Soffits keep moisture outside, help vent the attic, and prevent animals from nesting overhead. Correctly installed with drip edges, these prevent moisture from getting to the substructure of your roof and help support your gutters. Incorrect installation leads to more extensive roof damage, pest infestations and, ultimately, costly repairs. They come in a variety of materials from wood to aluminum, wood being the most common. For an accurate estimate, find a roofing professional for a quote – which is generally free.These prices usually include the removal and replacement of gutters and old boards and trim.
Always fix underlying water issues before repairing or replacing anything. Sometimes soffits are attached directly to the back edge of fascia boards, requiring more time. Drip edges are added to the roof to direct water into the gutters.
You can use the same materials for both facias and soffits, although it is not usually necessary. A homes layout, accessibility, and size will all contribute to the total project cost.

A competent homeowner can do the job if they are comfortable working on a ladder. Unless you plan to change material or style, you rarely need to do a complete removal and reinstall. Though weather and water are the most common culprits, birds, squirrels, raccoons and other nesting pests also cause damage. Most licensed contractors can typically repair or install all three. Eaves refer to the entire section overhanging, including the soffit and fascia. Wood, the most common type, eventually rots and can no longer help hold the gutter in place. If you’re using wood, you’ll also need to paint it regularly to keep it looking and functioning correctly. Keeping water out means guarding against rot and mold growth. Check out our cost guide to calculate the price to install a roof. Clogged gutters can lead to water getting behind the fascia and weighing down gutter supports. Soffits also help keep your attic adequately vented, keeping humidity low to inhibit mold growth.
Both exterior layout and number of levels also affect final project cost. Fascia are the trim that covers the boards that run horizontally across rafter tails, creating the edge of overhanging eaves. It is easy to install, cost-effective, and aesthetically pleasing. Composite and aluminum materials last longer with less maintenance but are usually much more expensive and harder to install. In addition to the cost of materials listed above are labor and equipment rates. Complex configurations, the height of the eaves, accessibility, and even number of corners and angles will increase costs. Since each situation can be vastly different, the best thing you can do is get a free estimate from local roofing and siding contractors. You’ll only need to repair the damaged area rather than replacing large sections such as with vinyl or aluminum. Location and accessibility are major cost considerations, adding between 7-15%. More commonly, you’ll only have to make repairs where damage has occurred. Though you can purchase vents for old ones, many newer soffits are produced with integrated venting. For an accurate estimate, contact a professional for a quote – quotes are generally free. However, it’s usually best to have a professional inspect for damage or underlying issues.
Keep in mind that some companies will have minimums for equipment and labor. Since vinyl expands and shrinks more than any other type of material, it is susceptible to damage in areas with lots of temperature fluctuation. Fascia typically needs replacement due to water or weather damage. Proper installation, painting, and waterproofing are crucial to keeping maintenance and repair costs to a minimum. Sections often become damaged due to both climate and animals. Gutters need to be correctly installed and maintained to keep water from damaging the fascia or wooden substructure of your roof and walls. Painting your this part of your home’s exterior is not just for looks. Gutters, fascia, and drip edges work together to deflect water from your roof to the ground without damaging the roof or walls of your home. They are there to help, but you’ll need regular maintenance as well as a properly installed roof and drip edges.
Wood Edge Detail For A Laminate Countertop by woodweb.comThe edge is a piece of maple, and the cut that details the laminate and board edge is done with a 1/8 roundover bit.

The red rectangle of wood in your drawing is not necessary in my opinion. If the edge is just 1″ thick, the quality perception drops considerably. I think the bevel cut mentioned above is a better way to handle the p-lam to wood transition. Leaving the edge of the laminate exposed is not only undesirable in looks but is vulnerable to chips and nicks. I do this with pocket screws and glue from underneath the deck. I usually use 6/4 stock for my face edge and plane it down to 1″ thick. Carry the wood back approximately 3-4 inches so the feel with the hands is a good one. On a restaurant dining table the “red piece” (buildup) is typically used.

I think the exposed edge of the laminate is a mistake and not only prone to chipping but in a kitchen environment repeated exposure to liquids will eventually ruin the glue joint and if the top is made of particleboard it is even more of a problem. Something that looks interesting that we have done also is to add a groove between the laminate and the hardwood edge that is about 1/8 inch wide by about a 1/16 deep. This adds a nice touch and defines the fact that there is a hardwood edge a little more. I cannot remember the name but it is basically made with more glue and specifically moisture resistant ones. I always put the wood on, then the laminate, then trim the lam and then rout the edge. I have made hundreds of bench tops this way with no problems. Apparently, they did studies that showed people feel behind the wood edge underneath the table to satisfy themselves it is a quality product.
We had to sand, finish, and round over the back edge so it had a “friendly” feel. That stepped detail will gather all kinds of crud, and tend to wear and chip easily. I flush my wood edge even with laminate after it is glued to the deck. It’s only going to overhang the cabinet edge 1″ and if you use 3/4″ stock for your front, that 1/4″ of particle board is no big deal.I would build the top and install chosen laminate, rout flush and add the edgebanding. Finish the hardwood and glaze with appropriate color and clear over thoroughly to seal it.
Types Of Fascia Wood by homeguides.sfgate.comIn essence, fascia provides a drip-edge so that when water or anything spilled on the countertop runs over the edge, it drips off the counter without touching the cabinet doors or drawers. Usually, after the fascia is nailed in place, a plastic laminate or tile is applied to the countertop. When using plastic laminate, some woodworkers route a 30-degree bevel on the front of the oak fascia, cutting through the laminate and the fascia wood together to give the countertop a finished look.

When selecting an exposed hardwood fascia, always choose the same species of hardwood used on the existing trim in the home. Like a hardwood fascia, pine is nailed directly to the front edge of the countertop. Dimensions for pine fascia are the same as hardwood fascia, 3/4 by 1 1/2 inches. Well known as trim materials, these two woods add an opulent ambiance when used as a countertop fascia. Darker fascia such as these are often routed with a 30-degree chamfer on the front. Its face can be left exposed to highlight the wood’s grain patterns or it may be covered with a plastic laminate or tile. Almost any type of wood can be used as fascia, but there are several that are commonly applied. Its function is to protect the front edge of the counter while also providing an extension for the countertop. The front edge of the fascia may be exposed hardwood, or it may be covered by laminate. This covers the top edge of the fascia, but leaves the face of it exposed. After the fascia is installed, it’s sanded and then stained with the same stain that is on the cabinets. After the laminate is placed on the countertop, another strip of laminate is cut and glued to the front of the fascia to provide a waterproof edge for the cabinets. Usually, a matching teak or black walnut backsplash is applied behind the countertop, and the cabinets include knobs and handles made from the same hardwood.When a glossy coat of lacquer is applied to this type of fascia, it imparts the look of a high-end cabinet.

Make Your Own Countertop! by notjustahousewife.netHe is an older gentleman and he was a bit skeptical about a girl using power tools. I used liquid nails all along the top of the vanity and then just laid the counter top on. I have never used it before because it is notorious for being streaky and it was for the first 3 0r 4 coats. Shortly after installing this counter top one of my boys flooed the sink and we didn’t discover it until the morning.
You did a fantastic job on that countertop and sink!
I am not brave enough redoing it by myself, but yours came out really nice!
Great deals, interesting stuff, and it helps a very good cause. I post tons of budget friendly projects and by subscribing, you’ll never miss a single one!
I couldn’t replace it myself because the fittings were all rusted and too tight. But the metal around the edge and around the sink was hard to keep clean and made it a little dated.I mixed a tiny bit of black craft paint into one and a little brown craft paint into the other. Don’t use a regular brush or you will have lines from the bristles.
You need to lightly sand in between each coat with a fine grit (150 or 220) sandpaper so each layer with stick to each other.
Our project should take about 6-9 months to complete.
We have the same sort of old counter/sink with the metal around the edges in our bathroom.

Difference In Cost Between Vinyl and Aluminum Soffit and Fascia by pocketsense.comFascia refers to the trim that edges the house horizontally, serving as ornamental decoration but also providing key protection. Homeowners can find a useful idea of the difference in price between vinyl and aluminum soffits and fascia by looking at the general costs of siding, in which soffit and fascia costs are typically included. It is lightweight, easy to install and durable in many different climates. Soffits and fascia cost more toward the high end of that range, because they are more complex pieces of siding and take more experience to attach. Like vinyl, aluminum is used both in both vertical and horizontal pieces and can be manufactured with different textures, so there is little physical difference when it comes to choice. For instance, if it is a replacement job and you are having the work done for you, contractors will charge extra to remove and dispose of the old siding, which can tack on an additional dollar or two per square foot. Heat and cold can warp the siding material, and vinyl may be ripped off a house during high winds. It should not be used as a substitute for professional financial and/or investment advice. Soffits are areas facing down, such as the spaces on the undersides of rooftops and porches. Both soffits and fascia are types of siding, and though they be slightly higher-priced than the bulk of the siding, they are made of the same materials. When dividing costs out, soffit materials tend to be more expensive than fascia materials, and the thicker the siding the more expensive it will be to purchase. Aluminum, on the other hand, can fade over time with exposure to sunlight (not an issue with soffits) and maybe corrode in very wet climates, but it is highly resistant to heat.
Subscapularis Trigger Points: The Icicles Of Shoulder Pain by triggerpointtherapist.comA little understanding of these trigger points goes a long way towards “thawing out” a frozen shoulder. The muscle extends laterally to attach on the front of humeral head in the shoulder joint. Luckily, the trigger point on the inside edge of the muscle (not shown below) is much less common, because it is nearly impossible to contact by palpation and release manually. A unique “band” of referred pain around the wrist may occur as well. The symptoms associated with subscapularis trigger points are nearly identical to those attributed to frozen shoulder (shoulder pain coupled with limited shoulder joint movement), and are easily diagnosed and treated. This video is interactive and must be viewed on a computer to make use of the interactive elements. Contraction of the subscapularis rotates the arm inwardly and also pulls it towards the body (adduction). Typically the client is aware of this wrist pain, but does not think it is related to their shoulder pain. Repetitive use injuries in sports, such as swimming, throwing a baseball, or playing tennis. In the early stages, the client may be able to lift their arm, but will be unable to reach backwards with it.The pain associated with adhesive capsulitis is generally less severe than the pain from subscapularis trigger point activity, and both conditions tend to coexist and reinforce each other.
