Of course there are commonly discussed parts of a roof, such as the shingles and the gutters. However, understanding the smaller, less common features of yo,ur home’s roof becomes important when your contractor is suggesting a costly repair. In addition to the shingles and the gutters, there are two important aspects of your roof known as the fascia and the soffits. As these are not always commonly discussed home features, it is helpful to understand their important when it comes to making roofing decisions. Here at RAK Renovations, it is our pleasure to not only teach you about the many complexities of your home, but also why the overlooked elements of the exterior could be costing you money.

The fascia board is the vertical finishing edge that holds the gutter to the roof. The primary role of the fascia is to act as a layer between the edge of the roof and the outdoors, and is meant to protect the wooden board from water damage that can occur during certain weather conditions. Aside from its functional role, the fascia also plays a very important aesthetic role since it creates a smoother, more even appearance for the edge of the roof.

Unfortunately, it is common for the fascia to be damaged and need repair from time to time. Fascia repair is normally required due to its placement and functionality. If you have noticed your fascia is beginning to rot or show other signs of damage, call the RAK Renovations team immediately.
