A Fascia board is most easily described as the board that your gutters are attached to. In many Boston area homes, this board will be a 1 by 8 or 1 by 10 fascia board. It's purpose is generally aesthetic and provides an attachment point for gutters, but can also provide a barrier between the outside and the inside of the attic or the base of the roof rafters. Fascia boards need maintenance or replacement often, they are usually not rot or decay resistant like pressure treated or cedar, and due to their thin profile are especially prone to rot.
This proclivity of the fascia to rot leads many homeowners to look to cover their fascia board with aluminum trim to keep the weather away, or even to replace the fascia with composite materials that resist rot. Composite fascia or vinyl fascia is the best option, bu the priciest. Often when paying for a vinyl siding or gutter installation is a good time to make sure you cover your fascia boards or replace them with composite fascia or vinyl fascia as this is either included or a small incremental expense.
