Default fascia board

My fascia board has rotted and the homeowner association wants me to
fix it.

I do not own a table saw that will cut the 1/4 inch slot for the
soffit. I have about 200 feet of fascia board that needs replacing
and I don't know if they sell ready cut fascia boards..

What to do, what to do?

Not having seen it, I can't speak for your house, but ...

Many folks are able to just cut 1-by boards (i.e. 1x4, 1x6, etc)
to length, butt them up against the soffit, and nail 'em in place.
This can be done with appropriate wood supplies, a circular saw,
hammer, etc.

The usual problem to look out for has to do with rotten wood, etc
*under* the old fascia board.

Hope it helps ...

Exactly!

I'm thinking I will try cement board over the rotton wood and then
lots of paint and caulk on the ends at the corners. And use 1/2 in
quarter round on the inside to hold the soffit straight.

You can buy 2x6 and 2x8 grooved fascia at any real lumberyard.

Hire a contractor to fix it. If you're in a yuppie HOA subdivision, you can
surely afford a proper fix.
