    I have one of them prefab concrete garages which has a corrugated roof (probably asbestos) and a wooden fascia board and capping.

    The capping boards and fascia have rotted which I need to replace. What kind of wood should I use. Should I use pressure treated timber or will normal planed redwood suffice?

    The only problem with pressure treated timber is it difficult to find the right size. I need 115mm wide x 15mm thick

    The cladding has also started to rot but I might be able to get hold of some treated shiplap for that.

    Any advise appreciated.

    Plastic.

    Sorry, probably doesn't help, but it won't rot!

    You can buy a L shaped UPVC fascia board, which should be around the 115mm you need and once fitted it will last forever, plus much cheaper than wood.

    Have a look here :- https://www.eurocell.co.uk/ There are other suppliers.
