Fascia Boards and Soffits

Your guttering is attached to an item known as the fascia board. This caps the end of rafters outside a building. Modern UPVC fascia boards can attach directly to the rafters in your roof making the use of a timber substrate unnecessary. Other than standard styles, fascia boards also come in ogee sculpted styles.

The area beneath the fascia is known as the soffit or eave. One option is a hollow soffit board, a lightweight, cost-effective solution which can be fitted with ventilators. These ensure the loft is always well-ventilated to protect your rafters from rot and reduce damp. Guttering, fascia and soffits were once made from a wide choice of materials including steel, copper and aluminium. However, nowadays items made from UPVC are extremely popular as it’s the perfect low-maintenance material. Known in the United States as vinyl or vinyl siding, it has many qualities that make it ideal for rainwater systems.
