Roe Roofing can retrofit your home with new aluminum soffit and fascia so that you’ll never have to worry about painting or rotting wood ever again. Upgrading your soffit and fascia does not only increases the aesthetic value of your home, it also efficiently facilitates air intake into your attic space. This helps to eliminate hot air build up, which can lead to problems such as ice damming, and helps to maintain the life of your home’s roof and shingles.
Soffit is the material that spans from the top of the house’s exterior walls to the edge of the roof. In other words, soffit fills in the gap between your home’s siding and the eaves. It is meant to protect the wooden structure underneath from moisture, which in turn leads to rot.
Soffit can be vented or non-vented. Vented soffit helps to cool your home by allowing cool air into your home’s attic space as well as allowing warm air to escape your home, which helps prevent problems such as ice damming. For this reason, we usually recommend that homeowners upgrade to vented siding.
Fascia is the vertical band underneath the edge of the roof. It fills the gap between the shingles and the soffit. Fascia has more than aesthetic value. It’s primary function is to protect the wooden beam underneath from moisture. Properly installed fascia will help to maintain the longevity of your roof.
