Rake Board: A rake board is an eave which runs along the gable end of the roof of a mod­ern res­i­den­tial struc­ture. It is a place on your home eas­i­ly vis­i­ble to guests of your home. Rot­ten and dam­aged boards should be replaced to improve the look and extend the life of your roof. 


Frieze Board: A frieze board is a hor­i­zon­tal board between 2 inch­es and 6 inch­es wide.


Fas­cia: Fas­cia is a ver­ti­cal frieze board. 


Sof­fit: A sof­fit con­nects the over­hang under your gut­ter­ing sys­tem with your home. Sof­fits pro­tect against mold and rot­ting wood work. 


Gut­ters:  A gut­ter is a shal­low trough fixed beneath the edge of a roof for car­ry­ing off rain­wa­ter. Main­tain­ing your gut­ters will extend the life of your roof.


Down­spouts: Down­spouts are pipes that car­ry rain­wa­ter from a roof to a drain or to ground lev­el.


Gut­ter Screens/Protection: Gut­ter screens and gut­ter pro­tec­tion sys­tems pro­tect your gut­ters from debris and leaves by pre­vent­ing them from clogs.
