Pictures of Installing a Soffit Box
Completed Soffit Box Installation
Building a soffit box can be confusing at first but when you see how it is done - it is really a no brainer. Soffit boxes are simply made from bending some F channel and fascia panels around the soffit panel.
Where the Eaves Meets the Gable End
In this job J channel was used to form the box channel. F channel can also be used. The J channel is extended out from under the eaves and bent at a right angle to meet the corner of the eave and gable end.

Soffit panels are installed and nailed at the roof eave structure. The soffit panels float the J channel.
Gable End Soffit and Fascia Box
The soffit panels are installed all the way out to the end of the gable end soffit box. A fascia panel is installed and bent around the soffit panels to hide J channels previously installed.
