Carpentry or roofing?


I have a house with a flat top roof and I'm concerned about the boards that create the overhang from the edge of the roof. They appear to be 1X12 boards and run the entire perimeter of the roof. Some of them are warped and starting to pull away from the underlying structure. I would like to get them replaced before they create serious moisture damage and or compromise the actual roofing surface. Can anyone tell me the proper material to use for this job and the basics for attacking the problem? Thanks!!!

I would replace these with azek. This way it will be maintenance free forever. A carpenter would be the one to do the work and install the new flashing over the top edge of the new fascia

A composite board that is workable like wood, but will not rot, need painting but can be painted and insect resistant.

You can use treated wood, or regular wood as long as it is capped.If you can remove the old ones with out ruining the drip edge then you simple slide them up under it. Treated wood has to be covered to be caped due to a chemical reaction. Make sure your crown of your wood is facing in when you attach them.

pressure treated lumber would not be a good idea. It warps and moves too much and will never look good. To find local dealers for the composites use this site. http://www.azek.com/where-to-buy.html

Thanks Harby, but this azek stuff sounds like the move. Comes with a 25 year guarantee. Pretty great. Appreciate your input! Duffy
