If you are considering having new gutters installed – you may have inevitably asked yourself: should my fascia boards be changed when I update my gutters?
Fascia boards are the most important support structure that hold up your gutters. Over time – if not maintained – fascia boards start to rot – and erode – and soon your gutters are at risk of falling off your house. Simply put – there is no point in having new gutter installed without first considering the state of your fascia boards. If you install new gutters onto bad or severely eroded fascia boards – then you run the risk of having your fascia boards fail far earlier than your gutters.
Fascia boards nowadays come from the factory fresh and made to measure. They are primed on all four sides – and are both pressure and water treated. This ensures that the wood will stand up to the elements and will repel average rainfall volumes. A good sign that your fascia board needs replacing are obvious visible signs or rot and decay, and sagging gutters.
Fascia Boards – much like gutters and downpipes – when adequately maintained – should last an average of 20 – 30 years. Contact Dynamic Gutters & Exteriors Ltd today for your free, no-obligation quote for getting your fascia boards and gutters replaced.
