Fascia and Soffit Replacement Cost Guide

Fascia and Soffit Replacement Cost Guide

Whether you need to replace your old, worn soffit and fascia, or would just like to add some street style to your home, you’re probably wondering how much it’s going to cost you. This blog will look at the various types of soffits and fascia available and aim to provide you with a rough idea of price, so you can plan your renovation project more accurately.

How Much are Fascia and Soffits to Replace?

The cost to replace your soffits and fascias will depend on a variety of factors, from the size of your home and the type of material you choose to the cost of labour and scaffolding. However, an approximate cost is £135 per linear meter. This means the cost of replacing soffits and facias on a standard semi-detached house will be approximately £2,500 excluding additional costs such as labour, scaffolding and waste removal.

Different Aspects Which Affect the Replacement Cost

As mentioned above, there are several factors that will affect the cost of your new fascia and soffits. These include:

  • Size of house – the size of your house will obviously affect the cost of your new soffits and fascias. For example, it will cost more to replace the fascia and soffit on a larger house than it will on a smaller home.
  • Type of material chosen – the type of material your chosen soffit and fascia is made from will affect its price i.e. uPVC will be more cost effective than metal or timber.
  • Full replacement or capped – you can choose to have your existing soffits and fascias ‘capped’. This means fitting uPVC fascia and soffits over the original one. This will be a slightly cheaper option than a full replacement.
  • Labour rates – the cost of installing your fascia and soffit will vary depending on where you are in the country and which professional you choose.
  • Waste disposal – if you are replacing old soffits and fascias for new, you will need your old ones removing, which will incur an additional charge for skips and removal.
  • Scaffolding – whilst scaffolding may not always be necessary, it is worth factoring in the cost just in case.
  • Additional components – you may find that once you have replaced your soffits and fascias you will also need new guttering or bargeboards, in which case there will be an additional cost.

Material Types and the Average Cost Per Metre

Soffits and fascias can be made from a variety of different materials, including wood, uPVC, aluminium, and steel. Each of these materials will vary in cost. Below is an estimated price of the most popular material choices.

Fascia and soffit material Average cost per metre
uPVC £5
Steel £10
Aluminium £25
Timber £70

 Cost of Replacing Fascia's and Soffits on My Home

As mentioned previously, the size of your home will have the biggest impact on the cost of your new soffits and fascias. It will also affect the time it takes for your new soffits and fascias to be installed. Below is an estimate of cost and installation time for a variety of different homes (these costs include both soffit and fascias, installation, and waste removal).

Type of home Gutter Length Average cost Average installation time
Flat 18m £3,600 2 days
Terrace House 25m £5,000 2 days
Bungalow 30m £6,000 2 days
Semi-detached 38m £7,600 4 days
Detached 48m £9,600 4 days

Should I Cap my Fascia and Soffits?

Rather than completely replacing your soffits and fascias, you can cap them. As mentioned above, capping means installing a uPVC layer over your existing fascias and soffits. This is a cost-effective way of protecting and repairing your old soffit and fascias. However, this is only a good option if your roofline is still in relatively good condition. If it is damaged or cracked, it is always worth considering replacing it.

Importance of Replacing Fascia’s and Soffits

You may think that your soffit and fascias are purely decorative, but they are essential elements of your roofline, and it is important to keep them in good working condition. Here are just a few reasons why:

  • Fascias protect your roof from the elements, moisture damage and insects and therefore must not have any cracks or gaps.
  • Soffits provide ventilation for your roof area, which helps to reduce moisture damage.
  • Your soffits and fascias help to support the roof structure, so must remain durable and strong.
  • Your roofline supports your guttering system, which is essential in keeping water away from your home, its walls, and its foundations.
  • Rotting timbers in the soffit and fascia could lead to a rotting roof, which is much more costly to replace.
