    Rendering with fascias


    I've got a house that needs all the render removing and re-doing. Is it better to render up to the fascia boards or remove all the fascias and render to the top then add the fascias after?

    "23-11 No need to remove fascias if they'e all in good condition...render up to them, but if they're rotten maybe a good time for replacement."

    "It is better to render to the fascia boards.
    If you remove them first and render under you will have to trim every length of fascia to fit.
    If you render up to existing you can easily seal the top of the render to the fascia.
    Hope this helps"
