Soffit & Fascia
What Is Soffit And Why Is It Important?
Soffit is the exposed siding under your roof. Soffit is important because it has venting that helps air flow between your roof and attic. Your roof and attic needs air flow or else moisture can build up leading to mold. Soffit also helps keep animals and insects out of your home.
What Is Fascia And Why Is It Important?
Fascia and soffit go hand in hand. Fascia is the siding board you see on the front of your roof’s overhang directly on top of the soffit. Your fascia is where gutters are installed. Fascia also helps support your roof’s tiles and shingles. Fascia are an important part of your home’s outside decor because they’re visible to everyone. If you want your home to look great, your fascia needs to look great as well.
Benefits Of Aluminum Soffits And Fascia
If you’re looking to install/replace soffits and fascia, you’ll find options such as wood and vinyl. The most popular soffit and fascia material by far is aluminum. Aluminum soffits and fascia are a great choice for the following reasons:
They Are Easy To Install
Aluminum soffits and fascia can be installed on all homes in all seasons including the winter. Aluminum is a malleable metal, meaning it’s adjustable and can fit into sharp, tight spaces. Compared to wood and vinyl, aluminum fascias are far easier to install, meaningless labour cost. They also come in variety of colours and styles that will complement your home’s style.
They Require Less Maintenance
You’ll never need to repaint aluminum soffits and fascias because the colour is permanent. This means that, unlike wood, aluminum finish won’t flake, peel, warp, or rot. When properly installed, aluminum soffits and fascia can protect your home from moisture for 15 to 20 years.
They Protect Your Home and Deter Pests
Animals like squirrels, raccoons, and possums are very good at digging into the weak spots of soffits and fascia. Aluminum soffits and fascia last for decades. They are far more durable than wood and are difficult for animals to chew through. Aluminum is also a non-combustible material, meaning it helps protect your home from fire damage.
