Question Where to buy ready made fascia boards?

I am located in Northern California east bay area. Can any one tell me where I can buy those ready made, weather proofing, termit resistant fascia boards (1"x6"?)? I couldn't find anything like that in local stores such as Home Depot. Does any one use those Trex boards or Vinyl boards as fascia boards? Thanks.

My HD has them

Not sure why you couldn't find these at your HD. Mine has a whole display.

Go to the Pro Desk and ask them how to order what you want.

Question Fascia board SKU # at HD?

The HD people in the lumber department of the two local HD stores I visited either didn't find them or showed me those untreated DF #2 1"x6" boards which are obviously not weather proofing nor termite resisting. I didn't mean to use those vinyl or trex boards if they are not the common materials used for fascia because they are expensive and may not be easily painted to the color I want later, even they are avialable in our local HD. I don't know what fascia boards you just bought. Do they have the corner for supporting/hooking up the sofits? Are they treated/painted/redwood boards? Do you have HD's sku # (I guess they are the same in any HD store no matter which state you are in)? Thanks.

Here on the right coast, we use Miratex. 25 year warranty, and comes primed. Not sure it is available at HD, but local lumber yards carry it.

Go to the Pro Desk!!!

Stop dealing with the knucklheads in the lumber section at HD. Most of these guys are glorified stockboys and from what you are saying that they show you DF boards instead of rot/termite resistant man made material just shows you that they don't know what they are doing.

Check out www.azek.com to see if this is what you want, then if it is, go to the Pro Desk and place your order.

The brand should be TrimPlank. It's a composite board. They usually have it beside the primed 1 by material.

Trimplank

Are these Trimplanks finished white PVC boards? I probably will go with them if I later decide to use white color to replace all my gutters and trims then. I called a lumber yard and they have treated primed radiata pine facia boards seems a fit. Have to see if I can take a look at them in one of the Saturday mornings. All those "Pro Desk" or lumber yards seem have business hours for pros, not for DYIers who can't go there during weekday hours. Thanks for your postings.

The white PVC boards are under the brand name Never Rot. It's usually located in the trim aisle in the doors and windows section

Azek boards

As "sgtgerryf" replied, i always use azek boards (azek.com). They can be milled, cut, sanded, or anything that you can do to wood. It comes in many sizes and is white. It is easily painted if you desire. The company also makes a corner piece....good luck!

Ready made fascia boards

I am new to this forum and was looking for some new material to use for replacement fascia. I built my house 11 years ago and wanted to use redwood on the fascia, but it was too expensive so I used Georgia-Pacific siding and ripped it to fit with the expectation that it would last 10 years, which it did. I don't know about pre-made or ready made since most fascia must be cut to fit. You will need stock wide enough to cover the fascia after you have cut the appropriate angle to fit against your roof. You can use any material, but different material will last different lengths of time depending on your weather. Here in Oklahoma, nothing last forever. Even a good material will only last as long as the end of the roofing member behind it or the next tornado gets to close. Depending on your region you may also have to replace a shingle molding and/or a drip molding, which is usually metal. All of these pieces are of different widths and cut at the same angle as the roof. If you use wood or a composite I highly recommend that you prime and paint it before you install it.

Any body ever use a cement board for this purpose? If you have, what kind of life did you get out of it?
