Fascia

9 posts in this topic

why wouldn't I ask this question here.  You old geezers have a wealth of knowledge.

Our facia at the cabin needs fixing.  The stuff put up was some type of manufactured type press board and it's delaminating and I know how to tear it off and replace it but was exploring other options.  It's a 1x6 and has about a 1x2 on the top side that matches up with the drip edge from the roof.  I think tearing it off is going to be a mess of goop rather than just a 12' section coming off and was pondering wrapping it in metal or some other idea.  We may sell the place since we have my dad's place right down the road so this potentially is just a cosmetic fix to market the place better rather than me planning on owning it forever.  If it's someone elses problem I don't know frankly I don't care.

If I tear everything off I also assume I'm going to run into other issues that just seem to happen when you do something like this.  Any other suggestions on a quick fix?  Thanks.

cut a 1 x 6 to fit under the 1 x 2 or see if a 1 x 4 would fit and nail it up is one option.

Do what eyeguy said replace any other questionable areas and cover up with a metal fascia wrap. never have to worry  again, a buyer might see that as a plus too.

It will only cost 10k and be done in July....

I hear ya Del.  Let's say we've got about 200' of facia to replace.  12 union guys, 3 boom trucks and the union painter and we're golden.

    • By only hot bathing them for 10 minutes max it seems to work! I've heard of the above methods but never did them.
    •   I took the blades back off then buffed them clean with a dremel, oiled them, and touched them up with a lazer hand sharpener.  Not sure if a guy can exchange since they aren't flat.   Added some pics so you can see the curve in them. I think they must be a "jet" blade.  
    • Can't wait to see.....  
    • Grape leaves are said to also help.  
    • We would add 1/8 of a teaspoon of Alum to make the pickles stay crisper.
    • We actually put a hitch onto ice castle and pulled 2  wheelers. It worked pretty well. 
    •   If nothing else bring the old ones in closer to ice time so they don't rust up again and have one of the bait store guys send them in to their blade sharpener exchange guys.
    •   How do you keep them crispy? I bought a jar of homemade Hot ones at a farmers market which were good and hot, but limpy?
    • Rain soaked major portions of the state for yet another week, with much concentrated in the southwestern region. This has kept area lakes and rivers high and flowing water moving fast. Several properties in the southwest are still dealing with storm damage. Badger State Trail has some closed sections and areas with standing water. The Sugar River State Trail is usable but needs resurfacing at various locations. Mountain bike trails remain closed at Blue Mound and horse trails and the horse camp at Wildcat Mountain remain closed. All roads have reopened at Wyalusing and Nelson Dewey state parks, but some trails in both parks remain closed.Fishing pressure waxed and waned with the weather this past week. Northern pike, bass and musky continue to be caught on the Flambeau River. Anglers on inland lakes have been reporting success for panfish, bass and walleyes.Anglers were out in force though the weekend on Green Bay many brought out by a walleye tournament. Walleye fishing was relatively consistent, with most boats catching at least a couple fish. The bass bite has slowed along Door County with the best success coming from piers, but perch anglers were having some luck over the past week with most boats harvesting more than 10 fish for half a day's trip. Trout and salmon fishing was beginning to pick up off Marinette on the west shore of the bay but trout and salmon off the Door County side were struggling to find fish. .
    •   That is what I'm wondering.......I found some 8in "jiffy" blades on the bay of e. However it doesn't say anything about them being jet blades and couldn't tell on the pictures if it looked like a slight curve in them..........they were in the package so a decent side view was about impossible. Somebody has to have had one...
