Soffits and fascia play a crucial role in protecting your home and reducing the impact of sun, wind and rain. Because they’re available in a variety of colors, soffits and fascia also give you the opportunity to accent and beautify your home’s exterior. Let’s take a closer look at these New Jersey roofing components.
• Soffits. Soffits are located under the eaves of a house and act as an air intake for the attic space. Homeowners may not be aware that the soffit is vulnerable to water damage caused by torn shingles, poorly functioning gutters, ice dams, and even damage from birds and squirrels that nest behind it. There are different kinds of soffits, such as solid, center-vented and fully vented. The soffits Up and Above installs are fully vented to help your roof breathe. And they’re entirely maintenance-free – no painting needed!
• Fascia boards. The fascia is the flat, continuous piece of trim molding that runs perpendicular to a ceiling soffit, protecting the wood beneath from moisture and the sun’s UV rays. Sometimes fascia boards need to be replaced due to weathering, or over time they may pull away from the gutters. Like soffits, they’re also subject to damage from animals and pests. Up and Above works with high-quality PVC-coated or smooth fascia boards for long-lasting protection. Plus, our fascia boards come in more than 50 colors!
