A fascia board is a long, straight board that runs horizontally under the lower edge of the roof. Fascias are composed of plastic or wooden boards. Its function is to hold the guttering, support the lower part of the bottom row of tiles, and distribute the weight of the roof evenly. They also cover fittings to protect them from water. This functional roof piece is highly customizable so that you can match the aesthetic of the building.
It is of utmost importance to keep the structural integrity of your home stable — especially with all the harsh weather factors that come with living in the Florida climate. Storms, hurricane winds, and harsh debris will surely test your home and especially the integrity of your roof. Damage to even the strongest of fascias is inevitable, natural wear and tear occur. Fascia boards are prone to rotting, especially if they are exposed to frequent rainfall. The good news is that repair is not troublesome.
