Soffit and Fascia: Don’t Overlook the Small Stuff
Most of the time people only notice the prominent features of their home like windows, doors, and siding. As a responsible homeowner, you should not neglect the less essential features like the soffit and fascia. What are they exactly?
The soffit is the exposed siding found underneath your roof’s overhang. It’s important because it provides ventilation that helps keep a steady airflow between your roof and attic. It goes hand in hand with the fascia because it serves as the last line of support for the lower edge of roof tiles or shingles.
The Benefits of Soffit and Fascia
At Platte Valley Siding & Windows, we provide aluminum soffit that is strong, durable, and maintenance-free. It does not rot or warp, and it is also noncombustible. There have been significant improvements to the appearance of soffit and fascia than decades ago. Today, both aluminum and vinyl soffits are available in a variety of factory colors.
Aluminum is typically used for eaves and trim. In most cases, we install aluminum over existing wood to create an extra insulation barrier.
