I need to replace the 1×6 fascia which happens to have a 1x ontop to kick the drip edge out but I noticed that the subnailer at the end is rotted. I dont want to remove the soffit, drip edge, etc, so I was wondering if I could use wood epoxy and build up the corner after using that green water proofing paint. The other piece(missing in pic) will be new with a nice 45 corner. Problem is people toenail the corners and it causes many issues.
Are there any tricks to cut and replace fascia boards in place. I was thinking a long saber saw blade. sawzall blades are too wide.

I usually use a combo of a sawzall and multi-tool with various wood blades.

a multi tool is an oscillating tool that uses various blades to make very thin cuts in various materials.many companies make them.

i think what you want to do is only a band aid for cancer,it probably will only prolong what really needs to be done.

I have this one, but most tool companies have their own, some cordless . Those blades you can attach at any angle and plunge in.

That cut on the multi tool is going the wrong way. I can cut the attaching nails with a sawzall, its crosscutting the fascia board in-place thats tricky. I may try a 7” sabre saw blade. Replacing the 2x subnailer would be hell because its attached to the ends of the trusses. Only 2” at the end is bad. If I can get the fascia to seal it should be fine.

You will have to cut back further than you are thinking. 3 – 5 foot to have a good point to secure to. But you will also have to deal with what is behind that, find the source of the water damage, or your efforts will be a waste if your time. And hopefully the roof deck is not affected.

7” blade in the sabre saw working perfect.

Have your say...
