A Fascia board is a long horizontal board that runs around the edge of a roof, where the roof meets the outer walls of a building. A fascia board overhangs the wall of a building to bridge the gap between the walls and the roof, and provides a clean, tidy and refined finish to any building. The fascia is usually used with a soffit or an “eave”, which is found between the board and the rafter. It has no specific use, but it gives a clean look to your house and covers unattractive rafters.

The purpose of a fascia board is to ensure no moisture enters the roof or interior of any building. They also help to secure the last row of roof tiles on a building and carry the guttering system, so it is imperative that the fascia board is sturdy to withstand the weight of any rainfall.

Traditionally Facia boards were made of timber, but uPVC has become the material of choice in recent years for many reasons which can be explained further below.

uPVC fascia boards come in a wide range of styles, colours, and sizes, so they can be matched to all styles of buildings.
