On a previous page on this website I created some step by step instructions on how to remove and replace roofline fascias, soffit boards and gutters. On this page (below) I have created a comprehensive list of all the Upvc materials that were used in that installation.
Looking for photos of how I remove and replace fascias and soffits? You need to visit this page.
The installation comprised 8 metres of fascia, soffit and guttering with one rainwater downpipe. The property was semi detached and we joined the new boards/guttering to the existing system on the neighbours property.
The list below would be a good guide/checklist for anyone wanting to replace roofline boards for the first time. I have included enough materials to complete one side of a semi detached house, including gutters, pipes, felt, nails and roofline boards etc.

This page has step-by-step instructions on how to correctly remove old boards and replace them with Upvc. The page also contains a series of photos taken by me.
I recently saw how a rogue trader ripped off an elderly customer by doing shoddy work. I took some photos of the crappy work and created a page titled “5 Reasons Why You Should Never Cap Over Existing Boards“
