Replacing Your Rake Board
Feb 13, 2015
A rake board. It’s not just what you use to clear your lawn of fallen leaves. On a gable roof, the rake board, or fascia, is the slanting edge at the end wall of the house. Contact H & S Roofing and Gutter to replace the rotten rake boards into beautiful new ones.
Wood is the most commonly used material for a fascia. Raking on a gable roof can easily be replaced with Hardie boards. Even though this job is relatively simple, it requires two professionals to install - one to stand on the ladder and install them, the other to hand up the cut pieces.
Each of the cut pieces has to be hooked along the trim edge and then screwed into place. A protection of rubber gaskets placed between the screws is then added to seal the hole. These actions are then repeated uniformly around all edges of the home.
If you need your rake boards replaced, don’t hesitate to contact H & S Roofing and Gutter.
