If you're like most people, you probably don't think too much about the soffit and fascia around your home. But if you've ever had a roof leak, or you have seen signs of mold or mildew in your attic, you know how important it can be to keep these areas clean and dry.
So what are soffits and fascia? Soffits are the lower portions of a wall that extend beyond the exterior walls of your house. They're usually made out of wood, metal, or vinyl siding. The purpose of these soffits is to protect the window openings from rain and snow damage, while also allowing proper ventilation in the attic.
Fascia is the boards that run horizontally across the rooflines. The fascia's purpose is to protect your home from water damage from leaking gutters or downspouts. Fascia also provides an aesthetic element by enhancing the appearance of your home's exterior finish, while it also helps to prevent moisture buildup in wood framing such as rafters or joists.
Fascia boards are a critical part of any roof. They hold the gutters and downspouts in place, which can prevent water from leaking into the area beneath the roof deck itself. They also cover the rafters, which can prevent pests and other animals from entering your home through the attic. Finally, they provide curb appeal by covering up exposed ends of rafters and unsightly tar paper or other materials used to protect against leaks. If a problem develops, it could be a sign of structural damage somewhere in your roofing system.
Soffits are a cost-effective to improve attic ventilation, and keep you home protected from water damage. When ventilation is restricted, heat and moisture can build up in your attic. This can lead to many problems, such as ice dams in the winter and corrosion of metal roofing components . Proper attic ventilation also helps prevent pests from nesting in your attic. The benefits of having soffits in your home are twofold: first, you'll be able to protect your home from water damage-second, you'll keep harmful insects out of your attic space.
