Fascia treatments for gable ends

The fascia on a house’s gable can be tackled in a number of ways. Here are a few examples.

Simple and straightforward.

In this case, the soffit on the side of the house is level, and the corner closes the end.

More elaborate bargeboard – or gingerbread — trim from days of yore.

A return, in this case capped with aluminum, sloping slightly away from the inside corner to shed water.

A variation on the return, with a shingled “roof” over it.

The “eyebrow”, yet another variation on the return. A mini hip roof caps the return.
