Soffit refers to the underside of a building’s element. Soffits will provide proper ventilation for your home’s attic. Because of its location, soffits are often vulnerable to weather and water damage. When your gutter fails to function properly, from gutters being clogged or pulling away the soffits can begin rotting from water exposure. Another cause for fascia or soffit rot, are animals. They are cute to look at but if they build a nest in your gutter or there is a hole in your fascia boards they can enter your home.
Soffit eaves and gable overhangs are susceptible to water damage caused by ice dams, improper flashing, torn shingles, and faulty gutters. And once water has seeped in, the rot spreads quickly because the wood stays soggy inside the dark, dank space
Proper fascia installation is the key to successful roofing construction. Located underneath the line of the roof, the fascia serves as the foundation for your home’s gutter system. Not only does it improve the appearance of your home’s exterior, but it also protects the interior home and its roof from the elements.
