In northern Utah, facia boards – along with metal soffits and seamless gutters – serve an important role for protecting your home. Our region’s constant barrage of harsh weather conditions poses an on-going risk for water damage and the destruction that can occur in its wake.
If facia becomes damaged, you could face a variety of troublesome and expensive home repairs.
Facia also serves another important purpose, this one related to the appearance and curb appeal of your home. If yours is faded, discolored or rotting away, it can affect your home’s value and visual appeal.
The Gutter Boys, serving customers in and around Salt Lake City, Draper, West Jordan and Sandy, Utah, provide professional aluminum fascia installation and replacement, along with seamless gutter installation, repair and maintenance.
What Is Fascia Board?
Fascia boards extend vertically from the lower edge of your roof, parallel to the walls of the house. These boards cover the ends of the roof trusses and provide support for the bottom row of roofing. These structures protect your home from water damage and help keep rodents and insects from getting into the attic.
The easiest way to spot this feature is to look where your gutters are attached. Chances are, that’s fascia board.
In addition to providing protection and support for your roof and gutters, fascia can also provide a decorative element. Many homeowners use a trim or accent color for their fascia, providing contrast and visual interest to the structure.

The Benefits of Using Metal Fascia in Northern Utah
Although commonly referred to as fascia “board,” you don’t have to use wood – or wood alone – for this purpose. In fact, in Salt Lake City and along the Wasatch Front, you’re much better off if you use aluminum fascia.
Aluminum is lightweight and surprisingly durable. It resists corrosion, fading and rust and requires virtually no maintenance. It can last for years or even decades. It’s fireproof and environmentally friendly, too.
If you already have wood fascia on your home, we recommend adding a layer of aluminum over the top. This not only provides exceptional protection but will instantly improve the exterior look and feel of your home. If your existing wood fascia has damage, you may need to repair that first, before adding a layer of aluminum. Otherwise, the damage could continue to worsen over time and the boards may become incapable of supporting your gutters.
Fortunately, this is a quick and affordable process in most cases. In fact, adding or replacing aluminum fascia is one of the most cost-effective home improvement projects you can undertake. When you let the Gutter Boys handle this work for you, you’ll get the highest quality materials and workmanship at the lowest possible price.
