    What's the best environmental approach to repairing/replacing external roof fascias? House was built around 1985, 2 bed semi type.

    Are they rotten? Why do they need repairing? The wood that they used to use was very good and had they not been painted then they would probably not have needed replacing. The crucial thing is to keep them dry and not let any roof water get onto them rain itself is not a problem.

    My favorite is to leave them bare wood = no maintenance! ( if there is a problem you will be able to see it as it wont be under the paint)

    Not sure 1985 wood was that good. 1895 maybe?

    Could you do away with the fascia altogether and use drive in brackets or rafter brackets for your gutter? There are loads of buildings that do very well without them, old and new. Volume builders just find them a handy thing to fix plastic gutter brackets to.
