Soffit and Fascia
Soffit & Fascia Repair
Soffit and fascia is a crucial component for creating a barrier between your roof system and your attic. These boards not only provide reinforced protection for your attic from hazards like animals and water, but your soffit board provides a base for your gutter system. When your soffit or fascia is damaged, it can not only let water into your attic but it can also cause your gutter system to fail. Your soffit and fascia choices vary greatly and are available in vinyl, wood, and aluminum options.
Aluminum is a top choice for a home’s soffit and fascia boards because it is extremely durable and eco-friendly. This material provides unbeatable protection from UV rays that can drive up energy costs and presents unrivaled protection against fire.
As the most affordable soffit and fascia option, vinyl boards present benefits like resistance to impacts and low maintenance. These customizable options are highly durable and won’t fade or peel like some other materials and are available in multiple colors, textures, and styles for a look that’s all your own. They are also capable of lasting up to 10 years with little maintenance required.
Soffit and fascia boards that are made from wood are the most aesthetically pleasing options, in most cases. These boards are extremely durable and resist denting, warping, and cracking. They are also extremely eco-friendly and completely recyclable for. However, wood soffit and fascia need more upkeep than most selections and should be maintained regularly for optimal life.
Your roof’s flashing protects the seams and joints of your roof. Roof flashing is available in aluminum, steel, and copper options for your convenience and can come prefabricated or be created onsite. Typically, galvanized steel flashing is used in professional installations because of the incredible durability that comes with the material. Aluminum can also be used to create flashing and is known for being lightweight and comparatively malleable for unique fittings. Copper flashing is sometimes used to present a look of elegance while offering unrivaled protection. However, this material is quite costly.
Signs of Flashing Damage
Through the years, your flashing can come into contact with weather, impact, or other hazards that can cause damage within your system. These damages can lead to problems in your attic, water leaks, and roof damage, and should be repaired as soon as possible.
Small Holes: When oxidation and weathering occur, your flashing could be left with tiny pinholes that are just large enough to let water pass.
Rust and Corrosion: Although modern metal is pretreated to combat these problems, they may still occur over time. These problems can be identified by the off-color they turn the metal to.
Missing Pieces: Whether from animals, torrential rain, or another event, sometimes your flashing can disappear altogether. Missing flashing pieces leave your roof’s joints exposed and susceptible to the effects of weather and rain and should be replaced immediately.
Dents, Cracks, or Bends: Just like other areas of your home, flashing can take quite a beating during rough storms and high winds. Dents, cracks, and other blemishes in your flashing indicate areas where water can seep inside causing serious damages. Pieces that are cracked or bent should be replaced to prevent water leaks.
