Facia Repair
 
I am just about to install the gutter shield and found out the facia had came out.

I think some part of the beam were rotten. How can I rectify this problem?

How to install new facia?

You nail the fascia to the tail ends of the rafters, but if that was what you were referring to when you said the beams were rotted out, then you have to sister in new rafter sections to give yourself an adequate nailing surface.

Here's a little sketch of what Ed's talking about. Usually when the fascia is loose or rotten, the rafter tails and soffit framing that it attaches to are damaged. It is not hard to fix, it just takes time. You can attach 2x material to the side of the existing damaged material with nails or screws, and it will give you something to secure your new fascia to. You can do it without re-roofing in nearly all cases.

Fascia is usually made of Cedar or LP Smart Trim these days. Either will perform well. Just be sure to back prime it before you install it.

I agree. Did you do that or is it from some source to acquire such diagrams from?

Thanks fellas. Uhh, honestly....
My wife was working a night shift, I was bored out of my mind and feeling helpful. I drew it on Microsoft "Paint, which is better suited to drawing things like this than architectural drawings...

Do I have to prime the rotten part as well?

Can I use pine wood?

Wouldn't you be replacing the"Rotten Part"?

So, why would you prime it?

Yes, #2 Pine is an acceptable fascia wood material.

I wonder if that was a self portrait?
