What Exactly Are Soffit & Fascia?
Soffit is the exposed siding underneath your roof’s overhang. It has venting that helps keep air flowing between your roof and your attic. Airflow is important to prevent moisture buildup and mold in the attic, and also to release heat from the attic in the summertime.
Fascia is the exposed board on the front of your roof’s overhang. It serves as the last line of support for the lower edge of the bottom row of roof shingles, as well as the attachment point for your gutters. Therefore, your fascia needs to be strong enough to support your gutters during torrential downpours.
Signs That Your Soffit & Fascia Need Attention
Much like the other components of your roof, the soffit and fascia are constantly exposed to damaging rain, humidity, sun, wind, flying debris, and pests. At Rogers, we generally recommend inspecting the soffit and fascia at least twice a year to look for:
- Rotting wood
- Chipped paint
- Mold and algae
- Sagging sections
- Insect, bird, and animal nests
Other possible signs of trouble with the soffit and fascia include leaking gutters and poor attic ventilation.
If you spot issues like these early on and address them right away, you may be able to avoid or delay a more extensive roof replacement. Rogers Roofing can help. Contact us today to request a consultation at your home in Hammond, IN.
