Graphical Construction Glossary >> Roofs and roofing. >> fascia board
In the sketch above I have shown a groove at the back of the fascia board for the eaves lining. This lining would be say a flat compressed cement sheet, say 6mm thick. Apart from the groove for the lining, there are a coupe of others. These grooves were made in the back of the timber in an attempt to stop the timber cupping.
Advantages of metal fascias over timber:-
Note for novices! The clips are fixed first to a pair of sting lines on the rafters. Then the fascia is hooked onto the bottom lug of the clip (where the lining groove is) then it is swung into a vertical position and because the top of the clips are sloped, the top of the fascia can be sprung into position.
It is not threaded in from one end, like a set of idiots I that once saw trying to do!
