What You Should Know About the Soffit and Fascia
The soffit is the exposed area beneath the overhanging segment of the roof eave. It contains with small holes that provide air circulation for the rafters and roof sheathing. The soffit prevents wind-driven rain from reaching the rafters, eliminating the potential of rot and mold growth.
The fascia board is the vertical finishing edge of the roof. It protects the entire roof and your home’s interior from weather damage by acting as a barrier. The fascia prevents pests from accessing the space between the rafters and settling inside the roof. The soffit and fascia, like the siding and roofing shingles, are visible from the curb and thus have an aesthetic role as well.
