Nail Grades and Heads You must use exterior grade nails. A finishing nail, which has a smaller head and can be countersunk, will give a clean look but nails with a head will be more secure. You can hammer it farther into the wood and cover with putty, caulk or wood epoxy before you paint.
Use carpentry nails that are at least 2–3 inches (5.1–7.6 cm) long so the board stays firmly in place. Start your first nail 1–2 inches (2.5–5.1 cm) from the top of the fascia board and pound it straight through into the end of the rafter. Repeat the process on the other end of the fascia board so it’s held firmly in place.
