I have seen some contractors just cover over rot and damaged areas. Why not, you will never notice, but, if its rot, then I would want that fixed first.
so, if this was mine, I would pay alittle more to have the rotted soffits replaced with plywood and painted, then do the siding thing.
Many contractors will tell you, just go over it.
I would not tell you that
