    IMG_0291.jpg hello

    I recently our house attached garage insulated and ceiling put in. I was examining the gutters and noticed the attached. Seems the soffit has come away from the wall (think that's the correct term). Feels like the roof beams are pushing against it so not sure how long its been that way. The new celling isn't wet in that corner so not an urgent problem but clearly not good!

    Any advance would be greatly appreciated.

    Are you saying that this has just happened, this looks like it’s been like it for ages?

    Fascia board, soffit goes underneath.

    Though your could be called a bargeboard as its directly on the wall.

    Anyhow back to your pics, because your boards are fitted directly on to the roof joists it would suggest some movement in the joists, them getting wet would cause this.

    Yes I’m not sure how long it’s been like that. It may be I haven’t noticed. I’m not sure if I should just use sealant to attach it back ? Or is there a better way ?
