That fascia that's existing is about 20 years old. It was just painted regular old spruce.

Re: The Fascia Thread


Got any blocking under the scaffold legs on the lawn?
Without blocking might wreck the lawn.

Boral is fly ash.

I'm using it in Highlands Ranch. Your welcome to stop by and take a look at how it works.

I use a TS and dust extractor. Mikes KS should handle Boral well.

That can't be done very well off of ladders. The window situation and the depth of the eaves make it a bitch.

A quikgrip clamp that can grab shingle and soffit is very helpful for solo fascia work. But you probably already knew that.

No but I've been pondering a strategy. The clamp idea is probably what I'll use. Clamp it in the center.

If I had to do it by myself I'd probably try a standoff on a ladder and adjustable legs with the clamp idea, lot of ladder moves though.

Re: The Fascia Thread


I don't know if that board is 45º or square butt? The way I would do it is. Hook the barge board with a tape measure and get a number to the center of the middle tail and make a mark,, or get a mark some where. Measure from the same end of the board alone the bottom or some where it will line up with the mark you already have. Shove the board in place line up your marks and hit it with the framing gun. If the corner is 45ºit's easy to get a number if it's butted you'll have to adjust for the butt.

I wrapped all of the framing on a screened in porch with it last year. I used the TS as well as every other tool. Routers...etc... after a while it was on everything. I used the air hose to keep blasting the saw clean.

If it weren't my house I'd probably charge about 2500 to 3k for that.
