Timber Barge boards & Fascia Boards

Fascia boards are the timber boards that cover the ends of roof edges. They are fitted to your home to give support to the last row of roof tiles and a fixing point for your gutters. They also serve to protect the ends of the roofing joists from weather.
Being constantly exposed to weather, timber and wooden fascia can become perished over time.

Timber fascia is also prone to rot and decay due to water that runs off the roof. Gutters and roof metal drip edges that have been installed poorly can also contribute to rot. Once your timber fascia begins to rot, water can leak inside the soffit and bring about costly damage. A soffit is the underside of your home’s eaves and is generally one of the most vulnerable parts of your home.

It is important to give your timber fascia board the attention it needs, especially when it starts showing signs of wearing. Simplicity By Design can help you determine what extent of rotten timber repair you may need. As a general rule of thumb, you can test the fascia for damage by looking for signs of peeling paint. If you find this, further test it by poking it with an ice pick or screw driver. If the timber board gives way under that pressure, then it is time to have it replaced. All these signs indicate that you will need rotten timber repair.

Replacing damaged timber fascia boards requires the work of a professional. As your home handyman, we can do the job for you at a very reasonable price. If the damage is not severe, we can remove only the damaged wood for you and add short sections to save costs. But in some cases, saving money is not the most economical solution especially when the underlying problem of the damage caused to your fascia board is not addressed.

Repair, Replace or Clad
There are three ways to tackle your worn timber fascia. The first is to simply clad them but bear in mind that the new plastic will be fixed onto an already old and weak fascia. The second option is to rip it all off and replace them with new PVCu (Poly Vinyl Chloride unplasticised) ones, and, thirdly, is to rip it off and replace with new wooden ones.
Simplicity By Design is happy to advise you the right route to take; whether a repair or cladding will suffice or a replacement is necessary. Remember, fascias take not just rainwater and all that the weather throws at them, but also every gutter leak that runs onto them. With all this abuse, they will most certainly deteriorate over a period of time.

Inspect your timber fascia now and then, and when the time comes for a repair or replacement, give us a call and trust that we will look after you and take care of your entire timber fascia board repair and replacement needs plus more.Timber Fascia Board Repair and Replacement
