    Parents fitted some a few years back to their house, and have had no problems. Saves the painting/maintenance as dad can't go up the ladders any more.

    I can't fit them as my house is listed.:(

    Had mine done 12 years ago and have not had any issues since.

    Easy to clean with a bit of warm water and sugar soap. Might even give mine their first wash soon :)

    Excellent was not sure if it would damage easy being hollow, was looking at upvc shiplap but the thickness of it I think it may stick out too far from the wall.
