I can't give an idea on price, but be aware that I've known some builders to fix/bodge the UPVC soffits over the existing wooden soffits.

This is for complete replacement, existing wood will be coming off.

That is what has happened to the house we bought last year. All is rotten underneath and needs everything replaced now, as bits are sagging and falling off, end caps are held on with mastic, total bodge job and company have folded so although the previous owners took out insurance no one to go to and it wasn't cheap either. We are budgetting between 5-7k for it all to be totally ripped off, scaffolding, disposal and replacement in Upvc assuming no further work needed into the roof We are in Wiltshire so if anyone has any info that would be great, thanks.

As long as the fascia and soffits aren't rotten they don't need to come off. If rotten then yes but firstly an investigation is needed as to why they are rotten.

Total waste of time and money to remove them and actually isn't such a good job as skinning over. I have seen more fascias that have come off in storms that are uPVC fixed direct to the rafter ends than skinned over fascias that are fixed every foot to existing wooden boards.

Standard boards tend to be 18mm thick whereas capping boards for skinning over are 9mm thick so you are paying a ton more for 9mm!

The way to reduce costs is to find a team that don't use scaffolding. A few teams I know are using the double ladder method with the angle brackets and then a metal extension between the 2 ladders that you walk on
Saves a ton of money and is quicker. This is how my house was done.

Costs vary wildly but I had my house done circa 10 years ago and they also did the garage and I paid under a grand supply and fix. I knew they were short of work at the time so haggled them down from 1300.

I didnt think the old ones needed removing if they were in good condition, I'm glad you confirmed. We had ours fitted when we had a side extension 12 years ago, lucky only paid for materials BIL did them.

Correct. Nothing wrong with skinning over wood - as long as it is good quality and sound

Skin over and cap the screws or nails with plastic caps.

There are 3 extensions gone up near me over the Summer. Different builders and they all put up wooden fascias and then skinned them.

The beauty of doing it this way is your gutter clips can go anywhere as the gutter screws end up biting in to the wood behind

If you just use uPVC fascias the gutter screws end up gripping in plastic only which means they rip out when the gutters get overloaded in a storm. Happens a lot.
