- What is a capping fascia board?A capping fascia board is a type of fascia board that is installed over an existing wooden fascia board. It is made of a durable material such as aluminum or PVC and is designed to protect the wooden fascia board from weather damage and rot. It is also used to improve the appearance of the fascia board by covering up any imperfections or discoloration.
- What is the difference between fascia and capping board?Fascia boards are typically installed at the edge of the roofline and serve as a finishing trim to cover the ends of the roof rafters. Capping boards, on the other hand, are installed over existing wooden fascia boards to protect them from weather damage and extend their lifespan. Capping boards are usually made of uPVC or aluminum and are available in a range of colors to match the existing fascia.
- Should there be a gap between roof and fascia?Yes, there should be a small gap between the roof and fascia to allow for proper ventilation and prevent moisture buildup. This gap also helps to prevent damage to the roof and fascia from expansion and contraction due to temperature changes. It is important to ensure that this gap is properly installed and maintained to avoid any potential issues.
- Can you put uPVC fascia over existing wood?Yes, it is possible to install uPVC fascia over existing wood. However, it is important to ensure that the wood is in good condition and free from rot or damage before installation. It is also recommended to use a professional installer to ensure proper installation and avoid any potential issues.
- How thick is a fascia capping board?It depends on the specific product and brand, but fascia capping boards typically range from 9mm to 18mm in thickness. It's important to check the specifications of the product you are considering to ensure it meets your needs.
