You need to install a 2x2 nailer to the inside of the fascia and have the soffit recessed a bit.

Post a picture if you can.

You don’t want to attach the J directly to the block. You should attach a 2x2 to the block and then nail the J to that. The J needs to be able to expand and contract so you don’t nail it tight.

As far as boxing in, if you mean the transition between a level run of soffit at the eaves into the gable end, you would frame that in with wood and wrap that end in aluminum.

Once again a picture would be helpful.

The 2x nailer goes above the J, the J is still in contact with the block It’s just not attached to it. It’s attached to the nailer above.

This is strange to me....
I used "F-Channel" and aluminum fascia for my vented soffits.... standard 6" wood fascia, drip edge, etc. Where would J-Channel come into play?

Just curious....
