Soffit


Why are you trying to do all that work without instaling vented soffit? With out vents in the soffit any vents on the roof are about useless.

A picture, and far more info sure would be a big help.

Your really going to also wrap the fashias with coil stock to do this right. It holds up the soffits and covers the exposted wood so there's no more painting.

+1 on a picture.

Yes you can put up new soffit over the wood but make sure it is clear and vented if the previous roof was vented.
