A few days ago, John had to rip off the old fascia on the west side of the house because a small amount of water got into the old master bedroom.
Before he finished with the drywall in that room, he had to seal a gaping crack between the old brick work and nailer for the facia. (He used clear silicone exterior caulk.)
Afterwards, John and Joe installed the new 1×8 Hardie fascia. It’s now sealed without leaks.
