Installing Soffit


I have been looking all over and have mainly seen new install of soffits is on wood framing houses. I need to install soffits and fascia on a concrete block garage that is separated from the house. At first, I thought the instructions were to install a F or J channel on the underside of the rafters at the top of the wall. After reading some more, I noticed that the soffit is level with the fascia. If I followed my initial thought of instructions the soffit would have a slight incline.
Is this correct or are there a few different ways of installing the soffit?

Thanks for your help,

Installing Soffit

The soffit should be level or perpendicular to the wall. If you have block walls to deal with, fasten a 2 x 2 belt to the walls with tapcons and then you have something to fasten your wide faced J channel to.
