When receiving a roof replacement quote or assessment, you might hear the term “fascia” used to describe a very important feature of your building or home. But do you know what this term means?
If you’ve never heard of the term “fascia” before don’t worry! You’re not the only one. In fact, it’s a commonly overlooked part of roofs and roof replacements. However, the fascia plays a very important role in the protection and structure of your roofing system.
A good roof replacement company will explain what a fascia or fascia trim is and give it as much attention as the roof itself.
So what is the fascia on a house, why do you need it, and how can Above & Beyond Roof Replacement ensure it’s in tip top condition? Read on to find out.
What is a Roof Fascia?
First up, the fascia on your roof is not the same fascia as the one in human anatomy! Fascia means “band” or “strip” in Latin and refers to the horizontal board that wraps around your home and covers the exposed roof rafters, trusses and any cavities.
You might know of the fascia as the “trim” and they can be added to your home in a decorative way. But your roof fascia is not just about appearance, it is an essential feature that shields the interior components of your home from the elements.
Why is a Roof Fascia Trim Important?
Your roof fascia or fascia trim is used to protect your home from the elements, wildlife and vermin. However, due to their exterior position and proximity to the guttering system, the fascia board can become quickly damaged in a storm and other adverse conditions. But that’s the idea, the fascia is a barrier, much like the bumper of your car!
However, just like the bumper of your car, you really don’t want your roof fascia to remain damaged or stop working. In particular, fascia board rot can cause significant damage to your home, including water leaks and mould.
If you want to keep your home safe, secure and appealing, then there’s only one option: invest in a roof service with fascia maintenance or replacement.
