I have a customer who wants to replace his water damaged fascia with Azek / pvc trimboard. He also wants to redo his plywood soffits with vinyl.
My question is what's the neatest looking way to accomplish this as there will be no aluminum lip to support the fascia side of the soffit panel.
Haven't seen this done (yet) but am curious if it is doable ...

TIA

If there's a sub-facia, you could bend a metal 'L' and install it before the azek. Or, block the rafter tails for nailing soffit, then metal, then azek.

Just a thought....

Hem a metal L as stated in a previous post. I made my own soffit J in this case too.:thumbsup:

That looks nice and neat.
Amazing how that beaded soffet fits right around that rafter tail,having the beads line up.:thumbup:

Didn't have to go far for that pic!
Thanks, I got real lucky with the soffit, looks like I meant to do that.:whistling

on current job with narrow soffits we are using 5/4 azek all around. We dado the fascia to recieve the azek soffit. If your soffit is nailed to sub-fascia, would it be possible to simply rout a narrow dado in the fascia to receive the edge of the vinyl? Product routs very easily. A slight overhang of the fascia below the soffit face also looks good.

Looks nice LoneFramer:thumbsup:

It's probably in that other thread, but what product is the soffit? - Thanks!

Thanks man, the soffit material is Certainteed Invisivent. Im not crazy about the bumps where the panels slip together, but there is not much you can do with it and still be profitable. You can't push them too tightly together or they will really buckle. You just have to let them have a little freedom.:thumbsup:
