I have an overhead aluminum screen enclosure two sides of it are attached to
the house's fascia board. The fascia boards are in pretty bad shape some
parts are so rotten I can make a dimple by pressing my finger into it. It
is a recently purchased house so it's been in neglect for years. The leaves
from the tree traps in the "valley" between the bottom of the tiled roof and
the bottom of the screen enclosure, and sat there, trapped moisture and
caused wood rot. I removed a small section of the eave and peeked inside
and I can see the fascia boards are attached to some 2x4 laid 24" aparts,
each 2x4 is attached to the roof framing at an angle (hard to explain) and
some of the 2x4 are also rotted a bit where it meets the rotted fascia
So the work I would need to do are:
(1) Detach and dissemble the screen enclosure at least on two sides where it
attaches to the structure.
(2) Remove all fascia boards and replace with new PT wood fascia boards.
(3) Examine the 2x4 where the fascia boards are attached to, and it any rots
occurs - I am not sure what to do, either replace or install a sister 2x4
next to it.
(4) Replace the sections of eave that are also rotted.
(5) Prime and paint all new wood.
(6) Reattach the screen enclosure again.
(7) Install a "lid" over the "valley" to stop rain and leave from collecting
I want to hire someone to do this. I just don't know if this is a roofer's
job, a screen enclosure guy's job or a carpenter's job. I called around and
no one wants to do it all, they all just want to do the screen part, or the
framing part etc...I have trouble finding a "general" contractor to do
repair oriented work.
