Fascia Board Replacement
We offer professional wood replacement.
There are many reasons the wood your gutter system is
installed on may not be suitable for re-installation of your new
- The wood behind the old gutter system has been exposed to
moisture causing it to rot.
- Your old system was installed using spikes and ferules and the
wood has been split or broken.
- Previous wood replacement was not done by a professional and
is not installed properly causing it to be loose with a great
chance that it will with any weight from snow, ice or debris fall off
the house. (some times after a new roof has been installed
especially if sheathing has been replaced the fascia board is left
When we install any new wood we use only quality materials
that match your existing construction.
- We prime both sides and paint the exterior side to match your
existing color. (using your paint or we will try to color match as

- Some construction styles were designed for speed of build not

installed to meet the fascia for a strong long lasting installation.

drip edge and the fascia board you have enough clearance. This a
common problem and can be rectified by installing custom drip edge
over top the existing. By leaving the existing drip edge you will have a
built in stop that in most cases give you just the right clearance.
