As a homeowner, there are many different things you need to keep in mind when it comes to your roof. Obviously, you want your roof to be in good condition, from the edges to the very top, and everything in between. Today we are going to talk about a component on the edge of your roof, known as the roofing fascia. We will go over what fascia is, and how you can recognize signs of damage on your fascia.
What Is Roof Fascia?
The fascia is the part of your roof that protects the edges from wind and rain. It is also used as a place to secure your home’s rain gutters.
How To Tell If Your Fascia Needs Repairs
A simple visual examination will uncover whether your fascia needs professional attention or replacement. If you know that your fascia is pretty old, then you should call for an expert inspection to assess how well it is performing.
Peeling Paint: Paint that has started to peel will cause an unsightly problem that affects your house’s curb appeal. Peeling paint has no ability to defend your fascia wood from rot. Rotten fascia should get replaced, since it can no longer render its job effectively. At the bare minimum, a new paint job will deliver an instant facelift for your house.
Water Damage: Spending years as a mount for your rain gutters can make fascia liable to water deterioration. This occurs most frequently when your gutters start to overflow onto the fascia, ceasing to perform the right way. Simple old age will also cause it to happen. The interior of your roofing will be susceptible to wear as water causes your fascia boards to bend and come loose.
