Why Choose Western Red Cedar Fascia
Cedar fascia is a type of exterior trim material that is commonly used in home construction. It is made from cedar wood, which is known for its durability, natural resistance to rot and insects, and attractive appearance.
Fascia refers to the horizontal band of material that runs along the edge of a roof, covering the rafters and providing a finished look to the structure. Cedar fascia is a popular choice for this application due to its ability to withstand the elements and maintain its beauty over time.
In addition to its functional properties, cedar fascia is also prized for its aesthetic appeal. Cedar wood has a distinctive grain pattern and warm color that can enhance the curb appeal of a home. It can also be stained or painted to match the style of the house or to create a contrasting effect.
Overall, cedar fascia is a versatile and long-lasting option for homeowners who want to add both style and functionality to their homes.
Where and When to use Cedar Fascia
Cedar fascia is a popular choice for homeowners and builders because of its natural beauty, durability, and resistance to weather and pests.
Cedar fascia is particularly suitable for use in areas where there is a high level of moisture, such as in coastal or humid regions, as it is less prone to warping and rotting compared to other types of wood. It can also be used in areas with a dry climate, as cedar wood has natural oils that help to protect it from cracking and splitting.
When installing cedar fascia, it is important to ensure that it is properly sealed and finished to prevent water from penetrating the wood and causing damage. It is also recommended to periodically clean and reseal the wood to maintain its appearance and longevity.
Overall, cedar fascia is a versatile and attractive option for finishing the roofline of a building, particularly in areas with high levels of moisture or dry climates.
