Brick house question


On the brick houses I noticed an aluminum trim piece that runs up past the soffit. I can not find anywhere online that shows exactly what that is. Anyone know?

A photo would help to get an accurate answer.

Anything has been possible in Detroit construction based on living in MI for about 8 years.

You can't have any aluminum on a brick house. That would make it a brick/aluminum house.

Sure it's not a piece of 1 X 6 wood covered in coil stock? Do you have vinyl or aluminum soffits?
There has to be wood there to attach the J or F moulding to hold up the soffit.
It's called a frieze board.

the soffits are aluminum. What is the purpose of that 1x6?

ah I see so it really doesn't serve any structural purpose? Oh ya my other question was how far does the brick usually go? just below top plate and where sheathing stops?

We still do not have a picture, so were all still guessing about what your talking about.
