Vinyl Fascia Boards
Vinyl is another material you might want as your fascia because it’s durable and easy to install. They don’t rust or rot. Financially, they save you more than wood boards owing to their lower maintenance costs. So even though you’ll spend more during installation than wood to install vinyl, you save in the long term because they require minimal maintenance work. If you must repair vinyl, you’ll still spend less than aluminum and wood. While they can discolor when exposed to sun rays, vinyl boards only require spraying and wiping down to get them back to shape.
You can get vinyl in any color you choose. Most importantly, vinyl fascia boards come in kits ready to install – and they are readily available in local stores.
The biggest undoing for vinyl fascia boards is their response to weather condition variations. They expand and contract drastically to respond to the heat changes in the environment. A good roofer will ensure they use the J and F channel during installation to curb this issue. They must also seal every joint tightly to prevent moisture from penetrating into the inside of your home. And to avoid fading during exposure to the UV rays, we seal vinyl fascias.
Composite Fascia Boards
If you are looking for an eco-friendly fascia material, then composite will work great for you. Composite is a combination of several materials including plastic, wood chips, and dust held together using epoxy resin. These boards are cut and installed just like wood boards. But they are resistant to rot and very durable compared to other solutions. And all along, they require minimal maintenance.
If composite fascia boards get damaged for some reason, they are very difficult to repair. It’s impossible to refinish this board material as well. Their price is also very high compared to other fascia board materials (except aluminum) that’s why they are not as common as other materials on this list.
Why Get a Roofing Expert for Your Fascia Board Installation?
Installing fascia boards is an easy task that can be tempting for some people to climb their roofs and do the job on their own. But before you do this, you should know that it’s equally a challenging task. Removing the existing fascias can easily damage your roof if you don’t know what you are doing. Besides, there is no one simple way to install all types of fascia materials. Individual material has its own way of being installed.
Hiring an expert who is aware of all these types of fascia materials and understands the best way to install them is the way to go. With a professional handling your job, you don’t have to worry about accidents on your property. Even if it happens, the contractor is insured. Above everything else, you get quality results that will last to the maximum.
