Your soffit and fascia are critical components to your roofing system that are often not given much thought until a major issue has been identified. If you’re looking for soffit and fascia repair or installation services in Cocoa Beach, the team of experts with Gutter Professionals can help you understand your needs and options.
It’s important to understand the functions your fascia and soffit play and to know what warning signs to look out for to identify damages. Your fascia and soffit are major contributors in ensuring your house is breathing and functioning as it should
The soffit is part of the overhang where your roof meets your siding. Like many parts of a home’s exterior, soffit serves both an aesthetic and a functional purpose. It covers the underside of your roof hangings, protecting rafters from moisture and helps to preserve the life of the materials.
The fascia is the stylized board along the side of the overhang and the roof that provides a finished look to your roof’s edge. Often called the “transition trim” between the home and the roofline, your gutter system sits on top of your fascia and your fascia supports your shingles. Additionally, the fascia helps keep moisture out of your shingles.
Issues to your soffit and fascia can be hard to identify until larger problems start to appear. Some telltale signs you need a professional soffit and fascia installer to evaluate your home could be the appearance of rotting wood or unknown leaks. If you notice your fascia looks like it needs painting, or if you can see peeling and discolored areas, you might have damage that needs addressed by a trusted soffit and fascia repair service.
Soffits, specifically, are a critical part of your attic’s ventilation system. If you notice a lack of ventilation, you’ll want to have your soffit inspected by a trusted contractor.
Soffits can be made from aluminum, wood or vinyl. Wood rots over time, which makes soffit replacement an ongoing expense. We recommend installing soffits made of aluminum or vinyl and we will work with you to determine the best choice for your home. Both vinyl and aluminum are long-term solutions that will not rust, rot or disintegrate.
Vinyl soffit is the top choice among many people, and balances cost, performance and maintenance. Vinyl soffits are exceptionally resistant to dents and scratches and have long lifespans. In additional, vinyl soffit is available in a wide variety of colors, textures and grains to best match or contrast with the rest of your home’s exterior.
Aluminum is a common choice for both soffit and fascia material. The biggest benefit to using aluminum is its ease to install and its ability to create a tighter fit than vinyl. Often a bit more expensive than vinyl, aluminum soffit and fascia tend to be less impacted by heat and can lost longer than vinyl.
Though your soffit and fascia generally require little maintenance, it is crucial they remain working at full capacity to protect your roof and allow ventilation for your home.
The most common cause of damage to your soffit and fascia is due to storm damage. With heavy rain and high winds we see in Cocoa Beach and other coastal Florida communities, it’s important to have a soffit and fascia installation service inspect your roof systems following a large storm.
