What is the proper way to replace rotted wood ?

Sometimes common sense seems to interfer with the logic. When a home buyer ask for rotted woRotted wood covered in metalod to be replaced and the seller agrees, what is the proper way to replace rotted wood ?

I would agree that the rotted wood is to be removed and replaced, while others seem to think covering it with metal is a satisfactory repair. The logic behind replacing the rotted wood is to make a repair vs to hide the rotted wood behind the metal in hopes nobody will see it ( Including the appraiser )

The listing agent in this case tells me that they spoke to three seperate contractors here locally and they agree with wrapping the rotted wood is the best solution. I find this hard to believe, so no I ask your opionion.. What is the proper way to replace rooted wood. Would this be to replace with new wood, or simply cover with metal and call it repaired ?

I'm not an expert in the building industry, but something tells me this is not the correct way to repair or replace rotted wood.

* Note

This is just a couple of photos from this home. There are many areas of rotted wood covered in metal.
