What is a fascia?
Fascia is the flat horizontal band that goes around the edge of your roof. This board prohibits the whole roof from being subjected to water damage from weather, and it is also what the soffit and the eavestrough or gutter is attached.
What is a soffit?
Soffit is the name for the perforated underside of the eaves. Soffit is a part of the gutter system, arguably one of the most important aspects, that assists in functions such as air circulation and keeping moisture away from the house, and provides air ventilation to keep moisture out of the roof and is the best way how to vent an attic.
Why is Soffit and Fascia Important to a roof?
Soffit and fascia are vital for improved circulation for the eaves and attic, and they also add a great polished look to your home. Soffits and fascia are the part of a roof’s structure closest to the gutters. These are the first line of defence when it comes to water damage coming from a clogged gutter.
