If you're looking to replace your existing fascia plate, you'll need to remove the gutters first. Fortunately, this is a relatively straightforward process that can be done with a few simple tools. To start, you'll need an electric screwdriver. Unscrew the gutters behind the existing fascia plate with the screwdriver.
Then, place the brackets under the gutter to keep them in place and unscrew them so you can lift them up and away from the fascia. After that, remove the supports from the fascia channel so that they can be reused on the new plate. Finally, remove the gutters from the areas where you are going to replace the fascia plate. Common residential gutters are installed with long nails that secure the gutter to the face plate. To remove them, carefully detach the nails from the gutter with the lever or the claw of a hammer. Once all of the nails have been removed, you can lift up and away from the fascia plate.
Be sure to take care when doing this as it is easy to damage both the gutter and fascia plate if not done correctly. Once all of the gutters have been removed, you can then proceed with replacing your fascia plate. This is a relatively simple process that can be done with a few basic tools and some patience.
