Fascia Replace


I need to replace ONE fascia board on my garage. Gutters are falling off due to rotten wood.
I like things to look nice, however, this is still just a garage, and nothing high-end or "cool" is needed. I just need to run one length of 2.5 car garage. White would be nice, but I suppose bare wood that must be painted is ok.

How should I proceed?

Re: Fascia Replace


#1 Figure out why it rotted in the first place,
Clogged gutters?
No drip edging on the roof?
Not enough shingle over hang?
Someone let it go to long with no paint?
Any I do are just pine and I wrap them with coil stock so there's never any painting needed.
If you cheap out and go with just wood then prime and prepaint all side, most often the first place it fails is on the cut ends.

Re: Fascia Replace


Fascia just gets attached to the tail ends of the rafters, right?
Nails or screws? What kind?
Fasten to EACH rafter end?
Gutter fasteners also get screwed through fascia and into rafter ends, or anywhere on fascia?

Re: Fascia Replace


I use Stainless steel siding nails but ring shanked 8D will work fine.
I use the Stainless so rust spots are never an issue.
You have to nail into the rafter tails the rest is just open air.
Idealy you want the gutter as high as possible and behind the drip edge.
Anyplace in the facia will be fine.
Just make sure you use enough of them.
Hidden gutter hangers look and work best.

Re: Fascia Replace


Since,
1) they probably dont sell 25' fascias, and
2) i'll need to have it cut to fit in my Nissan Versa

...do two fascia ends get nailed into one rafter tail where there is a seam???

As you can see, I am a go-getter, dying to learn, but quite the newbie.
