Soffit Repair or Replace?

550 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  finishesbykevyn
How do you know if a soffit is beyond repair? This is the worst one on the house and that bow makes me think it should be replaced. We used to replace these but it's been a while and I forgot how long it used to take us. I don't know that much about roofing/framing. How far apart are the rafters? Looks like the soffit is 6' long.

How long does it take to replace one?

In my experience, rott repair should be T&M. You have no idea what you're into until you pull that sheet down. Maybe there is more going on that meets the eye. Tell client that you can pull the sheet down and atleast investigate.. You'll have a better idea what you're working with.
