Tips for Securing Peak Boards

Here’s a question from our 6/29/2019 Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Daniel from Washington says, “I have 2×8 fascia boards on peaks of the roof that are nailed at the bottom to 2×6 horizontal boards with gutters.
Is it ok to put short, vertical 2x4s on the ends of horizontal 2×6’s to get extra holding power for 2×8 peak boards? Ends of the peak boards are showing age.”

We tell Daniel to use some wood deck screws and a cordless drill and carefully supplement the nails that are in the boards.

Listen above for the segment!
