I have a question on sofit, facia and gutter replacement. I have been
getting quotes from different folks on replacing all with aluminum. Does
this kind of job involve complete removal of existing wood sofit and facia
replacing it with aluminum? No wood backing anyplace or some behind the new
facia? Would any painting or surface preparation/painting be required to
any wood left?
Yes, I agree with Art.
This replacement job is done and sometimes creates new problems. I know
someone who had old soffits covered up...which promoted mold growth and
which was unseen for years.
Not sure how the group feels but I am facing similar work. I will take
advantage of the opportunity to significantly increase soffit venting in old
wooden soffits, and also I will opt for continuous vented soffits.
Also I will take advantage of removing the 'way overpacked insulation'
presently sitting jammed into my soffits. You may also want to explore this
possibility as it is very common mistake in attics.
Staying home for the project to see what's there now, and what they do is a
very good idea.
