Understanding Soffits and Fascias

Soffits and fascias are integral to your roofing architecture. Fascias are the boards visible along your roof’s edge, securely fixed to the trusses, and they act as the primary mounting points for your gutter system. Whereas, soffits positioned beneath the fascia boards, play a vital role in ventilating the roof space and the interior of your house. They are pivotal in preventing moisture buildup by promoting adequate airflow, thereby aiding in the reduction of attic and under-roof humidity levels. This ventilation is essential for maintaining the structural integrity of your roof and for preventing issues related to excessive moisture, such as mold and wood rot.
