The fascia board is the one mounted at the point where the roof meets the outer walls of the house. This is often called the ROOFLINE. However, most people refer to it by the name of the main board that carries the gutter – the fascia or fascias.
Unfortunately, not many people are familiar with these terms, so we thought you might appreciate a few words of explanation.
The descriptions uPVC, PVCu, and PVCue are often used to describe PVC fascias, soffits and bargeboards. You probably know what PVC means. The “u” stands for “unplasticised”, meaning that it isn’t a pliable PVC like some kids toys etc. The “e” stands for “expanded”, Expanded or foamed PVC produces a light, strong board that is thicker than an equivalent rigid PVC board.
