I Need to remove some existing sofit so I can get access to install an electrical outlet for a motorized awning . The sofit is 18 inches wide . Is there a technique or tool that will allow me to remove this without damaging it ?
Assuming you have metal fascia as well, gently remove the nails securing a section of it where you need to work. Flex it out, then remove the hidden nails holding the soffit. Lower the soffit panels slightly by tilting them downward, and slide them past the fascia individually.
Reinstallation is the reverse.
