Cost to replace fascias soffits and guttering
Working out the average cost to replace fascias boards soffits and guttering can be a little tricky because there may be a lot of variables. Having said that most fascia replacement firms will have a standard ‘go to’ price per metre, and at least 70% of houses seem to fit this category. I have taken the time to work out the common fascia replacement cost for different property types, and those prices are listed below with other standard UPVC fascia replacement examples.
How did I arrive at these prices? Well not only do I fit fascias myself but I have life long friends in the fascia fitting industry, those include small to medium sized family firms as well as large companies. I also have an article on how to find a recommended fascia company if you want to read it.
Any quote for new a fascia price here assumes good quality materials for fascias and soffits as well as a quality branded guttering. I would advise against the re-use of any old plastic guttering as this will often leak when refitted, new guttering is of relatively low cost anyway.
Average price of new fascias soffits and guttering
The average cost of fitting new fascias boards, soffits and guttering finished with good quality materials comes in at a price of £100 per metre. This example is from a large city in the Midlands, which I have found to be a good benchmark for trade prices in general, although some parts of London may cost slightly more.
This price list is revised every 6-12 months, although the cost of fitting new fascias and soffits isn’t prone to much fluctuation as the raw cost of materials is quite stable, and competition is quite high form both fitters and suppliers. At the end of the day it will be down to how much a company or individual wants to earn in profit, and how busy they are – no escaping it. But as a general rule of thumb larger companies charge more to cover overheads such as staff, advertising and running costs.
