Roof sheathing


Hi guys,

I am building a small little house for my son and have some questions. When I go to sheet the roof should the edges from one side of the gable roof meet the other side of the gable roof at the peek? Its just a small play house so no ridge vent. Also, I have no end gable overhang so no soffit. How would I go about install fascia without an overhang?

That would be sheathe, Mark, like in Sheathing. Yes they should meet at the ridge.

Mark ,

As far as your gable facia is concerned , you can attach it directly to your gable . If you are putting siding on the gable , install the siding first , then the facia on top . You can put a spacer between the facia and the gable to give it more depth .

the fascia boards i see have that 3/4" lip though so how would that work with no overhang sub fascia board?

Mark ,

not sure that I'm following you about the 3/4 " lip .

The facia that I use is most often a 1x or a 2x with 4 square edges .

The plywood does not need to touch. You can slide a 2x6 up flush to the top of the roof sheathing and face nail it into the gable end. Your drip edge will cover this.

Are you talking about the plywood meeting the sub fascia board?

Mark ,

What I think you are talking about is an alluminum skin that covers the wood . If so , install the wood to the gable . Then cover the wood with the skin .
