The history and evolution of aluminum fascia trim

"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works." - Steve Jobs

As homeowners, we all want our homes to not only look beautiful, but also function well and stand the test of time. One important aspect of a home's exterior that plays a role in both its appearance and functionality is the fascia trim.

Fascia board is the horizontal board that runs along the lower edge of a roof and is typically visible from the street. It serves as a protective barrier for the home, helping to keep water and other elements out of the roof structure. It also serves as a decorative element, adding visual interest to the exterior of a home.

Wood is the most common material used for fascia trim. However, wood has a number of drawbacks as a building material. It is prone to rot, warping, and insect damage, and requires regular maintenance in the form of painting or staining to keep it looking good. In addition, wood can be expensive and not very environmentally friendly, as it requires the cutting down of trees.

As a result, other materials have been developed as a covering for wood fascia trim. One such material is vinyl cladding, which has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its low cost and low maintenance requirements. However, vinyl has its own set of drawbacks, including a tendency to fade and become brittle over time, and a lack of natural beauty compared to wood.

Enter aluminum fascia cladding. Aluminum has been used as a building material for centuries, but it has only recently gained popularity as a fascia trim material. Aluminum has a number of benefits over wood and vinyl, including its durability, low maintenance, and resistance to fading and corrosion. It is also environmentally friendly, as it can be recycled indefinitely without losing its strength or quality.
