How The Right PVC Fascia Board Can Improve Your Home
If you’re a new homeowner, you’ll have come to realise that there’s a lot more to keeping your house in good condition than you first thought.
This is especially true if you’re looking at maintaining the roof. There’s so much you need to know and replace if the roof is in need of updating.
This guide will tell you everything you need to know about PVC fascia boards, and how the right one can really improve the look of your home.
What Is The Fascia Board?
Put simply, the fascia board is the board that runs just under the tiled section of your roof. You need one on your roof as they’re designed to protect the timber eaves inside the roof itself. If they’re not present, then water can get into the roof, leading the mould and mildew. If this continues, then it can lead to serious damage to your roof.
The fascia board works in conjunction with your soffit boards in order to protect your roof. The soffit is the board that runs between the bottom of the board and the wall, protecting the roof from underneath.
Why PVC Fascia Board?
In all modern homes, you’ll see that most fascia boards are made from PVC. This material has a lot of advantages over the wood that was traditionally used. As it’s a resilient material, it can stand up to a lot of bad weather without taking any damage. As well as this, it can cope with temperature changes without problem, where wood would crack under the pressure.
This doesn’t mean that PVC boards are less attractive than wood. You can still have the look of wood and the resilience of PVC, thanks to wood grain style engraving on them. You can also have PVC boards in almost any colour you can think of, so it matches the rest of your home and looks just how you want it to. The additional bonus here is that you’ll never have to keep repainting it, as it will keep its colour without peeling or flaking.
