Replacing Soffits & Fascia
Gutter work From the ground, it may appear that the soffit and fascia boards just need a new coat of paint. But once you get up close and probe the wood, it may become obvious that they're beyond repair and need to be replaced.
When working from, or in this case, near the roof for any length of time, it's a good idea to set up scaffolding. Scaffolding is safer and easier than working off ladders and will save a lot of time. We used a pair of fiberglass extension ladders with a couple of jacks to support an aluminum walkway.
Remove the gutter by prying out the metal spikes or straps fastened to the roof. If the gutter is in good shape, it can be put back up, so try to avoid bending it.
Pry off the fascia board along the eave and clean out any debris behind it. Give the boards a good poke with an awl or screwdriver. Replace any rotting, spongy, brittle or crumbling boards.
Instead of nails, we used screws to hold the new framing to avoid jarring the existing framing by hammering.
Tack the new fascia boards into the rafter tails and line up the corner piece before nailing them down. Primer and attach any crown molding to cover the gap between the fascia and sheathing.
We matched the old soffit with tongue-and-groove beaded board. But other soffit types include plywood, vinyl, or aluminum. Nail up the soffit -- cut so the ends land on the lookouts. Paint the replaced sections to match the other trim on the house. After it's dry the gutters can go back on.
