What is this piece/section called?


I know this is a dumb question - but I have no idea what to refer to this as. Please look at the photo and tell me what the proper term for the item in the circle.

I have one of these that has deteriorated and the previous owner covered it with a half a$$ed trim coil job.

also - is this a job for a roofer or siding guy or both? as you can tell from the photo - the siding is currently being done with the roof to be done next.

It's pretty small image and hard to see but I think a cornice is the proper term.

I agree with joed, it's a cornice return

usually built on-site

May want to rebuild it with vinyl crown mounting next time so it will not rot.
More a job for a carpenter then a roofer.

Jpg images usually are smaller file sizes and work better than bmp for posting.

Spaceboy,

Depends on the type of siding you have, I would replace it rather than repair it.

More importantly, however, any siding guys should know how to solve your problem... Sometimes, it is a special order product and they just install it as a finish piece.
