    Question Timber to colorbond fascia conversion

    Ladies & Gents,

    My client has recently gone from timber to colorbond.

    240mm to 185, and the roof plumbers have fixed their fascia to an apparent medium, inevitably giving the client an issue at the top of the brickwork where the previous eave would lie.
    a generous 35mm+ height differential.
    They're not exactly happy, nor would they be satisfied with their eaves installed on the p1-5s.

    My issue is; it's Friday and i can't for the life of me work out the solution.



    Any advice appreciated,
    Cheers

    So you can see over where the other unit joins, their fascia is still timber.
    Obviously you can see the height differential too.

    Given the differential between the timber at metal fascias, we now have a higher eave line.
    Meaning we'll have a significant gap from finished eave to brickwork

    Better to upload the photos to this site rather than a link.

    Dont really see the problem, fit eave lining and trim if required.
    Or am i missing something ?

    You might be,
    So as you can see with the image posted below, the tin track that returns the eave from fascia to frame - is on a serious fall (35mm+)

    The owners are worried about the look and the possibility of water run off.

    The reason for the height differential is stated in OP.

    Cheers

    So is the slope downwards toward the house or away from it. ?
    If away from the house this will help if there is overflow into the eave and some eaves are fitted this way as standard.
    If toward the house just fit the lining level, then use a timber trim to cover the gap. Profile of the trim is a personal preference but older style homes used either Scotia or Ovolo but for a modern look a square profile is often used. Or fit and have the gap filled and rendered to match the wall.
