Hi Again Joe.

I think his fascia is already cladded, as the return leg appears to be carrying the outer edge his current vinyl soffit, and the outer edge does not look like the sharp corner or checking you would generally see with pine.

Sorry Homesealed, I missed the fact that he was just running his fan into the overhang. Really not very smart.

Blame the previous homeowner! It was like this when I got here.

Did you have a home inspection?... I'm surprised that they would not have caught that.
