Normal for Fascia to look wavy?
 
Hi,

We're in the middle of building our house and have a question about the fascia. Is it normal for it to look wavy/wrinkled/goofy? I'm attaching some pictures that better explain what I'm talking about.

Now, I have a feeling that it's not going to be a big deal because the gutters will cover it up. I'm just looking for an opinion on 'yeah, that's fine', or 'you should complain'.

I suppose as a fix, you could put construction adhesive behind the fascia so it sticks to the board....but then if you ever want to take it off, I could imagine you swearing at it.

Thanks for any input!

in the first pic, it appears the fascia is wavy and it shouldn't be, at least that much.

In the others, it appears to be the drip edge. That's the piece of metal that is under the edge of your shingles and hangs down over the fascia. It prevents water from running back under your roof between the roof and the fascia.

when that is done right, its absolutely NOT supposed to look like that. Whoever did that metal bending/work didnt know what they were doing.

I know my name same wanna b carpenter but I am a Project Manager for a GC and that is NOT what it is supposed to look like.

Oh Tom, please tell me that wasn't a serious response. :whistling2:

That is what happens when you try to make metal do things it doesn't want to do. Your fascia and drip edge are extremely light gage and extremely poorly fabricated and installed.

could it be better...yes, does it matter under the gutter once all those hangers get screwed into it...no

if you can post a closer pic where the roof meets the side wall,looks like there is a kickout flashing there but hard to tell,much more important imo

What are the vents coming out the soffit?

Nope, it looks terrible. I wouldn't expect to get paid for work like that, but then again I probably charge more than that guy did.
Fascia is too short and binding on the roof edge.

what has happened here is that the framing under the metal was not straight. When the installer put up his metal, he forced it and it is causing the metal to bind. I would make the installer come back and fix it.

In my book that is absolutely unacceptable on a new home.

If it looks that way at the eves it probably does at the gables too.

A couple of ribs rolled in with the slitter and a hem at the top would help immensely.

Hey when I do soffits, i string them and get the level and straight. I have never had issues with my metal fascias being like that.

Ron i would bet that the gable fascia is ok because it has multiple bends

you can tell the sider to change it if you want but once the gutter get screwed or nailed thru it,even if it was perfect,all bets are off

from the pics it looks to me everything is tight that's what i believe is more important than the oil canning,drip edge is a different story but the op didn't ask about that and that may have been installed by the roofer


around here at the eaves the i&w is installed long and when i nail that down over the fascia with roofers pretty close together,i can't control that wavyness either

i'd enjoy seeing pics of how you guys manage to do it...seriously educate me:notworthy:

I know about uncontrollable oil canning but that doesnít mean I have to like it. In fact it drives me absolutely nuts:furious:, especially darker colors when the sun hits it just right.

They could have at lest hemmed the top, I rib anything over 6Ē, this looks like 8Ē+. I even have gutter stock bent up occasionally.

I was hoping you could educate me TS, your the VS Pro. Thankfully I only do a few a year, Iím eating Cedar dust 80% of the time.

Believe it or not DIY Chatroom, itís still ok to use wood.
