Vinyl over fascia, how to finish overhang?


I have an older house with wide soffits, about 23 inchs. I am applying vinyl to the fascia boards but when I get to that "big triangle" on the end at each eave I am stuck. What is standard practice for this area? Aluminum sheet?

Yes, exactly. I have a fairly large one. The vinyl I bought for the fascia board is about 6 1/2 wide, which won't cover it from the bottom up.

that is what we here on the island call a pork chop!. It is covered with a aluminum trim coil. that we bend on a bending brake. you can not buy this piece pre-bent as far as I know. If your covering all the trim on your home with pre-bent alum. fasica trim. what i would recommend is rent the bending break from a tool rental or big home box store and pick up some coil stock for around 75.00 and bend everything your self. this way all the trim will match in color with no shade difference. good luck bob.
