A soffit is the underside of a roof, located beneath the rafter tails, while a fascia is the flat, vertical finishing edge that covers the end of the rafters. Both of these architectural elements add visual interest as well as exterior protection. They prevent rain from being blown into the house beneath the eaves, allow you to disguise your attic’s ventilation, and keep out curious pests like bats, birds, and squirrels. If you’re going to add soffits or fascia to your roof, contact the experienced professionals at Taylor-Made Roofing to ensure that the installation will be completed properly.
New Construction & Replacements
If you’re constructing or replacing soffits or fascia, please give us a call. We can help you install these features correctly, waterproof them for extra protection, and repair them if they become damaged. For new construction projects, you will need to choose between two excellent materials: aluminum and fiber cement. Both of these materials are durable and easy to maintain. Look for a product that offers a strong warranty as well as an attractive appearance, great strength, and resilience.
Maintenance of Soffits and Fascia
We recommend that you have your soffits and fascia inspected and cleaned about once a year to maintain their efficiency. You may need to repaint them, reseal them, or add caulk in vulnerable areas. If you spot mildew or mold, simply wipe it off using a soft brush and a cleaning solution created from bleach and water. It is also important that you keep an eye on your gutters and clean them regularly, because if water backs up in your gutter, it may damage the fascia board.
