Siding - Soffit & Fascia
Installing new soffit and fascia are a great way to enhance the exterior of your home, but they also add to the overall efficiency and functionality. If you’re making improvements to your home’s exterior, you may want to look into what soffit option is right for you.
What is Soffit and Fascia?
Your home’s soffit and fascia are located on the underside of the main roof, or other structures such as a porch, balcony, or arch. Soffit and fascia create a more beautiful, finished look for your home’s exterior. Soffit and fascia also cover the eaves of your home, so your rafters aren’t exposed to the elements. This is very important in Minnesota and Wisconsin's harsh winters!
What Purpose do Soffit and Fascia Serve?
One of the primary functions of soffit and fascia is to protect your home from the weather and other outdoor elements. Rafters that are left exposed to the elements are susceptible to mold or rot. Replacing rafters can be an incredibly costly undertaking, so protecting them with quality soffit can save you from the time, cost, and inconvenience of major repairs.
While you want to protect your home from the elements, you don’t want to seal it up entirely. Vented soffit allows for proper air circulation, which offers an assortment of benefits for your home. Quality soffit and fascia can help your attic and home stay cooler during the hot summer months, which can save you money on cooling costs. During the cold winter months, the additional air flow prevents moisture buildup normally caused by temperature fluctuations and snowfall.
What Types of Soffit and Fascia are Available?
Just like home siding, soffit and fascia are available in a variety of different materials. Whatever your budget, location, and style preferences, there is a type of soffit that is suitable for you.
- Aluminum. Like vinyl, aluminum soffit is incredibly popular with homeowners. Aluminum soffit and fascia are very durable, and will not crack or rot. For homeowners who live in climates with extreme temperature fluctuations, aluminum is a great option. It’s also fire and water resistant, and easy to clean.
