While it may not seem like much, fascia board is a very integral part of the roof system. Fascia is like trim for your roof, it runs horizontal along the edge of the roof on the exposed ends of the rafters, which creates a protective layer for the roof.
Not only does fascia board serve an aesthetic function by creating a smooth appearance on the edge of the roof but it also provides protection from weather damage for the rafters that would otherwise be exposed.
Most fascia board is made with wood which can be easily damaged by water and eventually rot and fall apart. Fascia repair and replacement is a fairly simply project that can protect the rafters from falling victim to water damage as well.
In addition to fascia, soffits are also a part of the outer roof system, soffit board is generally tucked away under the fascia board. Some soffits are equipped with vents in order to provide airflow into the roof, which prevents condensation build up and protects the rafters from potential timber decay.
