What are Soffits and Fascias?

Articles

Soffits and fascias are both components of the roofline of a building. They play important roles in protecting the roof and the interior of the building from the elements.

A soffit is the underside of the eave or roof overhang that extends beyond the walls of the building. Soffits can be ventilated or non-ventilated and are typically made of wood, vinyl, or aluminium. Ventilated soffits allow air to circulate into the roof space, helping to prevent moisture buildup and potential damage to the roof and attic.

A fascia, on the other hand, is the long, straight board that runs along the lower edge of the roof. It is typically made of wood, vinyl, or aluminium and is used to support the bottom row of roof tiles or shingles. Fascias also provide a finished appearance to the roof and help protect the roof and interior of the building from moisture and damage caused by weather.

Together, the soffit and fascia form an important barrier that helps prevent moisture, insects, and animals from entering the roof space and damaging the interior of the building. They also contribute to the overall aesthetic appeal of the building.
