Replacing Summer House Roof Edging With UPVC


Postby mrbluesky » Sat Jul 23, 2016 2:54 pm

Hi I am a newbie, so apologies if I am posting this in to the wrong section.
I have just moved house and have inherited a summer house with the new purchase. The summer house requires a few repairs, one being the edging on the roof. I have included a photo so it will be easier to explain. The wooden edging is rotten and I was wondering if it could be replaced with a UPVC edging instead of more wood again? Also if so how would the UPVC be attached? The wood is two separate pieces that attaches together. Any advice would be gratefully received. Thank You!

yes you can buy plastic profile, 100x80mm corner, you can either silicone it to the roof, or use poly pins to nail it to the front of the roof, or both

Forgot to ask as had another reply. Ok to remove the old wood? Other reply said to rub wood down and paint and cover with fascia board? Some of the wood as had it and that seems alot of work for me. Thank you once again for your help. Appreciated.

Thank you for your help and reply. Some of the wood has had it. So I think its ok to replace with angled fascia board? Much appreciated.
