This project is continued from Part 5. Drip edge flashing is installed on the roof eaves and rakes to protect the fascia board, and to cover the “carpenter’s gap” between the roof deck and fascia to keep squirrels out of the attic.

This project is continued from Part 2. The Speedi-Boot™ air vent is fastened by nailing the feet of the telescoping arms to the wood joists with the pre-installed nails (you can also use screws). This is where the Speedi-Boot really shines compared to a raw vent boot where I’d have to measure, saw and mount [...]
This project is continued from Part 1. The new 4″x8″air vent will compliment an existing 6″x10″ air vent in my upstairs office. The computers and networking equipment generate a lot of heat and extra cooling is needed in the summer. On the other hand, the heat is welcome in the winter and I’ll close the [...]

This project is continued from Part 3. With the new soffit and fascia installed, it’s time to rehang the gutter. The gutter was originally fastened with gutter spikes nailed into the rafter tails. Gutter spikes are similar to big nails. The problem with gutter spikes is they tend to work themselves out and become loose. [...]
This project is continued from Part 2. The scaffold is positioned at the corner of the roof so I can easily reach the corner of the roof to pull off the fascia board. I arranged the aluminum scaffold planks as shown so I could reach the corner of the roof from the upper plank or [...]
This repair is continued from Part 1. The fascia board and soffit is rotted due to rain water damage where it meets the main roof and must be replaced. I installed roof brackets and a 2″x6″ board on the 12/12 pitch roof and laid a 16 foot extension ladder on the roof as shown here: [...]
This repair explain how to replace rotted plywood soffit and fascia board while working on a steep roof. The fascia board rotted because it rested on the roof shingles and soaked up rain water. The wood fascia board was replaced with rot-proof PVC composite board and installing roof flashing to channel the rain water away [...]
