Soffit is the flat area that covers the underside of the roof's overhang. Typically, vented soffit is required to provide the attic with ventilation, which reduces condensation buildup. The buildup in winter freezes along the bottom side of the roof sheathing and melts, causing leaks and rot, leading to structural issues.
The fascia is the vertical part of the eave structure where the eavestrough is mounted. As this area is prone to water damage, aluminum fascia covers act as a barrier to protect the fascia boards from decay, eliminating the need for repainting.
Replacing the soffit, fascia, and eavestrough together gives you the option to change colours, increasing the appeal of your home with a completely new and updated look.
A sign that your soffit and fascia may require repair or replacement is when you notice discolouration, peeling paint, sagging wood, damp patches or other issues in your roofing system. Once the damage has happened, your soffits and fascia need the care of a professional soffit and fascia company such as Splashdown Eaves, who can remove and install new soffit and fascia, or repair the old material.
Together, durable soffit and fascia protect your home from natural harm in all the seasons. A qualified soffit and fascia advisor will help you through the style, colour and quality selection method of your prospective soffit and fascia. For any questions, read our FAQs.
Tips to Keep in Mind
The installation of soffit and fascia in your home prevents small animals and birds from getting in under the roofing, offers ventilation for attic, and complements the home's exterior décor with aesthetics.
● If you notice rust or mould on your soffit, clean it using a soft brush or broom, water, and a cleaning solution made with bleach.
● Regularly check for bee, hornet or wasp nests. If you don’t wish to work on a ladder or the nests are huge, call a professional to remove the nests.
● If you wish to install your vinyl fascia yourself, cut the pieces a bit larger than you marked so you can overlap the joints.
