Soffit question

1652 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  knucklehead
I'm building an L-shaped soffit and the bottom will span ~33" from the L to the bracing wall. Should I upgrade the bottom of the soffit to 2x4 instead of 1x4?

For a span of +/- 33 inches -
probably a good idea to use 2 X 4's.

I've seen them use plywood instead of 1 by or 2 by. makes it really solid.
