Summit Cladding were called to a home in Wanstead, East London to repair and improve the front exterior of a home. We removed all the old timbers and replaced them with a Eurocell OG Fascia Board. The old wooden finule was completely rotten so we had it copied to the exact specifications but in Hardwood and painted it white to match the ogiginal 1920’s woodwork that the property featured. We then painted the brick work and cut holes in the replacement PVC bargeboards to ensure that it matched the existing features.
Summit Cladding were called to a home in Tolmers Road Cuffley. The homeowner, Mr Jacovides wanted a canopy at the front of the house, so we created a door canopy which extended across the front of the house, ensuring that it matched with the existing Redland Old English tiles.
