Soffits and Fascia

The Soffits and Fascia on Your Home Are Very Important Parts of Your Roof.

In order to help our staff understand what you need from us, it is helpful for you to tell us which part of your roof needs repair. Is it the fascia or the soffits. If you’re not sure which part of your roof is the fascia and which part is the soffits, here are some useful definitions for each.

Soffits
Soffits are essentially the underside of the eaves of your roof. The purpose of soffits is to prevent water from being able to get under the roof. They are usually made from vinyl or aluminum. Typically, if they need repairs it is for water damage.

Fascia
The fascia on your roof is the trim that runs along the edge. It’s purpose is to close of the end of the roof and protect the roof’s edge from water. It also provides your home with a clean, finished appearance. Typically, fascia is made from wooden materials, and it is most susceptible to overexposure to the UV rays of the sun.
