    Default Metal fascia over timber issue's

    Hi
    Just had some metal fascia installed over timber.
    Got a roofing company into to do the job. I am wondering does this look like a professional job ?
    The issues I have is every end has been cut differently and looks rough. Also the fascia doesn't sit level with the timber it's covering ,flush some spots and big gaps others .Joins in the metal fascia are rough and sharp .Each side of the house the job has been done differently even though the roof line is the same side to side .

    Should the fascia cover sit over the original timber fascia ?
    This stuff doesn't look wide enough
    Getting company owner out to have a look to see if he thinks it's acceptable . Too me it looks very amateur and definitely not worth the money.
    Where they have cut in around the power entry there is a gap and it's crooked .
    Am i being too harsh ?

    Is this this the right profile for fascia cover ?
    I was under the impression it should be flat up the inside ,not have the lip for attaching brackets .
    It's looks like if your fascia looks ok from the street the inside (which is visible from front verandah and rear deck ) doesnt matter if there are voids on covering the old fascia . Its becoming frustrating when you dont have time to do a job and get in a professional then you spend more time trying to sort it out than it would take to the job .

    The fascia shown is used if you also replace the soffit linings. The recess on the inside is for fitting the soffit. It is the wrong profile if you keep your present soffits. You are correct that the profile should be flat on the inside as shown in the brochure below.

    I am now being told due to the age of the house ,this is the best it can be done . If they where to make the inside right it would look no good on th outside. I know they have used the wrong fascia but they are saying that's all they use .
    Really don't know where I can go with this

    Easy answer from my perspective is... don't pay. That is a @@@@ job...

    How can one call themselves a roofing company and only use one type of fascia covering in a city the size of Brisbane?
    Contact whatever the Queensland equivalent is to the Vba here in Victoria and hopefully they can help.

    They could have easily had bespoke fascia cover folded to your requirements. I've done this myself through Lysaght

    so maybe they were using up leftovers from another job?

    I agree, very sloppy and not at all acceptable. The corner mouldings should cover neatly the lengths of flashing.
