Fascia is the trim on the side of a deck at floor level. It’s generally done in the same material as the rest of the deck, though interesting contrasts in colour are available with Cellular PVC. There are a few different types of fascia, and they’re all available in wood or cellular pvc.
If saving money is your most important consideration you can go with no fascia. It’s not a mandatory structural compononent of the deck. But it’s an unfinished look, particularly if it’s a Cellular PVC deck, where the “no fascia” option leaves the pressure treated frame exposed to view.
A good budget choice. Simple and attractive.
Double fascia is a little more elaborate than the single choice. You can see it below.
Triple fascia is the most decorative option. It’s a premium look that works best with other visual accessories like beams or filters.
Any of the types of fascia described above can be done curved. It’s a terrific look that can be a motif for the entire deck, with curved steps and beams to match.
