We live in a 4 bed detatched house, which has soffits that are breaking up.
We had a couple of quotes done earlier this year, which came in at around £2000 to £2500 (much more than I expected). I realise that the whoever does the job has to dispose of the old material, which I'm told (by one of the quoters) is asbestos, so is expensive to deal with.
Because we don't have 2 grand to spend, (still paying off the £5000 our double glazing cost us in sept 2007) we haven't had the job done.
One of the companies has just rung, to say they have just had 2 contracts cancelled, and want work to fill the time. They want to come back and requote (hmm, my scepticism emerging now, re the original quotes).
I realise that but I'm sure he had both soffits and fascias done and the amount of material and labour to fix would be similar. How high is your house ? We had guttering done off ladders and have seen ladders used for apex.
