Soffit is located in the area under the eaves of the exterior of your home. It extends from the side of the house to the edge of the eave and closes the space beneath. Depending of the structure of your roof, soffit dimensions can be anywhere from 3 inches wide to 3 feet wide.
Your soffit is more vulnerable to weather damage than many other parts of your home, and because wet material rots, it is important to immediately repair damaged soffit. Also, squirrels and birds can damage soffit, since they like to nest in the space behind it if they can find a point of entry, and bees, hornets, and wasps can cause trouble in and around your soffit as well. Trust our experienced professionals at Racine Roofing & Remodeling to take a dedicated approach to handling your soffit installation and repairs.
Fascia board is a type of roof trim that is mounted on the exposed ends of rafters or the top of exterior walls, creating a layer between the edge of the roof and the outside. Fascia serves an aesthetic function by creating a smooth, even appearance at the edge of your roof, but it also protects to roof and interior of the home from weather damage.
If the edge of the roof is flush with the edge of the walls, fascial may include soffits for venting, but sometimes the soffit is hidden under the eave, invisible behind the board. Fascia also provides points of attachment for your gutters and drainpipes, to ensure drainage from the roof so that water does not pool around the house during the rainy season.
Prolong the life of your fascia by gleaning gutters regularly, which will help avoid water build up around the edges of the roof. Remove moss and chunks of material that become wedged between your gutters and fascia. Regular maintenance, such as painting, will also help keep these trim materials in proper condition.
