The track is color-matched to the soffit or fascia on your home. It is fastened permanently to the soffit by sliding the one side of the track under the L-trim of the fascia and inserting a color-matched screw into the other side.
If the home has deep fascia that is proud of the soffit by more than 2 inches, we use what’s called a backtrack where the track is mounted on the backside of the deep fascia so that the lights are flush with the bottom of the fascia. In both cases and because of the location where the track is installed, the lights are protected from any wind, rain, and hail. No more ugly dangling wires. No more having to replace strands that get blown off by the wind or damaged by the hail.
