The soffit is the underside of your roof’s overhang, commonly seen over balconies, porches, and overhanging eaves. As an imperative aspect of the building’s exterior, the soffit acts with both aesthetic and functional purposes in mind.
Functionally, it is essential to have a properly working soffit to ventilate the air. Air ventilation is important for two reasons; first, a good soffit will protect your roof from moisture that can create mold and shorten the lifespan of your roofing system. Additionally, soffits are integral to the proper attic ventilation. Efficient attic ventilation also preserves your building by preventing moisture buildup, as well as improves indoor air quality and your house’s energy efficiency. Overall, a good and properly installed soffit allows a steady air stream to flow through your roof to prevent molding, mildew, and rotten wood, overall increasing the longevity of your roofing system and providing your home with quality air.
Aesthetically, the soffit can add character to any building as they are available in a wide range of colors and designs to fit anyone’s styling taste.
With many selections in a variety of different materials and colors, Vanity Roofing helps you pick the appropriate choice for all types of homes.
The fascia is the longboard that runs behind the gutter, or along with the roofline boxing in the overhang. It typically fully supports the bottom row of roof tiles and the gutter. A nice fascia also serves to make the exterior of your home look polished and complete.
There are a wide variety of material choices for the fascia, it can be made from wood, composites, aluminum, and other metals.
Proper installation of this component is extremely important because it can determine how well your home is protected. A properly designed and installed fascia should provide a good, strong foundation for your guttering systems and lower roof tiles, as well as work with the soffit to provide proper airflow and ventilation to your home. Fascia can also be vulnerable to water damage, which can result in problems of mold, rot, or rust.
Soffit and Fascia Repair
Soffits and fascia work together to protect the structural integrity of your home, while also adding those finishing touches that complete the look of a building’s exterior. Soffit and Fascia services are often completed together because of their proximity to each other, if something is wrong with one of them, chances are something is wrong with the other as well.
An improperly working soffit could end up costing you thousands in energy bills, whereas a well-ventilating soffit keeps your home cooler in the summer and helps prevent ice dams from forming at the edges of your Ottawa roofs in the winter. In certain cases, if left untreated your attic could start to grow mold and mildew due to the moisture not being able to escape. Let our team at Vanity Roofing help you protect your biggest asset.
