Your roof system is complex but serves a critical function of protecting your home. Your soffit and fascia are two main components to your roofing system that you might not know much about until there’s an issue that needs addressed. If you’re looking for soffit and fascia repair or installation services in Merritt Island, the team of experts with Gutter Professionals can help you understand your needs and options.
First, it’s important to understand the roles your fascia and soffit play in protecting your home so you can understand what to look out for if they become damaged. Damages aren’t always seen, and it’s important to catch them early to prevent costly repairs in the future.
Your fascia and soffit work with your gutter system to make sure your house is breathing and functioning as it should
The soffit is part of the overhang you can see where your roof meets your siding. While it serves a critical functional purpose, the soffit also adds the aesthetic appeal to the outside of your home. It covers the underside of your roof hangings, protecting rafters from moisture and helps to preserve the life of the materials the make up your home’s structure.
The fascia provides a finished look to your roof’s edge and can be seen from the ground as the board along the side of the overhand and the roof. 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.
While both of these appear to be aesthetic in nature, they serve functional purposes. 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 on the inside of your home. 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 in Merritt Island.
Soffits and fascia can be made of different types of material, depending on the age and style of your home.
Soffits can be made from aluminum, wood or vinyl. Unlike wood, vinyl and aluminum are long-term solutions that will not rust, rot or disintegrate. Our soffit installation experts will work with you on the material best for your home.
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 ability to best fit your home and its ease to install. Often a bit more expensive than vinyl, aluminum soffit and fascia tend to be less impacted by heat and can lost longer than vinyl.
