Stainless steel trim nails. Screws through the rake that everyone can see? Maybe on the wall of shame threadAnthill said:In this area, most of the fascia is aluminum. Some guys hand nail it with aluminum nails; some guys screw it with #8x 1 1/2 screws. The screws theoretically eat the aluminum; the nails fall out. What do you do?
try this Mr. Hammer Happy.But you are still handnailing? I would likely destroy all my fascia with missed hammer strokes, especially up from the bottom.
:biggrin: thanks. I can see that saving my trims. And Tom, nice trims, BUT, I live in a different world that doesn't seem to have clients that are willing to pay me a buck a minute to bend fancy fascia pieces and get all customy. (would be fun tho). almost all of the run of the mill houses here get standard pre built lumberyard aluminum fascia with standard lumberyard aluminum prebuilt vented soffit. It seems like things like rake trims, mimicking old styles, etc has never caught on here. I think it would drive the housing cost to insane and its just not worth it to the general public.try this Mr. Hammer Happy.
