is used to describe the fascia, soffits, bargeboards and cladding that forms the frontage immediately below the roof of most homes. These are traditionally made from wood, but can also be made of plastic for most modern homes.
The fascia board is the long, straight board that runs along the lower edge of the roof. The fascia is fixed directly to the roof trusses and usually supports the bottom row of tiles and holding up the guttering.
The soffit board is tucked away under the fascia board. The soffit can be ventilated to allow the flow of air into the roof area. Alternatively, ventilation can be provided over the top of the fascia board, many people prefer the latter solution. However, without adequate ventilation, condensation will form in the roof increasing the risk of timber decay.
The garage door opens either manually or by an electric button/switch. Small garage doors may be made in a single panel that tilts up and back across the garage ceiling. Larger doors are usually made in several jointed panels that roll up on tracks across the garage ceiling, or into a roll above the doorway. The operating mechanism is spring-loaded or counterbalanced to offset the weight of the door and reduce human or motor effort required to operate the door. Less commonly, some garage doors slide or swing horizontally. Doors are made of wood, metal, or fiberglass, and may be insulated to prevent heat loss.
