If you cover up the rotten wood with wrap, it will cause the rotten wood to spread and possibly cause the rot to go to the inside of your home.
Once all of the repairs have been completed, you must identify what color and texture of aluminum trim coil you want to install. Also what areas you will be wrapping and if wrapping a soffit, you must identify what color of vinyl soffit you would like to install as well. The main areas people wrap around their home is windows, doors and garage frames. These can be easily added to the project description when replacing doors and windows. Another common area to wrap is the upper rake boards, freeze boards and soffits. If done correctly, this will prevent moisture, woodpeckers and exterior elements from damaging your wood.
