Fascia & Soffit Installation and Repair in Charleston, SC. All Styles, Shapes, and Colors.
Fascia is a board that sits perpendicular to the roof line line of your home. It provides support to the gutters and drainage system of the roof. From the ground it may appear that the soffit and fascia boards just need a new coat of paint. If you probe the wood once you get up close, it may be apparent they need repair or replacing.
If this area is rotten or damaged and are not repaired promptly, it can lead to serious problems. Some of these problems would include: exposing the eaves, overhangs, rafters and other parts of the roof to water damage, rotting leaves, termites and much more.
What causes the fascia board to rot?
Fascia boards that are rotted in different areas of the eaves are usually due to holes and cracks in the shingles above. In some instances shingles are laid over the sharp ends of mitered fascia or trim boards. The point of the joint often is higher than the end of the rafters and decking. This my create large holes over time that will let water into the cornice area between the house and fascia board.
Soffit and fascia can be damaged when shingles fail to direct water into gutters due to missing shingles or gutters that have pulled away from the house. Another common reason is that a gutter installation was done improperly, or wasn’t cleaned regularly. This will cause the gutters to overflow and constantly soak the fascia board.
