Hi,

I'm hoping to get a bit if advice on a job I've had done on my facia and soffits.

-The fascias/soffits on the front of the garage are visibly uneven. I've been informed that this is in fact quite common and usually isn't noticed until you replace the old parts, this doesn't seem 100% correct to me though.


- The wood above the garage door and around the bay window have not been replaced (plastic has been used as a cover on the window board, but the wood underneath is damaged). I've been told that this is because no plastic would fit in this gap and so the company I've used have left this area as wood. Again, my lack of experience is telling here and I have no idea if this is correct or not?

If anyone has any thoughts as to if my concerns are valid or not I'd really appreciate it!

CheersImageImageImageImage

The new fascias should be attached exactly where the old ones were, this will dictate the width of the soffit. They should never be particularly uneven, but they might have been.

I can see no reason why the soffits for the bay window and garage couldn't have been replaced, it would have meant scribing a piece of soffit and this all takes longer than whacking up a length of a manufactured width, (it's not as if it's a difficult scribe, as there's always plenty of cover at both edges) .

At a guess I'd say it's the difference between a carpenter doing the job and someone who only does fascias and soffits.
