Fascia board can be found at the roof line of your home. It also provides support to the gutter system. Fascia can be vulnerable to rot and to pests, such as carpenter bees. Some homeowners don’t have issues with their fascia because it is made from vinyl. However, many homeowners with wooden fascia boards have issues over time. When it comes time to repair or replace that fascia board you may want to consider a more permanent fix than just replacing the fascia board with more wooden fascia boards.
Replacing fascia board with a plastic board can provide a viable option. Vinyl or PVC will not incur water damage and pests cannot boar through the material. However, vinyl can warp with time especially if that part of the home gets plenty of sunshine. Also, it can get pretty costly to replace all of your fascia board with vinyl or PVC boards.
A more permanent solution would be to wrap all fascia boards in white aluminum sheets. Not only will this protect the wooden fascia board from weather damage and pest but it can also save you money in the long run.
When preparing to replace your fascia board you should consider which option is best for you. Replacing damaged pieces of fascia board may save you money in the short term but the other pieces may need replacing in the future as well. Using a vinyl fascia board to replace all the fascia can get costly. We recommend wrapping the fascia board in white aluminum sheets for a less costly and more permanent solution.
