Soffit is the exposed siding underneath your roof’s overhang. Soffit is generally not visible unless you are close to or underneath your home. Soffit can be the same design and color as your home’s siding, but it can also be different depending on your own personal tastes and preferences.
Soffit is important to your home because it has venting that helps keep a steady airflow between your roof and attic. Your attic needs to be well ventilated or else moisture can build up, causing mold formation. Aside from keeping moisture out, soffit helps release heat from your attic during the hot summer months. Soffit also helps keep animals and insects out of your home.
Fascia goes hand-in-hand with your home’s soffit. Fascia is the area of siding directly above the soffit. It’s the exposed board you see on the front of your roof’s overhang. Your fascia is also where gutters are placed.
Fascia is the last line of support for the lower edge of the bottom row of roof tiles or shingles. Plus, it’s what your gutters are installed on. Gutters are extremely important and your fascia needs to be able to hold them up during torrential downpour.
