What is a fascia board?

Besides having an exceptionally fancy-sounding name, fascia boards offer a critical service for homes by maintaining the integrity of the roof’s structure. Fascia boards are where the roof meets the outer walls of the house, often referred to as the roofline. It’s a long, straight board that runs along the lower edge of the roof., fixed directly to the lower ends of the roof trusses and usually does all the work of supporting the lower edge of the bottom row of tiles. It also carries the guttering.

Do I need a soffit board or a fascia board?

There are some specific differences between fascia boards, soffit boards, and bargeboards that you need to be aware of before you make a decision for your home. We’ve highlighted the specific differences between each them below with a helpful guide.

  • Fascia: A long, straight board that runs along the lower edge of the roof that’s directly fixed to the lower ends of the roof trusses and supports the lower edge of the bottom row of tiles. A fascia board also carries the guttering.
  • Soffit: A soffit board is tucked away under the fascia board, usually able to be seen from the street level. The soffit can be ventilated to allow the flow of air into the roof area. Ventilation can also be provided over the top of the fascia board.
  • Bargeboard: Typically used on the gable end of a house, a bargeboard can make your home look better than ever.
