Choosing the Best Fascia Colour For Your Home

submitted on 20 October 2020 by kshomeimprovements.co.uk


When replacing and renovating your roof, the fascia is probably not something you first think about. But the under-appreciated bit of wood or uPVC can do more to the overall look of your home than you might think. An incoherent fascia can stick out like a sore-thumb, and equally a well-chosen colour can serve to really enhance the look of the roof line.

What is a Fascia?
The fascias are the boards that run along the bottom line of your roof. In addition to their aesthetic appeal they serve an important function in supporting the lower-edge of the roof, as well as the gutters and downpipes.

So how do you choose the best colour for your fascias?
White is the standard colour for most fascias, gutters and soffits. It's a safe choice as it generally pairs with any style of home. If the fascia is made from uPVC or timber then you can probably paint it any colour you want for a truly unique style, stock colours can also be purchased from most suppliers.

Fascia and soffit are considered trim materials, and the style you choose can have a big impact on the overall look of your home.

Slight pitched roof line
If you can't fully see your roof then it may be a good idea to match to the colour of the roof which can help to extend and define the roof line.

High pitched roof line
If you can see a lot of your roof as it has a high pitch then you may want to match the fascia more closely to the walls instead.

Blend with the gutters, soffits and windows
Ideally you want your home to look balanced and consistent. It's generally recommended to match the colour of the gutters and soffits. You can also achieve greater coordination by matching the same colour to the windows. As most windows and fascias come in white as standard, this tends to happen naturally - if you go for a different colour then consider the windows as well.

What colours work best?
Generally speaking warm and neutral colours work well with brown roofs, and lighter neutrals work well with grey roofs.

Again white works with almost any colour. Various shades of grey and blue can also work well with slate roofs.

Going with the trends
As of 2020, dark grey and other types of grey seem to be popular choices among homeowners.
