The aluminum metal cover option is less expensive than to hire a Painter to prep and paint fascia boards, looks smoother, matches the new gutters perfectly, lasts longer, and protects the boards from the elements better than a thin layer of paint. Additional cost if this requires a larger strip of metal for different custom cover or for the diagonal rake edge board covers.

$ 7 for pre-primed spruce 1X6 fascia boards installed w/screws
$ 8 for a thicker pre-primed spruce 5/4X6 fascia boards, or 1X6 cedar fascia boards
$ 9 for 5/4X6 cedar fascia boards, or a 2X6 Douglas Fir
$ 12 for the preferred 2X6 cedar fascia boards
  Many other options are available.

$ 2

extra charge for removal and disposal of your old fascia boards

$ 2

extra per linear foot for painting to match the house trim, before installation, weather permitting (includes the paint), or $0.50 less for using the client supplied paint.
$ 5 for pre-painted aluminum sheet metal cover formed to seal the lower half of a standard 1X6 fascia board, and wrap underneath, formed from a 4" wide strip. Attached behind the gutter when installed at the time of gutter replacement. This can even be installed over rafter tails without a fascia board.


for 20oz copper cover formed from a 6" wide strip.

Roof Cleaning and Treating Work
Based on a 10' square area of roof

If you are fortunate to be living here in the Portland, Oregon Metro Area, we will be happy to assist you with your needs to clean off the moss build-up of your roof, doing it the right way to not cause more harm that good. Go to our Moss Control web page to learn more, and even read how to do it yourself.

A square of roofing is 100 foot sections, or a 10' x 10' area. These prices are based on a small 10 square house roof of a low slope composite asphalt shingles. The cost also varies due to the complexities and safety issues to access all the areas of your roof.

It is not uncommon for a small house to have around 10 squares of roofing surface, or 1,000 square feet. This is different than the floor space in a house. For a rough idea of the cost, if you happen to know the roofing surface size, you can calculate the cost by your roof squares.

(a) $800 to do a simple scrape and clean up; removing the bulk of the moss, which is around 70 to 80%, which includes a gutter cleaning.

(b) $2,000 to do a simple scrape and clean up; removing around 70 to 80% of the debris, and install an 18” wide custom 20oz copper roof ridge cap 30' long. Keep in mind that this should be the last time it needs to be done, and the copper ridge cap is removable to be reused after a new roofing is installed, so it should be a one time investment.

(c) $1,600 to carefully scrape the moss off, removing around 95% of the moss build-up, with clean-up, including the gutters (takes over twice as long to do)

(d) $3,000 for a 95% scrape and install an 18” wide custom copper ridge cap 30' long.

(e) $1,800 for just an installed 18” wide custom 20oz copper roof ridge cap 30' long, w/wood support, but no roof cleaning needed.

(f) $2,400 for just an installed 24” wide custom 24oz copper roof ridge cap 30' long, w/wood support, but no roof cleaning needed.

Many other options are available, but this is to help give you an idea of the general costs involved. These copper ridge caps can be mounted on roof hips as well, and be supported underneath with boards for more impact resistance. These can also be made to function as a hidden ridge vent.
