Facia and Soffit Cleaning and Maintenance
In terms of restoring Facias and Soffits it is important to correctly prepare the area first. If the surface is UPVC then all you will need to do is wipe down and clean the area with a specialist UPVC cleaner, available in most DIY stores (please read the label for product guidance).
If the area is wooden then it is important to sand down the area to create a completely smooth and flake free surface. Once this is done, you can apply a specialised filler to fill any gaps or cracks. After another quick sand down, the area can then be painted with a specialised exterior paint, available in most DIY stores (please read the label for product guidance). These are generally very good nowadays, containing primer and protection properties within.
The same procedure and similar paints can be used for cast iron gutters and downpipes making the work much easier than traditionally.
