I'm going to cap barge and soffit boards with PVC and I've been given
three different pieces of advice re preparing the wood:
1. No preparation needed (the wood is sound);
3. Use wood preservative, which would require the remaining paint to be
My instinct is for preservative. What do people think?
I read the thread on fascias and soffits but there was no discussion of
preparation of the wood. Painting without capping is not an option
because access is a big problem due to abutting neighbouring property.
This makes the scaffolding complicated and expensive.
