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.
