On hip roofs and bird boxes I have always bent a one inch "L" bend in the fascia and installed it overlapping the the straight cut. I fastened it in place with colored stainless steel nails. I have always put the bend in an out of view area. Today I was told that I was doing this incorrectly. That the straight cut should cover the bend. This leaves an edge that is not always tight against the bend. Is there a right or wrong way? I've been doing it the first way for over 30 years an now to be told on the fifth day of a new job that I've been doing it wrong is shocking. Let me know what you think.

I am sorry but I am not following this. These things often come down to what looks better, provided both perform suitably.
