Sometimes when you hear certain words that you may not be sure of their meaning, it’s easy to think that they relate to something completely different than what you had in mind. It’s safe to say that ‘soffits’ and ‘fascia’ definitely fit into this category for many people.
So, what are soffits and fascia exactly?
“These architectural elements found along the eave area do more than just add visual interest and give a finished look to your home. They help protect the exterior of your house by keeping out pests like bats, birds and squirrels, and give you a way to disguise ventilation for your attic.
While soffits and fascia are traditionally constructed from materials like aluminum and wood, many homeowners are now choosing ones made from synthetic and composite materials like UPVC and vinyl because they offer easy maintenance and durability. Vinyl soffits (some are beaded or smooth, while others offer the look of wood grain) and vinyl fascia and trim products come in different styles to complement the architecture and look of your home.
Making sure your soffit and fascia are installed correctly and properly waterproofed is the best way to prevent problems down the road.” (Jeannie Matteuci, hgtv.com)
