Two of the most overlooked but important parts of the roof are the soffit and fascia.
The soffit is the uncovered surface beneath the overhang of the roof. The small holes in the soffit assist in attic ventilation and draw heat and moisture away from the house.
Because durability is important, most soffits are made from vinyl, which can withstand the elements for a number of years.
The edge along your roof line is called the fascia. It acts as a layer between the edge of the roof and the outdoors and helps protect against water damage from rain and snow. Fascia also adds a design element to your roof and can be simple and modern or ornate and period.
Whenever you redo your roof or siding, you should inspect your soffit and fascia. Chicagoland Remodeling can help you determine if your soffit or fascia has signs of rot or other damage. Chicagoland Remodeling will help you ensure they are in good condition and can replace them if necessary.
