As uPVC fascia and soffits are designed to last and keep their looks for a long time, it is important to choose the right colour for your home first time. To help you make this decision, take a step back and really look at your home.
Consider the style and age of your house. For example, it may have rendered external walls, or it may be built out of a distinctive colour of brick. Both will have an impact on how your chosen colour of fascia and soffit boards will look once installed. You should also consider the colour of your window frames and external doors and choose a colour of fascia and soffit that complements these rather than detract from them.
When looking at the outside of your home, also try to envisage your chosen colour of fascia and soffit in situ. This may help you see the ‘finished picture’ and decide whether it is the best colour for you and your house.
There is now a wide range of coloured, foiled PVC fascia and soffits on the market, from classic white and black to modern grey. Wood grain effect soffits and fascia also come in a variety of finishes such as Rosewood and Light Oak, all specifically designed to enhance your home without being conspicuous.
White is the classic and most popular choice. Not only does it suit most homes, regardless of style, but it makes for a sharp, clean finish. Many of us also have white window and door frames, so white fascia and soffits will blend beautifully into the finished external aesthetic.
A more contemporary choice is anthracite grey. Once only considered a suitable option for urban, modern dwellings, anthracite grey is now a popular choice for those who want to give their homes a more modern appeal. Grey soffits and fascia can look sophisticated on any style of house, but will work best with complementary grey window frames.
A third colour option for your soffits and fascia is black. Although considered harsh by some, black can be extremely effective on white houses – either older buildings or those with a white rendered finish – and can provide a clean, distinctive finish.
Wood effect soffits and fascia offer a beautiful, natural finish for any style of home, and with colours such as Rosewood, Light Oak and Mahogany now available, you will be sure to find a shade that suits.
Choosing the right colour uPVC soffit and fascia can make all the difference to the outside look and feel of your house.
