repair vinyl soffit

Just discovered that the vinyl soffit above my bedroom has come loose and obviously letting rain in which resulted in a partial colapse of the plaster ceiling in my room. Any suggestions on repair? Can't get it to fit back in the channel. Am I gonna have to replace the entire channel and soffit? Are there clips that I can install and use?

Hello Mystelite,


Welcome back.


It sounds like you might have more going on than just your vinyl soffit leaking. It sounds more like your roof might be leaking. In my area most soffits are to cover the underside of the eaves not to keep the rain out.


I may be totally misunderstanding what you mean by your vinyl soffit. If you could post a couple of pictures it would help me figure out what kind of soffit you have and how to repair it or if we need to look at fixing something else.


I will keep a lookout for the pictures and see what we can figure out from there. :smileyhappy:
