Soffit and fascia: the two go hand in hand. Fascia is the horizontal board capping the end of the rafters. The surface below the fascia is the soffit
Soffit, fascia and other elements of your roofing system give the exterior a finished appearance. More importantly, they help move water off the roof or that it wouldn’t cause damage.
There are various ways of installing soffit, fascia, or just one of the two components. Each situation is different. Decore Roofing Projects will be able to determine the best method for your home.
The main function of soffit is to assist with air circulation throughout your property's attic. Homes that were built prior to the 1990's are likely to have wood soffit. Calgary and its surrounding areas are very susceptible to overheating during the summer months, especially in the upper levels and attic. Increased interior condensation during the winter months may also lead to a buildup of moisture within the roof. This could potentially cause serious issues with mold and the rapid deterioration of a home’s roof. Eventually, such problems negatively impact a home's stability and warranty.
