Roof sheathing overhang on fascia
63 Attachment(s)
Portico project:
I've trimmed my roof sheathing to run between 5/8 and 3/4" over the sub-fascia. This is to just enough to cover the 3/4"x6 (actual) fascia.

Now that I've modeled what I was going to build, I decided I need a piece of molding to break up the plain look of just the fascia trim plank. This would add another 3/4" to the thickness. My fascia with the molding would extend 3/4" beyond the roof sheathing. Since the drip edge would cover everything up anyway, is this going to be a problem or should I rethink my molding idea and stick to keeping it all under the lip of the roof sheathing?

Hindsight continues to be 20/20.

I just reread my post and it's a little confusing,
The question is... does the roof sheathing need to completely cover the edge of the fascia and molding?

I've seen it done both ways, but I like it to overhang the fascia. If you're putting a drip edge and ice and water shield on that should take care of any possibility from water getting inbetween the ply and the fascia detail.

just run the top of the molding flush to the top of the sheathing ,then install backflashing(for gutter),or drip edge--you shouldn`t leave the sheathing overhanging as it will just "wick" water from the gutter--w/1x6 +molding-I would think you`re not putting a gutter,because if you were you would only need 1x6 and any extra molding would never be seen,if you`re putting the gutter under the molding the gutter would be too low,and the molding would then "wick" the water(means it`ll rot from soaking up the water!)

Thank you.
This is the gable end.
Speaking of gutters, does anyone know of a smaller profile gutter for a small roof. The roof size is only 50" ridge x 65".

so definitely run the 1x2 flush w/the top edge of sheathing,I would think you`d want the same size gutter as the rest of the house,or it wouldn`t be proportionate,and would look weird on a 1x6 fascia(5" is the smallest professional gutter,although ENGLERTS leafguard is a bit smaller

Thanks, that's a good point about the gutter. Is there a different type of drip edge that I should be using for gutters or does the gutter just get tucked in behind the drip edge?

I make my own 3x3 custom bent to the roof pitch,so the gutter can be mounted to it-be sure to use gutter brackets w/galvanised screws to attach the gutter to the 3x3---w/this no ice can get under the flashing-if you are using ice+water shield install it to the top half of the 3x3 extended past 1/4",then use a hand roller to roll it down for good adhesion:thumbsup:
