When Is It Time To Replace Fascia?
Fascia is a vital part of your roof structure and gutter line. Not only do they protect your roof by keeping out water, rodents, and debris, but they also give your home a more finished look. Through the harsh Australian climate, it’s not uncommon for fascia to deteriorate over time if not well-maintained, and when this happens, it’s often easier to replace them rather than repairing. Below are five signs you may consider calling one of our specialists here at King Group Australia, to repair or replace the fascia at your property.
1. Cracks and Flaking Paint
Fascia plays a functional and aesthetic role. Since cracks not only look bad but also lead to leaking, it is usually best to hire a professional to remove the damaged pieces and supply and install new fascia.
2. Evidence of Pests
Nothing can be more annoying and troublesome than having pests in your home. Everything from birds, rats and other rodents can cause severe damage to your roof. However, fascia is designed to keep them out of your roof cavity and home, so if you find that they are still getting into your household, it could indicate a problem with your fascia.
3. Water in Roof or Leaks?
Water can quickly cause a lot of damage to your roof if left unnoticed. Whether it leads to rot, mould, or both, you could face some costly repairs before your home is even safe for you and your family again. For that reason, it’s best to regularly check your fascia to see if water leaks into your roof cavity or walls.
