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.
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.
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.
Another benefit to a proper soffit and fascia installation is heat also has a place to escape to in the summer, keeping your house cooler and more bearable during those summer months.

LUX Panel can be used as siding, soffit or in other exterior cladding applications. LUX Panel also comes in a variety of colours and textured looks.

Vinyl has been a popular choice for residential cladding since it was first introduced to the market in the 1950s. At Soft Metal Experts we work with Mitten Building Products to offer vinyl siding, soffit and cladding to the Calgary area. Mitten offers several vinyl colours and styles to choose from.
Vinyl siding, soffit and cladding are an more affordable option. It’s durable, long-lasting and low maintenance. Vinyl is also an energy efficient solution. For example, insulated vinyl siding can help keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Colour choices range from darker earth tones to lighter pastels. In addition to being Soft Metal experts, we’re also experts at installing vinyl cladding applications in Calgary.
Metal panel siding, soffit or cladding is one of the hardiest types of materials you can use. Made from corrugated metal panels, Soft Metal Experts can expertly install pre-painted or galvanized 24-gauge to 30-gauge metal to your property. Corrugated metal siding and roofing are becoming a more common on residential properties.
Corrugated metal is durable, recyclable and comes in a range of colours, making it an attractive choice. In an area prone to hail storms, this is a product that will also stand up against Calgary’s temperamental weather patterns. Metal panels are dent, buckle and warp resistance. We believe in building trusted partnerships with manufacturers, which is why our metal panels come from Westform Metals.
