As a homeowner, you want to do the best you can to protect your home. That’s why it’s important to perform regular maintenance checks on the exterior of your property, not just when an emergency happens. One area that can be neglected by homeowners is the soffit and fascia.
Vented soffit and fascia prevents 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 troublesome areas.
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. The ‘breathing’ 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. Your gutters are installed on it, and it adds extra protection to your property.
We provide professional soffit and fascia installation, taking all of these factors into consideration. When you work with Soft Metal Experts, you’re left with a soffit and fascia system that’s easy to maintain, looks good and functions in the way it should.
In addition to protecting your home, soffit and fascia act as a barrier against animals and insects. With the right soffit and fascia 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 notice them. If they’re not, be prepared to deal with the possibility of bees and wasps making it their home.
If you need another reason to make sure your soffit and fascia are in top condition – it keeps you home cooler. The ventilation gives heat a place to escape to in the summer. You can keep your house cool without having to pay increased air conditioning bills.

LUX panel is an exterior contractor’s dream. It’s available in a multitude of colours and textures, is affordable and is a Canadian made product. Additionally, it comes with several benefits and certifications. Best of all, it is simple to install.
If you’re wondering why LUX Panel, well, for one, it’s made from heavy-gauge, galvanized steel. Furthermore, 30 years of experience went into the design to create a metal cladding product that is unique to the cladding industry. 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. With over 56 options to choose from, there’s something for everyone.
Vinyl siding has been a popular choice for residential cladding since it was introduced to the market in the 1950s. At Soft Metal Experts we work with Mitten Building Products to offer Mitten 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 affordable option when compared to aluminum or metal siding. It is 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.
Metal used for panel siding, soffit and fascia, or cladding is one of the hardiest types of materials you can use on a home. 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 more common on residential properties.
Corrugated metal is durable and recyclable. It also 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 resistant. We believe in building trusted partnerships with manufacturers, which is why our metal panels come from Westform Metals.
