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.

    • Honestly I'd rather just face the Hawks whenever we get our shot, we are either good enough or we are not. This the first year we have been better than them for the entire season, I say bring em on. I don't want to trade anyone away right now, havingn a guy like Scandella on the bottom pair makes us that much better. Throw some picks at a rental and keep our depth, no reason to make any drastic moves. We should be warry of San Jose too, they have a very solid team and made the trip last year but everyone else should be beatable if we play like we can and don't run into a hot goalie.
    • Pope suggests it's better to be an atheist than a bad Christian. CNN   Count me among those saying, "I don't share your beliefs, but you're one awesome pope. Keep on rocking."    

    • What is more likely, that your half of the media, gov & courts are honest and trustworthy and the other half is trying to destroy the world. Or that both sides are playing the public to enrich & empower themselves via a broken and corrupt system. Picking a side in this mess is playing the game by their rules. Your basic salami tactics to control the masses.
    •     Both from the same news outlet.
    •   Then why are you asking me this question?     Isn't that the way it's done now that we are in the Trump era?
    • Sounds like there is still some good snow up the Gunflint. I sent an email to Bearskin lodge about their web cam not working and got a reply.   "That's correct. The repaired webcam has broken again, unfortunately, so only the same picture gets sent.  It is fairly inaccessible because of deep snow, but someone will be going out soon to take it down so we can get it fixed again.  It will probably have to be put up in a new place, which will disappoint people who have been keeping running snaps of the photos to make video.   For what it's worth, it looks exactly the same now as it did when that picture was taken.  Winter tends to look the same everyday here."   Sue Bearskin Lodge   -----Original Message----- From: Steve A Sent: Thursday, February 23, 2017 11:10 AM To: stay@bearskin.com Subject: From the Bearskin Contact Form   From: Steve A Zip: 55429   Message Body: Whats up with your web cam? It's had the same picture for a month. There are a lot of us snowmobilers who watch your cam to know if there is any snow left up there and if we should come up sledding or not. Can you check to see if it's working?  Thanks.  
    • Any combo of Dunn/Jones is not something you can build a contender around. Either could eventually become a decent backup; neither looks to be leadership/starter material. I would have no problem with trading Rubio for another PG, as long as it is the right dude. 

      Much like Rubio, Rose just isn't worth the salary he will command. 
    • Anyone who took Brett Hite is a happy camper! Wayyyy too early yet to get too excited or too worried. Bobby Lane stuck an 8+, and his total weight is 17 and change, so he could vault up is he makes a couple of good culls.
