One of the most visible parts of any deck is its fascia. Fascia is the vertical band of material that borders below the deck surface. The main purpose of fascia on a composite deck is to conceal the outer rim joist and serve as a transition piece from deck to skirting.
Fascia material can come in various colors and sizes based on each application. When choosing fascia color for your deck, It’s typically a good idea to match either the railing or deck border color.
- Azek - 1x10 white Azek is often the most popular choice for customers. Since Azek is 100% PVC, it can be easily attached to the rim joist with galvanized finish nails.
- Another option is to use two deck boards as fascia. Customers often chose this option if they want to match an exact color to their decking, border, or railing.
- The third type of fascia is tiered fascia. This is a signature detail that will make your deck stand out from your neighbors. Tiered fascia is simply stacking 1x4 piece of PVC on top of the 1x10 flat fascia described above. This will give a look, similar to crown molding in your house
If building a traditional treated lumber deck, fascia is not required since the rim joist can be stained matching the deck surface.
When it comes to selecting fascia, keep in mind these simple options to dress up one of the most noticeable parts of your deck.
About the Author
Hello! I’m David, one of the project developers here at Woodland Deck Company. I was introduced to construction at a young age working alongside my Dad. With love for the outdoors, I decided to pursue a degree in horticulture from The Ohio State University. After college, I was fortunate to gain experience working in the landscape industry which eventually led me to Woodland Deck Company.
The thing I like most about Woodland Deck is the great group of people I get to work with daily! If I could describe the culture in one word, it would have to be “family”. One thing I enjoy the most is our Monday morning huddles. Everyone gets to share their “highs” and “lows” of the week. It’s a great time to get to know and encourage one another.
I am blessed to be married to my high school sweetheart and to raise our beautiful daughter together. On weekends we enjoy spending time outdoors or with our extended families. Some of our best memories have been vacationing in Hilton Head and Florida.
When I find free time, I enjoy a round of golf with friends or fishing in my pond. A few passions of mine are gardening, woodworking, and playing the drums.
I look forward to helping you create your outdoor place of enjoyment!
