Dress up one of the most visible parts of your deck
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. 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, facia 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.
Hello! I’m David, one of the Project Developers here at Woodland Deck Company. Before Woodland, I obtained my bachelor's degree from The Ohio State University and worked in the landscape industry. Outside of work I enjoy soccer, golf, and pretty much anything to do with the outdoors. On weekends, my wife and I enjoy spending time with family and volunteering for our church’s youth group. The thing I like most about Woodland Deck is the great group of people I get to work with on a daily basis!
