Replacing fascia on garage

We want to replace the wooden fascia for UPVC on our garage. I am concerned, as the felt from the flat roof overhangs and we would need to lift the felt to replace the fascia. The roof is possibly 50 years old. If we lift the felt will it crack? Will we then need to replace the whole roof? Many Thanks

There is the possibility that the felt may crack but that would not mean replacing the whole flat roof, worst case would be that you would need to remove and replace the overhanging felt, but 9/10 we are able to replace the fascia without damaging the existing felt, I hope this helped with your problem.

You will not need to lift the felt uPVC facia can be placed straight onto of timber facia.

Yes you will have to lift the felt edges as they are nailed to the fascia I would recommend replacing the drip edges but not the whole roof
