When Should I Consider Soffit and Fascia Repair?

When Should I Consider Soffit and Fascia Repair?

Soffit and fascia are the unsung heroes of your roof. Shingles and gutters are very important to the proper functioning of your roof, but the soffit and fascia are also critically important. Because they are under the overhang of the roof and much smaller than the shingled portion of the roof, they can be forgotten. They also require less maintenance than gutters do for proper functioning. But when your soffit and fascia become damaged through age or rot, this can change the way air flows in your attic, which can affect the temperature of your whole house. Soffit and fascia also play a critical role in keeping pests out of the home. Don’t forget to take care of these important parts of your roof and get your soffit and fascia repaired as needed to keep your roof functioning properly.

Soffit And Fascia

What Is Soffit?
This is the perforated layer that hides the underside of the eaves of your roof. Soffit is visible if you stand underneath your overhang and look up. The function of soffit is to help with air ventilation in the roof while keeping out pests and giving the home a finished look. Without soffit, it would be easy for birds, wasps, and carpenter ants to get under your roof, and the amount of air in your attic would be uncontrolled, leading to abnormal regulation of temperature throughout the home.

What Is Fascia?
This part of the home is also on the underside of your roof overhang, but fascia is positioned under the gutters and encloses the edges of the roof. The fascia of your home serves to keep pests and water out of your home while also offering support to the gutters and creating a finished look. Fascia can be made out of different materials but it is often made out of wood. Fascia creates a finished appearance to your home, improving curb appeal.

When Should I Get My Soffit And Fascia Repaired?

As with any other aspect of your home, as the soffit and fascia age, they will become more susceptible to damage. Cracking is a common sign that these elements of your home need replacing and this is often caused by age and sometimes by extreme weather changes. There is not a specific length of time that soffit and fascia last, so you need to look for signs of age and wear. Although soffit and fascia are designed to last for many years, if you notice changes in your home’s ventilation or temperature or if there are pests or water inside your attic, you may want to consider the age of your fascia and soffit. You may also want to consider soffit and fascia repairs if you notice peeling paint or blistering of the soffit or fascia.

If your gutters are overflowing the water will drip over the edges of the gutters and onto the fascia and cause damage in the form of rot and mold. Ice dams can also damage both the fascia and the soffit. If the soffit and fascia are exposed to water, they can start to rot or mold and will need to be repaired or replaced. Rot ruins the structural integrity of the fascia and soffit and it allows moisture into the attic, which can change the airflow and dynamics of the attic as well as cause other water damage within the attic.

If you have pests in your attic or if you notice animal or insect activity on the overhang of your roof, your soffit or fascia may be damaged from pest activity. Some pests can ruin the structural integrity of the soffit and fascia by damaging the material to make their home within your roof. If you see pest activity, you may need a soffit and fascia repair.
