Welcome to Essex Fascias

My name is Steve Hollis and this is my professional business to transform the Roofline of your home!


Based in Colchester Essex, I offer a prompt, efficient  and easy to arrange service to replace your old Fascias, Soffits and Guttering. My emphasis is on quality products, great workmanship  and competitively priced services which are fully guaranteed.

When the time comes to replace the Fascias, Bargeboards, Soffits and Guttering on your home, you have a wide selection of people to call. From the larger companies to the smaller individual, your choice is extensive so how you make the right choice?

I started Essex Fascias way back Christmas 1999 when the world was

 on the brink of the new millennium and Prime Minister Tony Blair was linking arms with our late Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in the millennium dome and it will have been in existence for 25 years, this coming Christmas! 

Previous customers have found getting it right comes down to 2 factors – who does the job and the quality of the materials used; nothing else really contributes. Choosing a larger company to undertake your work may give the impression of stability with maybe a brand’s reputation along with supposedly cast iron guarantees but again it makes little difference as everything relies on the skills of the team arriving to do the work.

Why choose Essex Fascias?

 With years of experience, you can be assured that we are highly experienced to undertake the Fascia & Soffit replacement on your home.

We are installers not salesmen. There is no sales team and no hard sell.

We only ever use best practice techniques which consistently deliver excellent results on all of our installations!

We only ever use high quality materials.

No deposit is normally required.

Everything is properly planned.

All our work is guaranteed.



It’s Simple! Please call

01206 331316 or 07711 608841 

Our quality services are always in high demand and I’m afraid if we answered every call we received, then we wouldn’t get any work done! So we came up with a system that is fair to everyone.
When you call you will be asked to leave a message. Request a quotation and leave your details and we will endeavour to get back to you ASAP, always in the order that we receive them!

Alternately, you are very welcome to email us at

Quotations are free, usually in writing and are without obligation. We look forward to hearing from you! 

I hope I can demonstrate that we have the experience, ability and capacity to give you the very best result.
Thank you for reading our introduction.

Don’t know what to read next? Our most popular article is “Better than Everest?” in our Editorial section. 

One of our previous customers inherited a Everest Roofline installation when they moved house and looking past it’s best, gave us the job of replacing it. Viewed for the first time it actually didn’t look that bad, so the big question was… could we do better? Let’s see.

Your Results

Using only Best Practises ensure you superb results, guaranteed every time

Your Roofline Quotation

The following elements are included and contribute to produce the very best Roofline installation.

  • A survey & risk assessment before your work commences.

  • Scaffolding (including labour) erected by our scaffolding company where necessary.

  • All portable access equipment and other access equipment.

  • All the required materials.

  • All our labour costs for the duration of the installation.

  • The complete removal & commercial disposal of all rubbish.

Your survey is the first key component to ensure the best result possible and we carry this out a few weeks before we begin work.

Unlike others who just turn up on the day, unsure of where to begin and in what order to do the job, we undertake a survey relevant to the work required. Even if we have worked on other similar houses in your road, your survey is unique to you and generates a schedule which then ensures your work goes smoothly and according to plan.

We always try to replicate the original style as keeping the character of your home can be important but we are also keen to listen to your views? You may want an extractor vent installed into the new soffit or low voltage downlights above your garage and these type of tasks can be incorporated into your work.

As part of your survey we also generate a risk assessment, looking at each part of the job, for correct access is most important. This careful planning allows us to carry out your work professionally without any issues.

We organise any scaffolding and our scaffolder erects this shortly before we start work.

Your Roofline Replacement

Although no two jobs are the same, the replacement of your Fascias are likely to be carried out in similiar steps below.

This is a typical example:

  • remove the existing timber Fascias, Soffits and the old rainwater system.

  • assess the condition of the rafter feet and all internal supporting woodwork.

  • replace all soffit battening and any other ancillary wooden fixing points.

  • accurately fit the correct size of new Fascia & Soffit using Stainless Steel fixings.

  • fit an essential fascia ventilation system conforming to building regulations.

  • replace the existing sarking felt edge with a flexible rot-proof lip.

  • install an under-tile guard to keep birds out – dependant on the tile type.

  • install a new rainwater system correctly – the colour & style of your choice.

  • carefully inspect and re-position the tiles back to their correct location.

  • finish closing up your roof dealing with any outstanding issues.

  • a final check and double check to make sure your home is fully waterproof.

Finally, all the rubbish generated from your installation is removed from your property and everything is left clean and tidy with any scaffolding being promptly removed afterwards.
