What are Soffit and Fascia?
The soffit and fascia are two essential components of your roof's structure. They are essentially planks or boards fitted on the underside of your home's overhanging eaves. While they may seem like a minor addition to your home, they offer tons of benefits.
Soffit: Soffits provide an outlet for the heat and moisture to exit your attic, thus maintaining your home's temperature. Providing an adequate outlet for heat and moisture ensures that your home is warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Fascia: Fascia boards are installed over the rafters or trusses. The boards provide an effective barrier between the roofline and the exposure to the elements. Like the soffit, the fascia also helps prevent damage to the roof and attic due to moisture.
