Soffit & Fascia
Soffit and Fascia
Soffit and fascia both play a crucial role in the overall function of your home.
Soffit provides the needed ventilation for your attic. Soffit serves a valuable role as it allows air to circulate under your roof to ensure that the underside of your roof and attic is properly ventilated. An improper ventilated attic can cause a variety of problems like, dry rot, ice damning and condensation buildup in the winter and excessive heat in the summer, which may reduce the life of your roofing products.
Fascia seals the ends of your eaves and provides a decorative look. It also provides a flat surface for the installation of gutters.
Vinyl Soffit and Fascia
Vinyl soffit and fascia is a popular choice for homes and commercial buildings for several reasons. Vinyl soffit and fascia is attractive and comes in many colors and styles. New manufacturing technologies are producing a better quality soffit and fascia with less resistance to cracking and a longer lasting life. Vinyl soffit and fascia is considered to be a low maintenance product as there is no need for painting. Additionally, it is not affected by dry rot or insect infestation and can be recycled. Vinyl is very affordable when compared to aluminum soffit and fascia and other types of soffit and fascia products.
Aluminum Soffit and Fascia
Aluminum soffit and fascia is another popular choice for homes and commercial buildings for several reasons. Aluminum soffit and fascia is attractive and comes in many colors and styles. Aluminum soffit and fascia is considered to be a low maintenance product as there is no need for painting. Additionally, it is not affected by dry rot or insect infestation and can be recycled. Aluminum is more cost effective when compared to composites and traditional wood soffit and fascia.
Composite Soffit and Fascia
Composite soffit and fascia offer new styles and looks compared with traditional products in the past. Composite soffit and fascia is more commonly used on commercial buildings. Composites are manufactured using wood fibers, recycled woods, and other types of substances that are bound together using binding resins to create different styles and looks. These products are still affordable compared to traditional vinyl aluminum. However, they may be affected by dry rot and insect infestation.
That is where cement composite products have made an entry into the marketplace. Cement composites are manufactured in a similar manner as with composite wood soffit and fascia. However, cement and aggregate substances are used instead of wood. Using cement instead of wood allows these products to be resistant to dry rot and insect infestation. Cement composites still allows for a variety of styles and looks while still being an affordable product.
Wood Soffit and Fascia
Wood soffit and fascia is available in many types of wood. Wood soffit and fascia was the product of choice for many years. It is not uncommon to find homes with wood fascia and open soffits where you can see the underside of your roof deck and rafter boards. It is easy to shape, cut and fit. It is recyclable. It has options to be stained or painted. It is susceptible to dry rot and insect infestation. Wood requires regular maintenance. However, with environmental logging restrictions and the introduction of newer manufactured products, and the demand for low maintenance products, wood has seen a negative impact in the marketplace.
