Hardie Board/ Masonite or What Material for Soffit/Fascia Trim in Texas?


Hey All -

As mentioned in the title, I'm trying to figure out what material was used to construct the soffit and fascia board in my home. This home was built in 1999 in Texas.

The fascia trim was damaged during a fence installation. The fascial material almost seems like there's thin brown cardboard layers in the material. Calling around I was told it was either Hardie Board, Masonite or OSB. I really doubt it's OSB but am not familiar with the other two or perhaps those recommendations are also incorrect.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Your old stuff sounds like masonite, a cheap material that unless the paint is maintained will turn to mush when it gets wet.

Thanks - any recommendations on what to replace it with? Something that's textured and pre-primed would be ideal. I assume whatever it is, I'll have to rip it to the right width?

Here's a pic of the damaged board:

You can get cement fibre board (hardie is one maker), with wood grain embossing. And no worries about it rotting.
