angle for fascia board along roof edge??
 
I need to put a 1 x 5 fascia along the edge of the roof line on my new garage so that it will match my house. I can't figure out how to cut the angles at the peak of the roof where the 2 boards will meet because the pitches are different. Is there a trick on how to determine these angles? Here is a pic of my garage. http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l2...10619-1925.jpg

Measure the angle and divide it in half. Cut each side the 1/2 angle.
If it's 135 degrees, each cut will be 67 1/2 degrees.
Is there enough roof overhang to place the boards so it's still covered by the roof?

Yes, I have a 2" overhang on the roof. Thanks for the response. I figured it was something simple.
