How to fix the drop eave sheet drop from the eave?

Due to the hot weather, I find the eave sheet is falling off as in the photo. just wondering is there any idea to fix it (diy) rather than change to the whole sheet. maybe use some 90 degree aluminium alloy to hold both side, not sure how to do it. 

 

checked the Bunnings website, this link https://www.bunnings.com.au/james-hardie-hardieflex-2400-x-600-x-4-5mm-fc-eaves-1-44sqm_p0714506, I think this production is really good, just for the back up if have no choose to change the whole sheet.

 

Let's discuss. WechatIMG1 1.jpegWechatIMG2 1.jpegWechatIMG3 1.jpegWechatIMG4.jpegWechatIMG5.jpeg

Looks to me like the rafter has dropped down and the facia board looks to have bowed out some, it may be a trick of the photo though?

@mdddtuky I'll leave the expert advice to those tagged into the discussion, I'm sure they will reply shortly.

I would imagine the fascia board is screwed into a frame behind it, could we possibly send some screws straight up where it has dropped on the edge fixing it into that?

Could you screw/nail a length or quarter round into the fascia back - to support the fibro?

I think you are right, cos the weather is too hot or too cold, I think it is the reason

Hi Noyade, 

Yes, thank you so much. I believe it may work, because my front eave have the quarter round this way - but not sure why back yard doesn't have it. but no crew in. not sure how to stay with fascia.
