What are Soffits?
Soffits are the under-part of the overhang that covers the gap between the exterior wall and the projecting edge of the roofline, this area is most commonly referred to as the eaves. Soffits are installed on the underside of the eaves and together they help rain, snow and ice slide down the roof, removing excess water into the roofing gutters to keep your roof free from water build up, which in turn helps prevents leaks, mould and damage.
Soffits also allow your roof to “breathe.” Cool, fresh air flows into the soffit vent, and hot, moist air flows out.
Both Fascias and Soffits tend to be made from the same material, with PVCu being one of the most popular materials on the market today. Both soffits and fascias play key roles in protecting the roof and the structure of the building.
