What saw blade do you use to cut soffits?


I need a blade for my chop saw 10" and circular saw 7 1/4"

I heard your supposed to flip the blade around. I need to cut 16" soffits to size.

Are you talking vinyl soffits?

When I did my friend's house, his contractor buddy set us up with a chop saw with a backwards finish blade. Made a heck of a mess, but it worked OK.

These are aluminum soffits.

It still works for aluminum, by putting in the multi-tooth finish plywood blade in backwards.
