Vinyl corner post cut at angle near roof

I have a contractor putting vinyl siding on my house and he's cut the vinyl post at an angle near the roof where it meets the metal wrap. The problem is that the vinyl post is thicker than the metal wrap so it juts out further (see picture). has anyone else run into this problem? Definitely makes the house look cheaper.

The corner trim goes under the rake trim.

Back up and take another picture, that one makes no since how it was done.
Is this new constrution, or trying to reside an older home?

Here's a picture of the garage. They are covering up the old wood siding on the house. (gutter hasn't been installed, yet.

Wirepuller38, are you saying the corner post should go all the way to the top and the rail trim should cover it?

Thanks

No, the vertical trim should be just under the rake trim. You'll see the channel provided for that if you look closely at the rake. He just put it on the outside rather than under it.

If they werent the ones to clad the fascia, theres nothing wrong with it, imo. The reason it looks bad is because the fascia isnt thicker than the siding. If old siding would have been removed, the vinyl wouldn't stick out so far. Or if the fascia would have been added onto, and reclad so as to protrude farther than the siding... I imagine the fascia was already clad and they aren't getting paid to do any thing other than install the siding.

Putting j channel over the top of the corner would be ok, but isn't the entire problem here.

Yes, I think the main problem is the fascia board isn't thick so it doesn't come out further than the corner post. I was thinking of putting something decorative up there to cover the space. I'll see how it looks once the gutter go up.

Actually, it was all wood siding before, so they just wrapped the old wood fascia.
