Generally made of sheet metal or wood, a fascia is a board that is vertically attached to the roof’s border. Serving a long list of purposes, it connects to your gutters and provides your roof with a clean, crisp look. The roofing of your property would not look uniform without the fascia. Wood rot due to excessive moisture in the rafters is prevented by the fascia. The most important purpose of the fascia is that it is a support for the gutters, holding them in place. Fascias are very important and need to be effectively maintained for the duration of time that they’re in place.
Placed horizontally on the underside of a roof, balcony, or arch, the soffit is installed with the intention to protect the interior of a home from damage. Ventilation must be considered when installing the soffit, as improper ventilation can aid the collection of moisture leading to structural damage. The soffit, when properly installed, will ensure minimal dust enters your home or building, and prevents pests from nesting in your roof.
When Should You Call a Professional?
Though flaking paint and cracks of your soffit or fascia may seem like simple cosmetic damage, water leaking is often the result. As soon as you notice such issues, we highly recommend that you contact us immediately to allow us to perform repairs. You may have an issue with your fascia or soffit boards if you notice pests such as rodents or bugs within your roof. Lack of ventilation in your attic or roof may require the help of professionals, as well as the presence of water in your roof void. These issues can lead to an array of structural problems.
Call us if you would like more information or guidance on whether your soffit and fascia boards need our attention.
