My existing wood fascia is about as old as the house (~12 years) and its time to scrape, sand and repaint as I have some serious peeling in some parts. This is AZ so no boards are rotting though. It looks like the boards were pretty rough and furry when installed so a good sand and prime may make them last longer than 10 years, I dunno (10 years is probably when they should have been painted).
I'm considering getting a composite trim board so I never have to do this again (or at least do it less frequently), anything that would be around $1-$2 per linear foot to replace 1x6 trim board would be good. Does anyone have experience with a good alternative material that will be lower maintenance? Or is it just a better deal to scrape and sand the existing wood if it's in good shape? Other than some warping that I'm going to have to fix all the boards appear to be in decent shape. I'm willing to pay a few hundred bucks for alternative boards if it means I don't have to do this again in 10 years.
