What is fascia board? Sometimes also called soffit board, fascia is a board running horizontally under a roof edge. It covers the openings between the rafters of the roof. Typically consisting of wood, wood substitute, or metal, the fascia board along with the soffit, encloses the attic space of the home. The fascia is commonly helps to hold up, and stabilize gutters.
It is often difficult to tell if the fascia is rotted without first removing the gutter itself. However, if water has been running between the fascia and gutter for some time, then there is a high probability of rotted fascia. A rotted fascia board cannot properly support a gutter system designed to withstand the heavy snow accumulations.
Soffits and fascia are the part of a roof’s structure closest to the gutters. This means that they are the first things to be damaged by water if the home’s gutters become clogged. In addition, they can also fall victim to an infestation of insects or by the nesting of birds and other animals. If you have noticed discoloration and peeling paint, it can be a tell-tale sign that the soffits and fascia of your home have been damaged and your home requires siding repair service.
