Fascia Installation in Charlotte
Fascia can be damaged by a number of elements, including wind, hail, rain, snow and ice. In many cases, fascia also wears out and naturally needs to be replaced over time.
To improve your home, our team will match your fascia to the rest of your home’s exterior and the soffit you currently have. We’ll custom blend the fascia to fit your home, providing you with many different colors to choose from. Vision Roofing will bring fascia material to your home and bend it on site, shaping it into the correct profile for your home.
Vision Roofing will also work with any gutters you have attached to existing fascia and can help with gutter replacement and protection systems as well. For information or an inspection on the gutters and gutter guards on your fascia, see our Charlotte Gutter Services.
What to Expect from Our Fascia Services
All our services are customized based on the project, but in general you can expect:
- A professional consultation and evaluation of your home’s needs. That may include a storm damage evaluation or simply an inspection of your home’s current condition.
- A conversation with one of our experts to determine the best fascia material and color to match or accent your home’s existing look and feel. The fascia’s color will be custom blended to ensure you get the color you want.
- A contractor will arrive at your home at a pre-scheduled time. They will bring professional equipment that will bend the fascia to fit your home’s exterior.
Most fascia installation services can be done in a day, so after your initial consultation we will work with you to find the most convenient time to install new fascia for your home. Our team will work around your schedule and leave your home better protected from the elements – and better looking – than when we arrived.
Soffit, the siding located on the underside of roof overhangs, is typically matched to your house siding, which is usually vinyl, wood, or aluminum. Proper soffit will improve venting in your home, keeping airflow that discourages mold and moisture buildup.
Vision Roofing will inspect, and replace damaged soffit. For new homes or home expansions, we will install soffit on Charlotte homes. Our soffit services ensure your eaves and overhangs are properly outfitted to protect your home’s interior and exterior.
How Much Does Fascia Cost?
The typical cost range for roof fascia replacement in Charlotte is $600 to $6000. The cost depends on the type of material selected as well as the complex conditions of the roof and structure. Homes with numerous rooflines and levels may require additional funds. Products such as Hardie Board and composite may cost more. For about 250 linear feet, the average for a moderately sized home, expect to pay around $3500 for basic materials.
It’s also important to consider materials. Recently, the cost of materials has risen between 5 and 10 percent due to a drop in manufacturing activity. That means the cost of fascia replacement may increase by that much for materials. Long delivery times are also a concern, sometimes impacting the availability of labor.
How Long Does Fascia Last?
Fascia (along with soffits) lasts for 20 or more years, depending on conditions and care. Regular inspection is recommended to spot problems early to extend the life of the fascia. If replacing the roof, it is a good idea to inspect the fascia then to determine if replacement is warranted. If so, it may be cost-effective to replace it at that point. However, it is not always necessary to replace fascia with every roof replacement.
Why Is Investing in New Fascia a Good Investment?
Investing in a new fascia is a wise decision because it protects the integrity of the roof and, as a result, the structure of the home. Fascia and soffit work to stop water from blowing into the home during a rainstorm. They also keep pests out – including birds and squirrels that may nest in the roof eaves otherwise. Also, when fascia has damage, it can cause gutters to sag, leading to damage and ineffective function of those systems. If the fascia has damage, it also exposes the roof’s wood frame, creating an increased risk for mold damage as moisture seeps in.
Fascia and soffit also add value to the home. They can hide ventilation systems, making for a more aesthetic view of the house.
Signs It Is Time to Replace the Fascia on Your Home
A professional inspection is the best way to know when it is necessary to replace the fascia. Some other signs include:
- Evidence of rotting wood, especially if it falls apart when touched
- Chipped sections or chipped paint (the pain works as a seal minimizing moisture exposure)
- Evidence of mold, algae, or fungus growth (green, black, or other discolorations on the surface)
- Bite marks or openings from rodents
- Sections sagging in the center
- Cracks in the structure
- Missing or falling boards
The Benefits and Importance of Replacing Your Fascia
Routine inspection and replacement of damaged fascia is critical to minimizing structural damage to a roof or a home. When fascia has damage, such as it sagging or falling from the structure, it creates exposure risks including to pests, water, and storm damage.
Replacing the fascia minimizes the risk of damage to the roof itself. If the fascia is in poor condition, the wood underneath is exposed, allowing for moisture to build up, and in some cases, allow the ends of the rafters supporting the roof to rot. As that happens, the roof warps and suffers damage, leading to the need for a repair or replacement.
Replacement of the fascia offers clear benefits:
- It keeps small animals and pests out.
- It hides the ventilation for the attic space.
- It protects the wood structure of the roof and home.
- The home’s exterior has a smooth, well-maintained look.
- It minimizes moisture exposure for the whole home.
