Soffit and Fascia Replacement & Repairs in Florida
As you’ve worked to beautify and protect your home’s exterior, you’ve likely spent a great deal of time focused on roofing, siding, windows, and doors. However, as you’re upgrading these elements of your Florida home, make sure you don’t overlook the importance of equipping your residence with proper soffit and fascia. I’m not sure I would have even gone to see it.
Although they may not seem as exciting as other parts of your home’s exterior, your soffit and fascia play a crucial role in making your home look attractive and protecting it from damage. At Morgan Exteriors, we proudly offer soffit and fascia replacement services to ensure these aspects of your home are in optimal condition.
What is Soffit?
Your soffit is essentially siding that goes underneath your roof’s overhang. Although you can’t see it from far away, it certainly is visible when you’re standing close to your home, so you want it to look appealing. Damaged or missing soffit will not only be an eyesore, but also expose your attic to moisture, animals, and insects.
Morgan Exteriors offers both vented and non-vented soffit to suit your needs and budget. Often, if your attic lacks other forms of ventilation, we’ll recommend our vented option, as this is an effective way to promote air circulation and prevent the development of attic mold.
What is Fascia?
Fascia is the board that faces outward directly under your roof’s overhang. It’s what gutters are typically attached to. Fascia is a prominent visual element of your home’s exterior, so you definitely want to have it in good condition for that reason. Damaged fascia also threatens the integrity of your gutter system, if you have gutters on your home.
Why Are Soffit and Fascia Important at Your Home?
Soffit and fascia are both important for your home because soffit will help keep a steady airflow between your roof and attic. Fascia on the other hand acts as the last line of support for the lower edge of the bottom row of roof tiles and shingles. Fascia is also visible everyone so it’s important that it looks great to maintain an aesthetically appealing appearance.
When Should I Replace My Soffit and Fascia?
Soffit and fascia needs to be replaced if you’ve noticed any signs of old age or deterioration such as cracks and flaking paint, evidence of pests, rotted wood, mold, algae, or fungus growth, a miss board, or sagging sections.
Should Soffit and Fascia Match Windows?
If you’re replacing the soffit and fascia at your home you may be wondering if you need to match it to your windows, trim, siding or anything else. However, while many homeowners prefer that it match the window trim it is up to you and your individual preferences.
