No one likes climbing on ladders and scraping and sanding old paint on a continual basis.
Covering the old fascia and soffits directly with new vinyl or aluminum is not a problem as long as several things are taken into consideration.
Is it necessary to remove the old soffits and do I have to do anything extra to vent the new soffits?
I don’t mind doing the extra work to take the old soffits down, but I may not bother if it isn’t beneficial.
I have been updating my windows and doing other renovations to improve the look and efficiency of my house.
