Best material for fascia


Assuming money is no object, what is the best material to replace decayed fascia, after source of water leak is eliminated?
Cedar, pressure treated lumber, Hardiplank, wood-fiber composite?
Your opinion is greatly appreciated.

Are you going to paint it or stain it? Also, I would include pvc as well. This stuff lasts forever and holds up very well.

I would without a doubt say pvc is the best material. Whether your fascia is exposed or capped with metal it will stand the test of time and you will be helping keep some plastic out of the landfill if you find a company that uses recycled material. The only downfall to pvc is it is a little more difficult to work with but pro's definitely out weigh con's. Good luck
