Fascia and Soffits
What Are Fascias?
The fascia is mounted at the point where the roof meets the outer walls of the house. This is often referred to as the ROOF-LINE. Most people refer to it by the name of the main board that carries the gutter – the fascia. Not many people are actually familiar with these terms, so here are a few words to help familiarise yourself. 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. This is no mean feat, especially when it is raining hard. In a downpour the roof of a 3-bed semi could be washing several gallons of water per second into its gutters.
What Are Soffits?
The soffit board is tucked away under the fascia board. It 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. Alternatively, ventilation can be provided over the top of the fascia board. Many people prefer the latter solution these days. Without adequate ventilation, condensation will form in the roof void increasing the risk of timber decay.

Soffit & Fasica Installation
Soffits are an integral part of the roofline system enclosing and protecting the underside of the roof edge, while providing ventilation to the inner roof area to minimise the risk of trapped moist air. They provide a highly effective and visually appealing long-term solution to regular maintenance.
Hollow soffit is another popular choice because of its attractive paneled effect and installation friendly tongue and groove profile. The hollow soffit range comes in a choice of 100mm and 300mm widths with accompanying ventilation accessories. Other soffit products available include open v and shiplap boards with related trims.
Fascia are thoroughly cleaned and any sealing that is needed will be done. A fitter will then spend time at the end of the job to inspect the work carried out and your house and will be left clean and tidy with gleaming new fascias.
