Located beneath the eave on the exterior of your home, soffit is what seals the space beneath the edges of your home's roof. It is also used to improve ventilation of the attic by drawing away moisture and heat through small holes that are part of your soffit system. Attic ventilation is extremely important because when heat and moisture become trapped, it often leads to rotting in your rafters and sheathing. These damaging issues also affect your fascia, which is what home builders use to create a barrier in between the edge of the roof and the outside elements. Your soffit and fascia can additionally fall victim to insect infestations and bird nesting issues. Soffit is widely available in vinyl, aluminum, fiber cement and is available in many different colors. Fascia can be manufactured with fiber-cement board, cedar, and aluminum.
If you are experiencing the following issues, you may need to replace your home's soffit and fascia.
- Leaking Gutters
- Insect or Animal Infestations
- Signs of Water Damage on Interior Walls
- Frost in the Attic
Why Put Soffits on Your Home?
There are many homes that do not have soffits but soffits are crucial parts of your home's over-all ventilation system. Soffits serve many practical purposes. For example, they protect the house from negative effects of extreme heat during the summer. When your soffit is damaged, it continues to rot and break down. This can cause damage to your roof and drywall materials. This causes larger problems, costing you more time money.
