What are Fascia , Soffits,barge boards

The fascia is mounted at the point where the roof meets the outer walls of your home and is often called the Roofline. However most people refer to it by the name of the main board that carries the gutter and the tiles – the fascia or fascias.

Unfortunately, not many people are familiar with these technical names , so we thought you might appreciate a few words of explanation.


The fascia board is the long, straight board that runs along the lower edge of the roof. The fascia is fixed directly to the roof trusses and usually does all the work of supporting the bottom row of tiles and carrying all the guttering.


This is the board that is used on the gable end of a home or apex as it is also refered to. The condition of the bargeboard can often lets a home due to not getting the maintenance required due to how high they are.


The soffit board is tucked away underneath the fascia board. The soffit can be ventilated to allow the flow of air into the roof area. Alternatively ventilation can be provided over the top of the fascia board. Many people prefer the latter solution these days. Without adequate ventilation, condensation will form in the roof void increasing the risk of timber decay on your home .


The Box End is area that the many different angles of the fascia, soffit and bargeboard meet at each corner of your home where there is a gable end and is often where the first signs of rot are noticed
