What is Soffit?
Kanga Roof works on all areas of the roof to ensure it is working properly. The soffit and fascia are a common area that is overlooked frequently. The soffit is the exposed surface beneath the overhanging section of the roof eave. The soffit will ventilate the attic and aids in proper air circulation throughout the home. The air from the soffit cycles to the vents will draw heat and moisture away from your home, preventing serious issues with moisture. If moisture is in the attic, it can lead to problems with mold growth. Water can cause damage to the attic, which can cause damage to insulation, rafters, and drywall. Rot damage can cost a homeowner thousands of dollars in repairs.
A soffit features a plain design with small holes that are designed to bring about air circulation. The air from the soffit cycles to the vents will draw heat and moisture out and away from the home. Without working soffits, your homes roofing system is at risk of developing rot. Unkempt gutters are another common problem that can lead to soffit damage.
What is Fascia Board?
When roofing a home, soffit and fascia board is a common area that is replaced if it has become damaged. The fascia has a vertical finishing edge that is connected to the ends of the rafters or trusses. The area where the gutter is attached to the home is exposed to a lot of water, especially in Utah where we deal with wet conditions at least 107 days out of the year. The fascia will protect the layer from the edge of the root and the gutter to keep the fascia board from becoming damaged. Soffit and fascia plays an important role in the aesthetic appeal of the home as it gives the home a finishing touch.
