FasciaExpert.co.uk recommends that our uPVC cladding be installed over a timber stud frame or over a masonry or block substrate and should be fixed to a preserved treated timber batten.
Cladding fixing points should be no further apart than 600mm for White Cladding, and 400mm for Woodgrain or coloured Cladding.
