What is a Fascia Board?
Fascia board is a key component of any roofing system. It ties into the rafters at the eave of the roof, providing structural support and helping to keep your rafter tails in alignment as the home and roof settle. Additionally, fascia board is essential in finishing off the eave and, when combined with soffit, can help to seal the eave off from rodents and other wildlife. Most importantly, fascia board provides a surface to which the gutter can be attached, allowing the gutter to collect water pouring down the roof. It is important to have your fascia boards inspected by a professional prior to any gutter work.
Why is it important?
Ignoring fascia problems while working on your gutters can become costly down the line. We often come across gutters that have fallen off of houses due to weakened or loose fascia boards. When this happens, the eaves of your home are exposed to wildlife and the elements, which can quickly lead to destruction and dysfunction. Without proper protection, your home is at risk of infestations, water damage, and other potential hazards. It is important to take the necessary steps to ensure your fascia boards remain in good condition to avoid these issues in the future.
Why do I need to have the fascia board inspected?
When your gutters are not managing water properly, it can cause a build-up of moisture. This can cause your wooden fascia boards to rot, which can quickly become a major issue. If the moisture continues to build up, water can soak through the fascia boards and damage your roof’s rafter tails. If you have already begun to notice water mismanagement issues with your gutters, it is important to make sure your fascia boards are stable and reinforced. Repairing or replacing damaged fascia boards requires removing your gutters. It is crucial to take precautions when you begin to notice these issues to ensure your home and roof are secure.
