Just like your roof and siding material, windows and doors, and many other components of your exteriors, there are choices when it comes to soffit and fascia boards. Whether you’re replacing them or you’re having a new home constructed, such components deserve your attention so you can decide which styles match yours.
Choosing your soffit and fascia boards shouldn’t be difficult, though. Here are some tips:
Don’t Forget About Airflow
The type of soffits and fascias you choose has an effect on the aesthetics of your home. Without them, your roof would be incomplete, and it would look untidy. Soffit and fascia boards also protect your roof’s hollow space from intrusion.
However, remember also that without enough ventilation through your soffits, warm air will be trapped in the hollow space of your roof, causing damage. Work with a roof and siding repair and replacement professional to make sure your soffits and fascia don’t block airflow.
Choose the Right Material
There are different materials for making soffits and fascias. Metal options include aluminum and steel; synthetics include vinyl and fiber cement; natural materials include wood. All of these materials have certain benefits over the others, but they also have some limitations. It’s best to talk to your contractor so you can choose the best material for your needs.
As different homes have different needs when it comes to components like soffits and fascias, you shouldn’t be hesitant to customize your own. However, this is not a DIY project. Don’t risk designing your own soffit and fascia boards just to realize they’re a poor fit. It’s always best to get in touch with a professional roofer.
