Proper soffit and fascia installation helps to complete the appearance of your home. That’s why professional installation by Jordan Exteriors is indispensable.
Soffit and Fascia are final decorative touches that create a beautiful finish for your house. They cover existing overhangs and roof edges to smooth the overall appearance of your home. These additions create lasting beauty and give extra value to your home while eliminating the need to paint in hard to reach and hazardous areas. Soffit and fascia are available in several different styles and materials, depending on your budget and preference.
A soffit is the exposed surface beneath the overhanging section of a roof eave. The soffit can help ventilate your attic through small holes that provide air circulation. The soffits draw heat and moisture away from the house, reducing rot in the sheathing and rafters of your home.
What are the signs that it’s time to replace your soffit?
The soffit is more vulnerable to weather damage than any other part of the house. Your soffit can be repeatedly soaked by water from torn shingles, damaged or rusted flashing, ice dams, or poorly functioning gutters, causing rotting. Additionally, small animals can damage a soffit when they nest in the space behind soffits. Regular inspection can alert you to repair or replacement necessities.
Fascia installation is a vital aspect of proper roof construction. The fascia is a vertical finishing edge connected to the ends of the rafters, trusses, or the area where the gutter is attached to the roof. The fascia acts as a layer between the edge of the roof and the outdoors, and protects against water damage that can occur during certain weather conditions. In addition to protecting the wooden board from water damage, the fascia protects the entire roof and the interior of the house from weather damage by blocking its entrance to the home. Aside from its functional role, the fascia also plays a very important aesthetic role since it creates a smoother, more even appearance for the edge of the roof.
What are the signs that it’s time to replace your fascia?
Fascia board can be vulnerable to water damage which leads to rot, and the rot can spread to the rafters and roofing materials which is undesirable. However, it is usually not necessary to replace the entire length of board; instead, a short segment can replace a damaged spot if care is taken to ensure the seams of the boards meet on a rafter so that they can be firmly nailed in place.
If your soffit or the fascia has developed rot or shows other signs of damage, it’s important that you contact Jordan Exteriors to prevent exposing your home to damaging weather conditions due to a lack of proper protection.
