I have lots of 1x4 IPE that I am using for deck and was hoping to use
1x4 for fascia to surround 2x8 treated rim joist. Any thoughts on using 1x4
for fascia?....... I thought of either rabbit edges of boards so that lip of
one board covers the board underneath or cutting tongue and groove edges on
boards to join them. Any recommendations on either method?...... I have read
in some deck books that recommend using spacers between rim joist and
fascia. Is this a good idea? ...... If so, what material makes a good
spacer? .... I have though of using (a) Hardi-board cement siding (b) 1x4
IPE with ^ cut on top (c) treated plywood
I am starting to screw deck from rim and wanted to frame in deck with top of
fascia board even with top of deck. Is 1 x 4 fascia too thin of material for
fascia to frame in deck?
Need to resolve questions above before I can start screwing the deck. Need
your input on above questions. Thanks, Rick(been luring off an on since
