Vinyl soffit

Soffit and fascia blew off the gable of the house in the storm... Was wondering if anybody knew where I could find or at least the name of this type of has the usual wood grain surface but has a uniform 'v' in the center of a double 6" soffit. Thank you

Good luck with that one. I've never seen a D6 vinyl soffit before, aluminum yes but not vinyl. In fact i've never seen vinyl soffit quite profiled like that either.

That looks like "Vertical", vinyl siding - not soffit.
I've never seen vinyl, soffit that looked quite like that!

If you can't find something to match - try re-using it.

Ditto, if it's not broken then just put it back up and nail it back in place.
99% of the time when I see fasia fall off it's because no one nail it in where it's bent to hold up the soffit.
I have a special punch that makes an oval hole that's sized for trim nails.

Can not tell you how many time when it falls off the home owner has tryed to reattach the fashia with roofing nails, not pretty.

Do you have vinyl preformed fashias, if so there's the main reason it fell off. That stuff is junk.
