What is a Fascia?
A roof fascia is a piece of trim located along the perimeter of a building, usually below the roof level under the roof’s edge. The fascia has both a functional and esthetic purpose. It is often an essential piece used to attach gutters to the edge of the roofline.
Some people may informally describe this as the boards behind the gutter. You may hear this term used more if you’re also considering gutter work through KTM.
Why it Matters
A fascia is designed to cover the rafter tails at the eaves. This piece covers and projects the house from weather and pests, and like many types of trim can deteriorate with time. Not all homes will have a fascia; some will be more open air.
