Replace and/or re-cover barge board


I have been working like a madman on my new (used) house. Repairing lots of water damaged sheathing, framing, etc. I am nearing the top of the projecting gable end. I will be replacing those triangle shape plywood sheaths at the top, but will need to work with the barge boards. The boards have aluminum wrap which I'm assuming will need to be replaced after prying off the layer of cedar tong-n-groove that is integrated underneath it.

What is the best solution for doing this? Do I need to use this brake I'm hearing so much about?

Attached is a pic during the process. It doesn't show the present condition, but you at least get the picture (lol).

If you want to recap the fascia(barge) boards, you will need a break. You might also use it to cap any door or window trim, depending on what you are doing with these.

Replace and/or re-cover barge board


So today I was in lowes and bought some PVC barge board. It looks pretty nice. Have a few questions though:

1. Should I Tyvek between the PVC barge board and the plywood sheathing?
2. Should I use some type of drip cap that goes under the shingles and overlaps the barge board?
3. Finally, should I pre-drill and use screws to secure to the plywood sheathing? I'm thinking a nail gun might crack PVC?

I'm a little water crazy because all the work I'm doing is repair from water damage, so please let me know if I'm being over protective

I would tyvek under the barge board and install a drip cap over the boards. Are the boards actually PVC or a type of polyboard? I've shot framing nails through polyboard with no issue as long as I stayed at least 2 " from the end. Closer then that, I would predrill.
