What should I use for fascia board?
Subsequently, one may also ask, how thick should fascia boards be?
Replacement fascias do vary in thickness by manufacturer, but the rule of thumb is that to qualify structurally as a replacement board they should be somewhere between 16mm and 25mm thick - our most common range is the 18mm Replacement Fascia.
what timber do you use for fascia boards? The most popular wood species for fascia, soffits and barge boards are; Western red cedar, European oak, Douglas fir and Larch. Accoya fascia board is a highly recommended sustainable option that is extremely durable. Utile or Iroko fascia, barge and soffit boards are also very good options.
Additionally, does fascia board need to be treated?
Purchase pressure-treated lumber to replace your fascia boards as a way to extend the life of the repair. Pressure-treated lumber is designed for outside applications and resists rot, moisture and insect damage. Cut the new lumber to size and secure it to the rafter ends with galvanized finish nails.
What material is used for the soffit and fascia?
While soffits and fascia are traditionally constructed from materials like aluminum and wood, many homeowners are now choosing ones made from synthetic and composite materials like UPVC and vinyl because they offer easy maintenance and durability.
