Anyone have a good detail for where the siding meets the soffit on a vinyl sided home? I've seen and/or done F-Channel, Jchannel with aluminum L bend behind the soffit, Lineal/frieze detail, etc. I know there are guys one here who do some awesome siding work, just wondering if there is some minimalist detail that has a nice look to it.

Now that's pretty slick. You use that on the eave side as well?
Yes and No. It really depends on the house layout. With Hardie it's a no brainer. Eliminates the need for caulk.

You lose the lock possibility with vinyl since it's not J-channel. Your only option is to caulk the top piece lock ridge. I know some frown on it but if you use a good dab of say NP-1 it never fails. I find it holds better than the snap-lock over time.
