After this past harsh winter I noticed this spot on our house where it looks like some soffit panels had fallen out. Honestly, I'm not sure what was in the space prior; I never found any panels on the ground if it'd blown down. And there's no lip really, just a nail as if maybe whomever set it up originally just nailed a piece onto the roof frame or something?
I'm looking for suggestions on what I should fix this with. Do I get a soffit panel and nail it over the spot? Just get some plywood and nail it there? Should I be putting something inside the empty space first before sealing it up? Ultimately I just want to seal it up to keep any potential critters and pests out, plus it was probably leading to some of the drafts over the winter!
