In reply to siding and soffit by Maryam on July 10th, 2002 12:25 PM [Go to top of thread]

Greetings again,

Soffit= Is the area under your overhangs. Soffit is what you see when you look up.

Fascia= Is what faces out on your trim.

J Channel= Is a piece of vinyl that is in the shape of a "J". This is a reciever trim that you would put around a window or door or other dead end.

Your vinyl siding is going to expand and contract about 3/4" and this covers the ends so they are not seen.

Starter Strip= Is what the first piece of siding locks into.

If you are buying a siding job, and not having you trim done, you should not be paying extra for J trim or Starter Strip. You can't do the job without it!

If you are being charged extra for these things, move on to the the next company.

*Question - Have you signed a contract or are are you still shopping?

Did you call this person to get the job done, or did they call you?

If they called you, RUN AWAY!

Good luck,
Ps. post back and let us know what part of the country you are from.
