The wood beneath your gutters is called a fascia board. It runs horizontally under a roof edge that covers the openings between the rafters of the roof and is used as the main mounting support for a home’s rain gutter system. The fascia board typically consisting of wood, wood substitute, metal, or wood with metal cladding, along with a soffit board, encloses the attic space of most homes.
Over time water deteriorates this board and causes your gutters to sag away from the house. This can be caused by short shingles allowing water to flow behind the gutter system, clogged gutters overflowing the back of the gutter, leaking seams, and or leaking corners. In any case, it is imperative for the rotten wood to be replaced to prevent the rain gutter system from falling off the house or to enable a new rain gutter system to be installed properly and securely.
