Fascia boards
 
Been trying to search for this answer but to no avail.

Getting ready to replace all my fascia boards (and soffit too) and I have a question. Do I need to angle the top of the fascia board to match the pitch of the roof? My old fascia boards have the angle, but when replacing is this necessary?

No, itís not necessary.

I run fascia so the outer edge of the fascia planes in with the top of the sheathing. Along with the drip edge this helps protect the sheathings edge.

Thanks. I was leaning that way but just wanted (read needed) to hear someone else agree with my thinking!

That is the way to go.

Pulled a roof off the other day where the home builder didn't want to spend the extra money to sheet the whole roof. There was about and 8" gap between the sheathing and the fascia board around the entire perimeter... :no:
