The soffits and fascia along your home’s roofline may look like the aesthetically appealing finishing touch to your roof, but they actually serve a purpose for your home. They should last at least as long as your roof but, as with anything else on your home, require proper maintenance. At FloGutters LLC, we have improved homes in the New Smyrna Beach community since 1976 with our gutter services, and offer soffit and fascia repair and installation. Let us talk about soffits and fascia and the purpose they serve, as well as the connection they share with your gutters.
What Are Soffits and Fascia?
The soffit is siding located on the underside of your roof’s overhang, and the fascia is the long, horizontal board directly above that along the edge of the roof. Although these terms are sometimes used interchangeably, they each serve their own purpose. The soffit contains the venting for your attic, prevents moisture from entering, and keeps animals and pests out of your home. The fascia supports your gutter system, which is installed directly on it.
When Do They Need to be Replaced?
There is not an exact timetable for soffit and fascia replacement, but there are some signs that it may be time. If you notice cracks or chips in the paint, evidence of pest activity, rotting wood, or any type of mold or algae growth, give the experts at FloGutters LLC a call. The best time to replace your soffits and fascia is when your gutters are down, especially because you’ll want to install new gutters on a fascia that is in excellent condition. If you are planning to have your gutters replaced, go ahead and check your soffits and fascia for signs they need to be replaced as well.
