Plastic fascia has replaced what used to be wood in so many homes, the trim boards below the bottom edge of the roofline. These boards are called fascia, meaning band, and often are the attachment points for gutters if you home has them. The problem with regular fascia is the usual material is wood, which needs to be sealed with primer and a couple coats of paint to keep moisture and rot out. So a few years later, when the weather has caused peeling paint, you have a decision to make about your best option. Repaint or replace?
Most homeowners work with one of their local contractors to find their options. Although this board requires painting, and would seem to be the work of a painting contractor, usually fascia comes up for discussion when you have roofers working on your home. As they inspect, they may find rotted wood hiding behind your sagging gutters that are just waiting to fall under the weight of an ice dam. This area of a house can be extremely wet, and if not properly cared for can lead to greater damage. Plastic fascia provides an attractive stabile long lasting surface for gutter attachment. Underneath eaves, manufacturers have even created attractive dentil molding made of plastic. When the contractors are inspecting, they may find your roof doesn't warrant roof replacement, and by having them install plastic fascia, you can be sure that your home looks attractive, and your gutters will have a long lasting support.
