Fitting modern fascia and soffit boards to your home protects the rafter and joist ends from the effects of the weather.
The fascia is mounted at the point where the roof meets the outer walls of the house. The fascia board is the long, straight board that runs along the lower edge of the roof and is fixed directly to the roof trusses and usually does all the work of supporting the bottom row of tiles and carrying all of the guttering.
In a heavy downpour, the roof of a three-bed semi could be washing several gallons of water per second into its gutters.
This is the board that is installed on the gable end of a house. The condition of the bargeboard can often affect the look of a house and is available in some very attractive shapes.
