Question

Best replacement Facia


I am in the Dallas area and on my home I am taking down the gutters and old facia and would like to know what is the best one to use beside Hardi. I want to be able to get 1'6 for Facia and 1x2 for the trim without having to rip it. What would you recommend and where in the Dallas FTW are can it be bought.

I would use cedar for both the fascia and trim. You might be able to get the trim primed.

What is the reason you would use the treated that would have to be painted over some other type, just curious.

Your FASCIA is 1'6"??? That's a mighty wide fascia. No offense, but you sure you've got your terminology right? Fascia is usually 1x6 or 1x8. You won't find any solid-sawn material that wide, and if you did, it would be mighty unstable. You could use LP SmartTrim, but you'd have to use two pieces. You'd also want to backprime it. I think it comes in 16' lengths, but don't quote me on it.

Gotcha! Stranger things have happened, so it was worth being sure!

I'd really suggest LP SmartTrim. It would be fairly cost effective, and it is a good product.

Yeah, I assumed you meant 1x6" for the fascia.

I don't understand this question, but I think you are asking why I would get pre-primed trim. I assume you will be painting this new fascia to match the rest of the building. Having it primed when you buy it wont hurt.
