The Different Materials Used In Fascia

The Different Materials Used In Fascia

If you’re a homeowner and you’re unfamiliar with fascia, you are not alone. Many homeowners don’t consider their fascia since it is largely hidden when viewing the home from the road. Despite how little recognition it receives, fascia is an important part of the home and can greatly impact the effectiveness and appearance of your roof. Fascia is the lining on the underside of the roof that is visible beneath the roof overhang. Fascia gives the roof a clean, finished appearance, it helps keep moisture out of the soffit, it supports the gutters, and it creates a transition between the roofline and the home. When the time comes for fascia repairs or replacement, there is a selection of materials that you can choose from that vary in price, functionality, and look.

Fascia Materials To Choose From

Wood
Wood, typically spruce, pine, or fir, is the traditional choice for fascia. Wood tends to be the most affordable option during construction, however, it is prone to rot. This leads to a shorter lifespan than other materials and increased costs to replace over time compared to a long-lasting fascia material. To help the wood last longer, it can be primed and painted using a water-resistant finishing treatment.

Vinyl
This durable material is simple to install and is rising in popularity. Because of the ease of installation due to the flexibility of vinyl, fascia made of this material has low installation costs. Vinyl is rust and rot resistant and is less susceptible than wood to insects such as termites.

Unplasticized Vinyl
This form of vinyl is less flexible than regular vinyl, but it requires very little maintenance and tends to give the home a very pleasant, finished look. The smooth surface of unplasticized vinyl allows for good water flow and this material is very weather resistant.

Composite
This material is made of recycled wood chips and sawdust that is then bonded together using epoxy resin. Although composite is a higher-priced material than others like wood, it is rot-resistant, sturdy, and does not discolour.

Aluminum
This highly durable material is also flexible and people sometimes will use aluminum in tandem with their wood fascia by wrapping it around the wood to protect the fascia from the weather. Aluminum is easy to install and the colour can be customized either by ordering the aluminum itself in one of the many colours available or by painting it yourself.

Deciding Which Material Is Right For Your Home
If you need new fascia installation, there are multiple features to take into consideration. Often, homeowners choose the low-cost option but consider the durability of the material and how often it will need to be replaced, as this will add to the expense. Also, consider the appearance of the material and your home and the colour options available. If you are having your fascia professionally installed, you will not have to be as concerned about the flexibility of the material and how easy it is to work with, but it may influence how long the project takes and labour costs. And if you are unsure which material is right for your home and your needs, consult with a facia repair expert.

FAQs

Yes, if you notice dirt or discolouration, most types of fascia can be wiped down with a damp cloth. Try to avoid spraying the fascia with water, especially at high power, as this can get water into the ventilation system and cause mold development.
