Adding a facia

In reply to facia boards by Bruce M on August 20th, 1998 10:11 PM [Go to top of thread]

Exposed rafter tails i.e. open cornices are very
common, particularly in milder climates. The tails
do not end flush with the wall, but continue out
to form eaves. Obviously, the space between rafters
is blocked.
Maybe the previous siding installer took care of it,
but the problem with adding a facia is that the roof
deck often ends flush (or nearly so) with the end
of the rafter, so you either have to install a very
deep drip edge to cover the top of the facia board
or trim back the tails.
