Fascia, then soffit, then gutters is how I'd do it.

Soffit then fascia then gutters. If large roof area and/or steep, better to install 6" rather than 5" gutter.

Mine would have been rather impossible in that order, since the bottoms of the fascia hold my soffits.....

Soffit, fascia then gutters. Measure the soffit so that you can nail it tight to the inside of the fascia board. Then it will be easy for you to wrap the fascia metal under the fascia board so that you are able to cover up where you nailed in the soffit.

DM - how did you get the correct measurement for a bend that would be sufficient for the fascia? Was it a pain to get the soffit in?

Nope, I used aluminum fascia, aluminum F-channel on the wall and vinyl soffit connected piece by piece and slid down the length.

Yep, then they are all nailed/stapled. Seen plenty of soffits blow out with little wind because they were just held up by the fascia.

I don't use coil for fascia though. Only steel pre-made fascias.

How can he do it in that order?

Existing fascia is on already. Where I'm from the new soffit gets nailed to the bottom of the fascia and the F-channel gets nailed to the wall. After that the fascia gets wrapped with a L-bend at the bottom covering the soffit. Gutters last.

If venting the attic with this, use continuous metal venting close to the fascia board for keeping the rain and snow from entering rather than the positive air flow near the house wall. If perforated, make sure to use enough for a balanced venting system.

I just had soffit and aluminum coil fascia done this summer, and new gutters. They put the soffit on first and put a bend of about 1-1/2" on the aluminum coil to cover the soffit attached with small stainless steel nails the color of the aluminum coil and soffit. The main tip I could give you is when they metal break the fascia, have them put that extra bend in it to prevent wrinkling on the gable ends and make sure they get it under your drip edge well. On the gutter, I used the brackets and screw system which don't show so you don't have to use gutter spikes and it makes for a cleaner, neater look.

also I forgot to mention, I used the normal size gutter but went with the 6" downspouts. No problems and everything looks really nice. good luck!

It's the larger downspouts, helps with getting the water out quicker.
