Facia boards are built and primered with Zinzer deep tint base. Wil be top coated next.
I did the wood with a profile and can always put the aluminum on by slipping it in at some point down the road, if I do I will run an ogee on it so it is at least not that typical look I see and don’t like.
On the homes you see with solid wood facias do they mitre the boards on the four corners of the home or do they butt joint them?
This one was butt jointed and in some ways that makes more sense to me. I was thinking about shrinkage and the mitre would open up more. WIth the front board over the side board it may be better in the long run.
The boards are 16’ long, where they butt each other do you usually see them butt or do they do a scarf joint? Which is an angle cut where one is over the other?
