What can happen when your fascia has dry rot?

The fascia boards are the vertical boards that cover the ends of rafters and are usually where gutters are mounted. They are typically made of wood (though they can also be made of composite, vinyl, or fiber cement, among other materials), which makes them vulnerable to rotting.

While there are other factors that contribute to rot, two of the most common are improper installation of gutters and drip edges — the latter being the type of flashing installed at the roof’s edge. Poor installation can leave holes or cracks in the fascia that exposes the bare wood to moisture, which can later result in rot. Lack of maintenance can result in blistered and peeling paint on the fascia boards, which can also expose the boards to moisture.
