Deck Fascia


Almost done putting the decking down, and I want to finish off the fascia with a clean look. Since the deck is only 15 in. high, the entire front of the deck will have two steps, no railings and the fascia will be very noticable. What type of material would be best? like a 1x8 of something treated.
Thanks

Also, can whatever I use be glued down? With finish nails also?

Pic of what I'm talking about. Projects give me a reason to buy new power tools also!

Both ends of the deck will have privacy fence. Just the front to have steps all the way across.

I usually use 1x cedar, and bring it up to the level of the walking surface. It makes a nice look, and makes decking around the posts easy.

You could do composite (Kleer,Azek, Koma)?

Example:


Alternative: Pre-Primed and painted premium 1x trim boards.

Nice new miter saw by the way. I have that same miter saw stand and really like it.

We have one of those Ridgid sliding compound saws too. That things a behemoth. It survived a 15' foot fall off a pumpjack setup. Needed a new handle.
(We use TracRac miter-saw stands)

I used cedar for many years until they came out with Koma And Azek trim board, the home owners would complain about the carpenter Bee's drilling holes in the boards. The composite boards look great and don't have to be painted. I personally like the decking over hanging the fascia, this way you don't see the dirt in the seams after a while.

Little late posting. Bad weather here, shut down my business for a day, not good.
Anyway, I did see some 1x 8's treated, but not sure if I can get long enough pieces. One needs to be a 16' to keep it one long piece. All HD had was 8'. Haven't researched yet.
On the overhang, not sure which to do, let the decking overhang the 1x or visa verca. Like I said, it will all be very noticable since steps will run the entire front.

Yea, the saw and stand are nice. When I start a project, I include the new tools in the estimate so my little woman never notices.

Got a friend in the woodworking biz, gonna plane down two 2x10x16's to about 3/4" for me for the fascia.
What type of glue to use on treated lumber for outdoors?
Should I notch the wood? Read that somewhere to keep it from cupping?
Thanks

Generally, there is no need to glue the trim boards. If you want to, you could use either construction adhesive (Liq. Nail) or Polyurethane glue (Gorilla Glue).

That shouldn't be necessary.

I actually brought my 1X up flush with the decking as opposed to running the decking out another 1 1/2 inches and butting the fascia up under it. I like it.
