These guys are fast and professional! In 6 hours they were done; I mean from the time I called for an estimate until the clean up was complete. Their estimate, contract, payment, and receipt was all online and printable. They even had photos in their estimate. They spotted a problem the insurance company didn't see and broke out an estimate, saving me big headaches in the future. There price was spot on with the insurance estimate but the service makes them a great deal.

Plastic Fascia Preserves your Home's Good Looks for Years

plastic fascia

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.

Rotted wood is a main cause for gutters to get lose or brake. Complete roof inspection before and after winter is a must.

This will make fascia replacement go away. I hope they never come out with a plastic roof shingle!

We've been using plastic fascia on a lot more of our jobs recently. So far, I've been very pleased with the result. Definitely more durable than wood.
