Fascia Material


Is OSB sheathing suitable to use for fascia?

Not at all.

Are you considering doing it, or some, "CON-tractor?"

#2 pine or cedar are the most commonly used wood fascia materials used.

Rough sawn pre-primed pine and you are golden!

Only if you want to replace it when it falls apart

You are referring to the OP's suggestion of considering using OSB, not referring to the pine options, right!

Thanks for the info everyone. I was leaning towards the pine, but since I had plenty of sheathing on hand I was considering it. Not anymore.

I actually use 2x lumber for fascia
No problems securing my gutters, or anything else

Only if it is New Construction.

If this is an existing roof, the additional width will not align with the existing Gutter Apron sheet metal drip edge flashings and the extension of the current shingle overhang.
