Alum soffit, installation of j channel

Post by copojo » Fri Oct 05, 2018 2:25 pm

I'm using two J channels on my aluminum soffit install, my question is do you butt the j channel to each other or do you overlap it for expansion and if so how do you trim it to overlap it. I'm in a warmer climate here so it doesn't get cold here like the prairies. thx jo

Butting them is the way to go. Temp changes do not effect aluminum like it does vinyl.
