10" fascia

thanks for the reply!
sorry, not familiar with shadow board. I'm guessing it's a narrower piece applied on top of the flat face of the fascia.....
what about gutters if I guessed right?

If you are installing gutters that's going to cover the aluminum and it's not going to oil can anyways. If not, it is a small board added on the top of the fasica.

fascia

ok, thanks again!
Obviously, I would then clad both in aluminum and this would prevent the oil canning.

has anyone used gutter stock for wide fascia? once in a blue moon I see an old building someone has bent regular sheet aluminum over a wide fascia and it looks awful. stock Alcoa is 0.019-some of the gutter/downspout material is .027 and 0.033-would the the thinner stuff be workable w/ a brake?

24g steel off the standing seam roofing coils or you can buy it in sheets, REALLY nice, and no bubbles you gotta pre-drill your nail holes though.

The gutter aluminum will can just like regular coil.

A thought for you guys regarding something to use to prevent oil canning in wider widths.

In commercial work we use a product that is 2 thin aluminum sheets sandwiching a ABS core. To bend you use a router V-bit and rout down through the back sheet of aluminum and almost through the ABS core, then you just bend it along the router line. Stays nice and stiff and smooth, and you can get it in a variety of colors, natural, or anodized.

Just do a Google search for aluminum composite sheet or panel for your area.

I used to use a panal board call Panel 15 which was a core board cover with steel or alumiunm on both sides. You could get it in 1/4",3/8" 1/2",3/4" and 1". It would be a smooth or pebble finish in many colors. We used it for commercial store fronts taking out 1/4" plate glass or insulated glass and putting the Panel 15 in it's place. It's been a long time sense I used it.

Panel 15 is still available, it was made by Weyerhauser for years and in the 90's that division was split off from Weyerhauser and is now called Citadel Architectural Products.

We started using it 30 years ago or so for built in place walk in coolers and freezers. They also have some other interesting type of panels.
