fascia

 

/ˈfeɪʃɪə,ˈfeɪʃə/

 

noun

 

  1. a board or other flat piece of material covering the ends of rafters or other fittings.

“a further piece of chipboard acts as a fascia to disguise the ceiling fixtures”

  • (in classical architecture) a long flat surface between mouldings on an architrave.

 

In architecture, a fascia is a continuous flat band that is moulded around the edge of the roof. Therefore, a conservatory fascia is purpose-built exclusively for a conservatory. At Boyland Windows, we’ll advise you on the design, materials and regulations that typically come with the building process. Conservatory fascias are often made with wood, UPVC or metal. When fitting our builds, we work closely in partnership with Leka Systems. This means we can have fascias manufactured in a range of shapes and colours to suit the chosen style of your conservatory.

 

Conservatory Fascia

How does the conservatory fascia work?

 

Fascias run along the lower edge of a roof and overhangs the conservatory’s outer wall.

 

Fixed directly to the lower end of the roof trusses, conservatory fascia’s chief purpose is to support the lower edge of the tile or slate roof options. However, they also help close the gap between the roof and the wall. Fascias are typically affixed to the side of a GRP rafter system and support the conservatory’s guttering. This is no easy feat in England as the English weather is capable of delivering several gallons of water per second down said gutter!

 

However, fascias do not work alone. They work in combination with several components, including something known as a soffit. A soffit is positioned underneath the fascia and is easily identifiable when looking up. However, it should be known that inadequate ventilation can provoke condensation to form in this roof void. Should this occur, it could potentially increase the risk of decay. Fortunately, both fascias and soffits can be manufactured to accommodate for ventilation solutions.

 

Both the fascia and soffit are secured to something known as a bargeboard. This board is fixed to the gable end of a conservatory and comes in a bespoke range of styles depending on the styling of your conservatory. It’s tapered off with what’s known as a box end, which has to accommodate the mixture of heights and angles of the fascia, soffit and bargeboard. Together, these components help seal the roof and are collectively known as the roofline. This is because they’re indicative of where the roof meets the outer wall of the conservatory.
