I have 1927 two-story dutch colonial. While replacing the gutters, the contractor said I need to replace much of the fascia boards and suggested I wrap all in aluminum. Cost $3800. My house is approximately 25 feet wide and 45 deep or 1850 sq ft. Does that sound reasonable?
I hired a carpenter to replace all the rotten wood on my house before having it painted. The painter told me the carpenter used pine to replace the fascia boards. He told me pine is not ideal to use on the exterior of a house...it is too soft. I told the carpenter I wanted him to use good wood and treated wood where possible. Later when I confronted the carpenter and relayed to him what I was told about pine, he told me there are different qualities of pine and the higher end pine was O.K. to use to replace the fascia. What say you?
