ptw Rim joist = composite fascia board

Hi everyone,
I'm planning my deck and trying to figure out if I can use a fascia board of the same material as the deck (trex accent saddle) as the rim joist. I understand that the rim joist helps tie all the 2x10 joist together so I'm wondering if I need to use wood instead of the composite. I quess the wood is thicker then the composite. Maybe I should use wood as the rim joist then cover the ptw with the composite? I wondering what the industry standard might be. Any help would be appreciate.

Use the PT for the rim then wrap that in 1x Trex if you want. You can not use Trex in the framing.

Since your still in the planning stages for your Trex Deck you might want to take a look at this.

Yep, PT 2x10's all the way around and then trim of your choice on top of that. I am in the final stages of my deck and the 2x10's will be clad w/ 1x12's of cedar like the decking.
