One of my goals for the Kuppersmith Project house was to make the exterior of the home as low maintenance as possible. To achieve that end, we used composite material from MiraTEC that’s treated with zinc borate for rot and termite resistance as the fascia boards on the eaves.

Blocking had to be added to the new sections of the house before the fascia boards could be installed to provide room for the brick veneer, which would come later.

To give the eaves some added character, we used a closed-cell, urethane foam crown molding from Fypon that’s treated for UV protection to tie the fascia boards to the roof sheathing. Installing crown molding around a roof is challenging work since it requires many different angles to be cut.
