Home fascia and soffit serve as a nice decor and finish to home's. But there is much more than just a nice look to these two elements. In this article I will explain to you how both your home fascia and soffit help protect your home.
Soffit is the underside of roofing that connects the exterior of a house to the roof overhang, otherwise known as fascia. Soffit serves the purpose of allowing attic ventilation. This is why one can see that soffit has very small holes in it. These allow air circulation to draw out heat and keep moisture out of the attic space. Soffit can be found in many materials, with the highest one used is wood soffit.
Fascia is the overhang that runs along the roof line, serving as a support for roofing. Gutters are as well connected to the fascia. This element besides giving the exterior of a home a beautiful finish protects your roofing edge from moisture and various weather elements. Like soffit, fascia may be found in many materials with the main material being wood.
Having both soffit and fascia installed correctly and maintained well are important to ensure the best outer look to your home, but more importantly to make sure your roofing has the best protection possible.
