• Why fascias and soffits matter

    bargeboard

    The fascia is mounted at the point where the roof meets the outer walls of the house and is often called the roofline. However most people refer to it by the name of the main board that carries the gutter – the fascia or fascias.j

    The fascia board is the long, straight board that runs along the lower edge of the roof. The fascia is fixed directly to the roof trusses and usually does all the work of supporting the bottom row of tiles and carrying all the guttering.

    A good quality fascia is crucial to your home – when it is raining hard the roof of a 3-bedroom house could be pouring several gallons of water per second into its gutters.

    Bargeboard is the board that is used on the gable end of a house. The condition of the bargeboard can often make or break the look of a house, and they are often in very attractive shapes.

    The soffit board is tucked away under the fascia board. The soffit is usually the board that you see most of from street level. The soffit can be ventilated to allow the flow of air into the roof area – or ventilation can be provided over the top of the fascia board. Without adequate ventilation, condensation will form in the roof void increasing the risk of timber decay.
