in Cattlegate Road, Crews Hill, Enfield.  We arranged an appointment to offer a range of alternative designs that would compliment the age and style of her home. Cladding for symmetry   Summit recommended an enclosed “V” canopy with James Hardy composite cladding to the centre of... View Article

Soffits, fascias and guttering in Loughton, Essex

February 14, 2017 5:55 am Published by

Now here’s a question: what do you do when your clients are not on speaking terms with their neighbours — but you need access next door to put up scaffolding? Answer: get the builders to play Cupid! This is a problem that Summit Cladding has faced in the past — and one that we had to face again in this latest job in a quiet cul-de-sac in Loughton, Essex. We were approached by Victor and June who asked us to carry out the same work on their house as we had previously installed on a neighbours’ property. But then we discovered that they were not on good terms with their neighbours and didn’t know whether they would allow us access... View Article

Soffits fascias bargeboards and guttering installation in Harpenden, Hertfordshire

February 7, 2017 4:19 pm Published by

Summit Cladding faced a double challenge to enhance the look of this 1960s detached house in Harpenden, Hertfordshire. Not only did we have to reach the highest point of the house, but we also had to remove and safely dispose of some asbestos. Summit were recommended to our client, David, after he’d seen the work we carried out for his brother-in-law in St Albans. Part of our task at David’s house was to replace the wooden barge boards. These are the large lengths of timber that follow the outline of the roof, shaped like an inverted letter “v.”  As they are at the highest point of the house they are normally out of reach and difficult to maintain. When they... View Article

Soffits, Fascias and Bargeboards replaced in Barnet, North London

January 25, 2017 8:38 am Published by

Maintenance Free! If you are going to have cladding installed on the outside of your house, you will want it to be maintenance-free, won’t you? What you don’t want is old softwood boards that will start to rot within a few years! That’s a problem a lot of homeowners have faced, because builders tend to use cheaper softwood timber, instead of hardwood — and even builders using pvc sometimes don’t get it right. Summit cladding is a specialist roofline pvc fitting company and we recently completed an installation of maintenance-free roofline products for clients who live in a detached property in Barnet, North London. We were pleased to be recommended to our clients, who were going to have their windows... View Article

Porch roof replacement in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire

December 9, 2016 10:28 am Published by

Our latest clients contacted Summit Cladding by visiting our showroom in Crews Hill, Enfield. Their property in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire had an infestation of squirrels which were nesting in their porch loft and water was also leaking into the house. We arranged an appointment to visit their property to identify what was causing these issues. After specialising in roofline solutions for nearly thirty years, finding the problem was relatively straightforward for the Summit Cladding team. The original wooden fascias of the porch were rotting away above the guttering and consequently, the squirrels could gain easy access, to create a home in the loft. Installation A quote was agreed and we started work almost immediately. First, we removed all the original timber fascias,... View Article
