What to ask before replacing your fascias
The Quality of Work
Before choosing any company to carry out your home improvements, it’s important to research the suitability and quality of their work.
Examining any photos that they have will allow you to do this. Click here to see our gallery of work
The Type of Fixings
We only use ring shank nails for the job in hand. The fixing comes in many sizes, we use 75mm because it is usually the best for the job, as it creates strong fix and durable in harsh weathers. Anything 40mm or less should not be used.
If your guttering are more than 10 years old, it may make financial sense to replace the existing gutters on your home with new ones.
The Work Platform
We are experienced fascia fitters, we will likely use our own temporary work platforms to carry out the task (safety permitting) because it helps to reduce costs. If a full scaffold or an elevating work platform (ie. scissor lift) is required for any reason (high storey, difficult or awkward access), this will significantly increase the costs.
You should always ask this question as it will put the price of the quote into context and allow you to compare any quotes on a like-for-like basis.
The Public Liability
The purpose of public liability insurance is to protect the company against claims in respect of their legal liability for personal injury or property damage that may occur as they carry out their business.
We are fully insured, and if required, we are able to provide the certificate.
If you ask nothing else, ask about the quote – it’s important!
Ask whether it is a fixed price quote or an estimate.
Fixed-price quotes should always be honoured, although estimates can be subject to going up. You wouldn’t want to get to the end of the project and find out there’s 40% more to pay than the original ‘estimate’.
Ask if they are registered for GST, if yes, you should factor in another 10% for GST.
We are GST registered, and we accept cash and bank payments.
