As a homeowner you want to do the best you can to protect your home. That’s why it’s important to also care for the exterior of your property and not just when an emergency happens. One area that can be neglected by homeowners is the soffit vent and fascia board.
Properly installed and vented soffit and fascia is important to preventing moisture buildup in your attic. Without a proper soffit and fascia installation moisture will seep into your home, resulting in water damage and dry rot. In the end you will spend more repairing the system as a whole than you would have by replacing the existing nonfunctional system in the first place.
One way to look at it is to consider the attic to be the respiratory system of your home. Like you it needs to breathe. Your roof soffit and fascia act as the inhale, while your roof ventilation acts as the exhale. This creates a natural draft which will keep your attic dry and free of mould.
What Is Fascia Board
Fascia works directly with the soffit vents. But, because it’s more visible, it needs to look good if you’re going for curb appeal. It also plays an important role as it’s the last line of defense for the bottom row of your roof. It’s what your gutters are installed on and adds extra protection to your property. We provide professional soffit installation, taking all of these factors into consideration, leaving you with a system that’s easy to maintain, looks good and functions in the way it should.
Keep Pests Out
Additionally, soffit and fascia act as a barrier against animals and insects. With the right installation they won’t be able to get into your home. Broken or damaged soffit vents or fascia board should be replaced as soon as you notices them, or soon you’ll have to deal with bees and wasps making it their home.
