Measure and mark locationsTo determine the location for frieze starter, begin by placing a level along the bottom of the fascia board and extending towards the wall. Once it is level create a mark along the top side of the level where it meets the wall. This will be the location of the top of your frieze.
Attach frieze starterTo attach the frieze starter, place the frieze against the wall and align the frieze with the mark you made in step 1. Keeping the frize level with your mark, attach he frieze to the sheathing using 1 1/2" roofing nails spaced as needed.
Attach steel soffitTo attach your steel soffit panel slide one end of the panel into the frieze starter. Attach the outer edge of the soffit to the bottom side of the fascia board using 1 1/4" colored trim nails.
Attach fascia trimTo finish off your soffit and fascia, apply fascia trim to the fascia board. Place the top edge of your fascia trim under the bottom lip of the roof edge. Attach the fascia trim on the underside of the fascia board using 1 1/4" colored trim nails spaced as needed.
