What Are They?
When you are talking about soffit and fascia, you might know that they are related to your roof, but not what they are and what they do. A soffit is essentially the underside of your roof, where it extends past your walls. If you have ever looked at your roof and noticed that it is wider than your house, you will understand what parts of your home the soffit is designed to protect. They sit underneath your roof on the overhang sections. A fascia sits underneath your roof at the edge and is what gutter systems are secured to. They provide protection for the outer band of your roof. Both can become damaged and need to be inspected when you have your roof inspected. If they are damaged or too damp, you may need a soffit and fascia replacement to make them safe again.
What to Look For
If you want to know when you may need soffit and fascia Installation, there are a few things that can give you a clue. One is that your gutters are leaking or damaged. When your gutters aren’t working, this may be causing your soffit and fascia to get wet and waterlogged, which is not good for their integrity. Other things to look out for are water damage inside, which could show itself in any room in the house, and if you find insects indoors where there weren’t any before. This could indicate that there is a hole or major damage somewhere, which needs to be fixed without delay. Of course, if your soffit and fascia simply look old or worn out, this is something that you should talk to a roofer about. These roof components are usually made of wood or vinyl, so they aren’t designed to last forever.
