In most cases, the 'Fascia' is made of wood, then it is covered by a thin sheet of aluminum, or plastic to keep the weather off!
When the aluminum is installed, it should lay flat against all the exposed wooden surface. However, the installer, for what ever reason, may have left space between the bottom of the wood and the aluminum sheeting!
To find out, if this is the case, drill a small hole upwards, thru the aluminum, then push a paper clip that has been straightened out, into the hole. You should be able to feel it encounter the wood inside! This will tell you how far, the wood is in! Knowing this, you can buy wood screws (brass is best) that are long enough to be screwed into the wood. Buy some washers and slip them on to the screws before installing them. Then, wrap your wire around the screws and then back around itself. The washers will keep the wire from pulling off the screws!
