and the surrounding communities, Northeast has exterior trim boards in stock or can quickly order and deliver specific pieces to your job site, regardless of where your project is located.
Exterior trim boards have been used by home builders for centuries to create eye-catching details that make homes located in all areas of the country look unique. Most of these details also serve a very real purpose to protect your home from the severe weather fluctuations in the Northeast while also adding to your home’s curb appeal.
Many of these trim pieces are used along the roofing of your home, the windows and doors, or the other exterior areas such as garage doors, porches, or patio areas. Some of these exterior trim boards are necessary while some are purely for aesthetics.
Trim around the roof of a home includes soffits, fascia, and gutters. Soffits and fascia boards are essential pieces of the roof. Fascia boards tie the eaves, or overhangs of the roof, to the rafters and truss tails of the home. This connection keeps the roof from separating or sagging, especially in areas where weather conditions can be severe. In areas where snow and ice accumulate on roofs and in rain gutters, fascia boards support the gutters and prevent them from detaching from the roof.
Soffits are exterior trim boards that sit beneath the eaves of a roof and protect the area from wind and rain. The use of soffits can differ greatly from one home to another. In some homes, soffits can be barely noticeable. In homes with large covered porches, soffits can be a startling design element and have a huge visual impact on the home.
Gutters work in unison with the roof to keep water from invading a home. The roof’s slope guides water to the gutters, which moves the water to downspouts and away from the foundation of a home. There are many types of gutter designs, and gutters are made from metal and custom fit to the specific requirements of the home.
