The upside down V point on either side of the house. I need to cut new pieces going up. Just wondering what angle to cut these with. How do I determine where to precisely cut them? Is 45 degrees correct? I'm trying to figure out what method to use to

Answers:

its dead simple ..hold one piece up to the peak ..from that peak hold a level in a perfect vertical .mark the line ...adjust your bevel to copy the line ...reverse bevel for second ..barge boards ....note ..they are barge boards on a gable end ..fascia on front and rear ..normally horizontal

The angle depends on what you have there.

Today's spelling word is: eave

Eve is short for evening.

You will need to figure out the pitch. All you need is a level and a square. Here's how: https://www.mycarpentry.com/roof-pitch-c...

It depends on the pitch of the roof.

It depends on the pitch. Grab a chunk of cardboard and lay it over the old fascia and cut the cardboard with scissors. That is 1 board angle. The other is identical. They will butt join them together and then silicone the minor crack tight. Paint later on and you don't know nothing...because nothing shows.
BTW 45 is extreme. I would guess closer to 30+/- area.

Ninety degrees.

The angle of that V will vary depending on the pitch of the roof which can vary from 4.5 to 45 degrees or so. A 12/12 pitch roof is 45 degrees but that's pretty steep. Most homes have a 4/12 to 6/12 pitch roof. If you know the pitch of your roof, you can fairly closely calculate what angle that V will be and cut the boards by that ...see chart in link.

A somewhat easier and more accurate method I use is to lay one of the fascia boards in place up to the center of the V...then use a small level set to the center of the V and adjust it/hold it plumb ....mark the board along the edge of the level and cut that board along that mark. Then lightly nail it in place so it lines up with the center of the V. Set the next board in place on the opposite edge so it overlaps the first board with the top points meeting....then mark that board with a pencil along the cut edge from the first board. Cut that board and set in place so they both line up at the V. Nail in place. You can cut the boards for the other side of the roof to the same angle but in some cases, the angle may be off a bit and leave a gap or not butt up properly. Recut as needed or fill the gap with caulk.

Use the old ones for a pattern. Alternate, buy one of those angle matching tools at the hardware store.

It all depends on the pitch of the roof. People that do this kind of carpentry for a living usually keep the old piece that was removed as a template or have a tool that they use to determine the angle.

If you are going to clad the fascia, it really doesn't matter - the joints can be butted rather than mitered. Even without cladding, a butt joint will not be visible behind gutter, in any case.
