Fascia is the end cap that hides the rafters that support the roof. Rain gutters are attached to the fascia & an easy way to remember where the fascia is, is that it is where you attach the Christmas lights. Fascia can be made of any type of wood & can be any size. Fibrous connective tissues are what fascia is all about, & fascia is becoming an ever – more popular solution in hundreds of homes & business locations alike.
In order to keep Fascia in mint condition, it is important to keep it clean. To clean Fascia, mix some water with mild detergent in a bucket. Then spray a section of the fascia with water from a hose. This initial step will help loosen & dirt & grime which will make cleaning easier. Next go ahead & set up a ladder near where you would like to start the cleaning. Using a brush saturate it in soap & water & then scrub the fascia. Then rinse off the scrubbed areas & spray down the next area with water. Continue this cycle of rinsing & cleaning until the entire Fascia is complete. If there are any stubborn stains, a trick is to use 1/3 cup of vinegar & 2/3 cup of water in a spray bottle & then spray & scrub well.
