5 Reasons to Install A Soffit System

5 Reasons to Install A Soffit System

The soffit, which means “something fixed underneath,” is the siding underneath your roof’s overhang. Inconspicuous and hidden from street view, the soffit system may be neglected by new homeowners who do not understand its function. Yet, it plays an important role in keeping the home habitable and in good shape.

By installing a durable soffit system, you can expect to reap the following benefits:

  • Better protection for your roof 
  • Reduced moisture in your home
  • Less maintenance 
  • Superior aesthetics 
  • Increased resale value

For a soffit system that checks all the above, get in touch with Asonic Roofing. Since 2011, our family-owned roofing company has completed hundreds of soffit installation and repair projects across Calgary. Your soffit could be next! 

Why You Should Install A Soffit System 

Think of a soffit system as a protective barrier that separates the bottom of your roof from the elements. Without it, the construction  of your roof would be exposed. Not only would that be unsightly, it would jeopardize the health of your home. 

A good vinyl or aluminium soffit system helps your home in the following ways: 

Protect your roof: The most important job of your soffit is to protect the rafters from inclement weather. Without soffit to insulate them, they would get wet from the rain and snow. This in turn could lead to mold and rot, making your home inhospitable. A soffit also keeps pests and small animals from nesting in the rafters. 

Reduce moisture in your home: Most modern soffit systems come equipped with soffit vents and can improve the airflow in your attic. When the home is damp, the soffit brings outside air inside, which decreases moisture. Minimizing moisture in your home is a key component of healthy living, as mold can cause severe illnesses in residents. 

In addition to controlling moisture, the increased ventilation provided by the soffit can reduce your home’s temperature, keeping your electricity bills low. In the winter, the soffit can prevent heat from the attic from melting the snow on the roof, which can cause ice dams and leakages. 

Reduce home maintenance: By protecting the structural integrity of your rafters and keeping moisture out from your home, your soffit system is directly saving you thousands of dollars that you would otherwise have to spend on repairs and roofing services. 

If your roof gets ravaged by rot or pests, replacing it could cost upwards of $10,000. Remediation for mold costs a couple thousand dollars as well. In comparison, installing a soffit that would protect your home for decades to come costs significantly less than any maintenance it would prevent.

Improve your home’s appearance: Leaving the underbelly of your rafters for everybody to see is unsightly. Thankfully, soffit systems are more than just a necessary accessory to your home; they can be customized to improve your home’s aesthetics too. 

Soffits come in a variety of colours and finishes, including classy wood-grain. Regardless of your home’s architectural style, you are bound to find a soffit that complements its appearance. 

Increase your home’s resale value: Potential buyers will certainly examine the upkeep of your roof and siding. If your soffit system is poorly maintained or non-existent, buyers will place a lower value on your home.
