I want to partially drive some exterior coated deck screws in the vinyl fascia on my house for easy hanging of Christmas lights mounted to 1×2 8ft strips. I plan to just hang the 1×2s via oversized holes in the 1×2 for easy up and easy down. The 3” deck screw would be left year-round.
Is that a stupid idea to penetrate the fascia? What if I drove the deck screw through a dollop of silicon?
(Its a 2-story colonial with front gables. I don’t always have safe access to the fascia but right now I have a set of scaffolding. I will be able to hang the strips on the screws from a ladder next winter.)
