The Importance of Fascia & Soffits
Fascia and soffits are two important parts of your home’s roofing system. The soffit is an exposed piece of siding located directly under the roof’s overhang. The fascia is a long straight board positioned above the soffit and along the lower edge of the roof. These crucial pieces of hardware play a vital role in protecting your home.
Soffit contains the venting for your roof, which helps to keep a steady airflow between the roof and the attic.
Soffit prevents moisture from building up, thus preventing mold from growing inside your home.
Soffit helps to release heat from the attic during the hot summer months.
Soffit keeps animals and insects such as bees, wasps, and birds out of your home.
Gutter systems are installed on the fascia, which needs to be in optimal condition to support the gutters.
Fascia is visible to those who see your home, whereas soffit is not as visible. Keep the fascia in good condition to maximize your home’s curb appeal.
Fascia and soffit replacement can be costly to fix if not taken care of properly. The moment you notice a problem in either of these areas, it’s best to call a professional roofing contractor so you can avoid future expensive repairs.
