found treated fascia,alluminum soffits, now what
Okay so my memory of what I used 15 years ago isnt so good,,,now what do I do? My newbie siding job is becoming daunting!!!
I guess i bought treated wood for fascia 15 years ago when I did the roof. (still in excellent condition) NOW I just completed the north end gable with aluminum soffits nailed to the bottom of that treated fascia. Thank goodness I selected stainless steel nails.
I heard aluminum and treated touching each other wont last from noon to dinner. Even THIS close? Whats my next option?Tear it ALL off and start over? (one step forward,six steps back)
IF it might be okay,I doubt it,whats my next step,use plastic fascia cover for the back of the house??
I sure LIKE the Certainteed solid plastic fascia BUT,,,at over 25 bucks for every 10' is almost budget busting considering I would need at LEAST 14 of them.
I already bought the aluminum fascia cover for all of it because it was 'on sale' locally here. Next best option,trash what treated fascia is left and replace with cedar boards and cover with alum. fascia?? Would it HELP keep the cedar from decay IF I covered it in paint first??
Thanks for ANY suggestions!!-d-
