Soffits and fascias are essential in protecting your home, particularly your roofing, against different types of damage. Whether you are constructing a new home or remodeling your property, installing the right types of soffits and fascias can make a big difference.
Woodbridge Home Exteriors, a trusted provider of energy-efficient windows, shares a few tips on choosing soffits and fascias.
You have several options when it comes to soffit material. Make sure to weigh their pros and cons so that you can ensure the best fit for your home.
- Metal soffit boards – Steel and aluminum are both good options because they are non-flammable and durable. Aluminum, however, does not degrade like steel, making it easier to maintain.
- Synthetic soffit boards – This typically includes vinyl soffits, which are durable and low-maintenance. Vinyl soffit installations are also water-resistant, and they come in various colors and textures.
- Natural materials – Wood soffits are timeless and depending on the rest of your roofing system, wood can actually be an easy material to work with. Much like replacement windows, wood soffits can be treated so that it won’t rot easily.
Different types of fascias are available on the market: square, bullnose, ogee, flat, and cap-over (also known as reveal liners). If you are planning a full fascia replacement, make sure that the boards are thick enough to secure the nail directly to the rafters and hold gutters. Additionally, ensure that you are getting the correct size of fascia boards. Measuring your existing fascia board can help you with this.
