Allowing for facing board at gutter?

Love Calm Quiet

When long panel of metal roofing runs down the underlayment and needs to extend out over gutter, how do I deal with the added height of the facing board (whatever that's called)? This is going to result in a vulnerable area where the roofing panel will not have support of the underlayment. Will I have to: 1) fill? 2) plane off facing board? 3) move facing board? There was no apparent strain for the asphalt shingles of old roof, but I'm concerned about this scenario for a metal roof. Is this *normal* way carpentry at eves is done? (House only 3 years old, in Colorado high desert.) Perhaps picture can explain situation better: http://www.wellpathresources.com/roofingatgutter.jpg

PS: I find some problems with the functionality of your forums. Are you up for feedback?

For example: I just registered with this name. But when I try to log it w/password, it doesn't recognize me. When I click on "send my password" it says "Love Calm Quiet" is not a know member. SECOND: The name associated with my first post (above) is not updated when I update my profile. When I filled out the profile I had no idea my "real name" would be displayed - instead of my ~member name~. And now there seems to be no remedy. If your bulletin board is going to work that way your profile-fillout form should so WARN new users. That make sense? [I guess you may need to inform the folks from whom you obtained this FORUM system.]

Hello, Thank you for your roofing question and also for your comments on the site. I will pass your comments along to our web developer. Regarding the roofing question ... it is more normal for the roof deck to extend over the fascia. The situation you have could be bad for several reasons and, while some metal roofing installers may just ignore it and go over it, I would either plane down or replace the fascia boards.

Thank you for the tough news. That's what I suspected. Not the first unsatisfactory work by a subcontractor on this house. I appreciate your being there with an independent judgment.
