Default Eaves damage

I found today that eaves were hanging on one side at the back of my house.
How much it costs to fix it? If it is less i would like to avoid insurance.

Repair cost for materials should be under $5.00 & about an hour or so of labor.
It appears the J-channel that recieves and holds up the soffit panels came loose.
You may have to remove a few soffit panels, nail the channel back up and reinstall the panels.
Of course this is assuming the 1X board that the channel nails to is not rotted.

If you do have rotton wood up there, you do have bigger problems.
