Soffits and Fascia
Common Causes of Damage to Soffits and Fascia
The soffit and fascia found on most homes throughout our area are designed for more than aesthetic purposes. Clearly, these are features that can impact the curb appeal of the property, and because of this, they can also affect property value when they are in poor condition. However, because they also are important to protecting the structural integrity of the home and to energy efficiency, maintaining them is important. Understanding some of the more common causes of damage to soffit and fascia can be beneficial at helping homeowners to spot the signs of damage. This may also enable you to take steps to prevent the damage from occurring.
One common reason why the soffit and fascia may begin to rot or decay relates to water damage. With some home designs, water may be channeled more heavily across some areas. One way to combat this problem is to install gutters to control the flow of rain water. Another common cause of damage relates to pests. Pests like squirrels, birds and other critters may gnaw at the fascia and soffit in an effort to find a safe haven from the elements. This damage essentially can lead to more damage once the pests invade the home. You can attempt to minimize this risk by keep trees and shrubs trimmed away from the top of the home so that pests have increased difficulty reaching the trim and fascia.

Important finishing touches for your Home
Your home’s soffit and fascia play an important role in protecting against the elements while also enhancing the curb appeal of your property. They work together to close off the outer edge of your rafter tails and outer eves, so they’re protected from water damage, rodents and the elements. Properly installed soffits also serve an important function to maximize attic ventilation to enhance your home’s comfort level while they minimize power bills in the warm summer months.
