Fascia


A little more info and a picture would help.

Is there gutter attached to the fascia? Do you really mean fascia or the barge board running up the rake?

Fascia


The roof edge shouldn't be nailed to the fascia board, but to the plywood beyond. Most probably you can remove the fascia board without removing the drip edge (roof edge). Lift the shingles gently to check.

Fascia


more than just the metal drip edge is going to have nails into the fascia. if its the actual fascia board it will be though nailed into the rafter tails and have a nail or two down through the roof sheathing midway between rafters/trusses.. if its the fly rafter , meaning the fascia on a gable end it will be through nailed down through the the sheathing and possibly have blocking between it and the gable end wall which will keep it from sagging..

if its installed the way i mentioned it will be a combination of pulling out nails with a cats paw and cutting nails with a recip saw.. not a fun task but has to be done

Exactly, I’ve never replaced fascia or barge with no nails in it from the top.

It can usually be replaced without removing any roofing but it’s almost a surgical like procedure that maybe beyond "DIY 101" to pull off without damaging any roofing, assuming you have all of the right tools.
