Hi there, I am wanting to replace most of the fascia on my manufactured home (built in 94). The only problem is I can't for the life of me figure out what to replace it with. It's about 1/2" thick and 10" tall, dimensions which I can't find anywhere. Any advice?

I have replaced my facia on the front and back sides. I pulled the old stuff off - and bared it all the way down to the rafter tails. Watch out for your drip edge !!

I screwed a 6x1 to the rafter tails, splicing boards between the tails as needed. Then I ripped lengths of LP SmartSide (without the grooves in it) to the width that I needed (6.25").

With the lumber "shortage" the stuff is going for better than $40 for a 4x8 sheet.
Opportunity has a shelf life.
