Fascia boards and soffits are important external features of your home. Well-maintained soffit and fascia keep your home’s exterior looking neat and tidy, but their purpose is much more than aesthetic. These components are another line of defense against the elements.
Fascia boards are flat panels of wood, aluminum or PVC that Pittsburgh roofing contractors nail vertically along the end of rafters at the roof’s edge. In addition to protecting the rafters from exposure, fascia also provides support for the gutter system.
Soffits are fitted horizontally along the underside of overhanging eaves. Typically made of painted wood, vinyl or aluminum, their primary jobs are to keep birds and critters out of the attic, and to allow air to circulate in the attic space. A properly vented soffit area ensures your roofing in Pittsburgh won’t become damaged by ice dams and condensation in the winter, and extreme heat in the summer.
