You have probably heard of a Soffit and Fascia, but exactly what are they and how important are they for your roof?
The underside of your roof is the Soffit. It acts as a vent and allows air to flow through, as this helps cool the underside of the roof in the summer and prevents it from overheating. It is important for your home because it helps your home’s energy consumption by reducing the cost of AC in the summer. The Fascia is vital for protecting your siding from rainwater, which can stain or rot your siding. When put together, the Soffit and Fascia close the underside of your eaves and roof to protect the inner structure from moisture and mold buildup.
