They say that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, but when it comes to the roof we believe that the emergence of wooden houses or modified side houses are repaired with several roofs. Wider surfaces not only give the look and feel of the log cabin, they offer protection jual blockboard from the UV rays that are dangerous that can break chemical bonds in the protective layer you have been tekuni.
When talking to customers about installing modulogs on the side, the question of how to finish off the underhang roof and the soffit ceiling usually appears. Now that they have made a commitment to making cedar and homeowners removed from the project, some people tend to over-react and plan to use wood fitting in this soffit area.

Our recommendation: The easiest and cheapest way to trim the bottom of your roof and the porch ceiling, is to use a 3/8 “or1 / 2” plywood board. Typically called T-111, this panel has textured exterior sides or “sawn” and is made with or without vertical grooving. Use ungrooved material and cut the panel to fit: plug with the rough side. Make sure and stain before installing. A small air stapler will speed up the work even more.
