Covering wood fascia with aluminum provides a superior alternative to painting. Fascia is an important element in your roof structure and soffits, and deciding how to protect it is more important than just deciding which color to use. Fascia boards can be covered using pre-formed aluminum fascia or field-formed aluminum trim coil. And it completely covers the fascia board from the drip edge to the soffit. Professional installers will tell you that properly-installed aluminum fascia looks better than painted wood from the first day of installation, and looks better over the years.
