Soffit & Fascia – Elmhurst, IL.
Serving Addison, Bensenville, Villa Park, Lombard, Franklin Park, Oak Brook & The Western Suburbs
Your home’s gutter system relies on a soffit & fascia board for stabilization. The fascia board, which runs vertical at the roof’s ends, covers the openings between your attic rafters. The soffit extends from the bottom of the fascia board to the top of the wallboard, covering your attic’s ventilation system and adding visual appeal to the exterior of your home. When either the fascia or soffit become damaged or rotted, they should be immediately replaced. If you do not address soffit & fascia damage quickly, your home will be exposed to water damage & other major issues. Durabuilt Home Improvements, Inc. can handle your soffit or fascia replacement, we have over 20 years of experience.
What Is Soffit?
Soffit lies beneath your roof's overhang and serves both a functional and an aesthetic purpose. It can be made of any type of material, such as wood or fiber cement. It protects the underside of your roof overhang from the elements and usually boasts a design to enhance the outside of your home. Soffit also has venting that helps to promote good airflow between your roof and attic. This helps prevent mold growth.
What Is Fascia?
Fascia is the area of your home that is directly above the soffit. It is what you see on the front of your overhang. Fascia helps to support the lower edge of the last row of your roofing materials, and it is the area where your gutters are installed.
Benefits of Soffit & Fascia
- The benefits of functioning soffit and fascia include:
- Stabilizes your gutter system
- Protects your home from pests’ potentially nesting in your attic
- Prevents water from entering your home
- Keeps your home cooler
- Disguises your attic’s ventilation system
If the fascia board was not properly installed, or has deteriorated over time, it can become rotted from water running between the board and the gutter. And when soffit deteriorates, it can let water into your home’s interior, causing damage and mold. Whether you would like to install fascia and soffit on an older home or replace your current system.
