Houses do not need fascia boards. Probably over 50% of the houses in the US do not have fascia boards. This is a homeowner thing. Their choice.

Besides enhancing the appearance of the house, it usually facilitates the hanging of gutters. The fascia also ties rafter tails together in a straight line, giving them additional strength. The use of fascia boards varies by the location, style and age of the home. 99.9% of houses in my area have fascia.
