The soffit and its importance in the roof lining
Soffits of roofs are often not visible unless you look just beneath it. It is the underside structure of your roof, providing more support for the roof overhang. Sometimes, soffits are there for curb appeal, but they serve more than just being an architectural complement.
Soffit materials are made from either wood, vinyl, or aluminium, but the one you choose for your home should be appropriate for your location’s climate.
The fascia is the exposed part of the roof mounted to the edge of the rafters, and it goes hand in hand with the soffit. It’s the roof lining mainly visible compared to soffit and gutter. Above the fascia is where the gutter is built. Fascias are usually made of plywood but have been replaced with materials that can withstand moisture intrusion. It is built to seal and protect the roof and the gutter.
Fascia and soffits for gutter support
Fascias and soffits work together to keep the roofline in good condition. While the gutter is responsible for diverting rainwater down the spout, as it gets heavier and stressed during inclement weather, the fascias and soffits are literally affected.
Gutters get loose or hang off if the roof builder who placed it is inexperienced.
The release of heat, prevention of mold and mildew and keeping away pests and insects to nestle to are the primary function of soffits. Keeping your soffit in good shape will prevent these from happening.
If you suspect a crack or hole, or if you notice your fascia is not horizontally and perfectly attached, and bents a little, you either have it repaired or replaced.
Torrential downpour can sometimes happen at a certain location. The extreme importance of these three roof members will keep your home safe and comfortable to love at all times.
