Exterior Home Remodeling - Fascia

Fascia Board Purpose

The fascia board serves an actual function on almost all houses.  

The fascia board is what the gutter is secured to and as a result of the connection, it is important to take the right steps when replacing gutters on the exterior of a home.  Rotted or warped fascia board may interact negatively on the overall performance of the gutter system, including water sliding behing the gutter and into an exterior wall or window opening.   Adding fascia capping to the fascia after gutters have been installed is likely going to lead to long terms issues, including leaking and wood exposure to long term moisture. 

If it is time to replace gutters around a Maryland home it is wise to find the right maintenance free solution for the fascia BEFORE having the gutters installed.  It is a costly mistake to double back and consider the fascia boards after new gutters are installed.  To properly seal the fascia board, the gutters must be removed and it is impossible to preserve and re-hang new seamless gutters once they have been installed.

Notice the connection between the fascia, soffit and gutter.
