The Importance of a Healthy Soffit and Fascia

At Shepherd Roofing & Renovations, we know how important it is to maintain a healthy soffit and fascia.

That’s why we want to remind you of your roof overhang’s crucial role in protecting your home from potential damage.

First, your roof’s soffit is the underside of the overhang; meanwhile, the fascia is the board that covers the ends of the roof rafters.

This section of your roof may not be the most visible part of your home’s exterior, but they are important. They prevent moisture buildup, keep pests out, and avoid costly repairs.

Here are five reasons why having a healthy soffit and fascia are important:

  1. Ventilation: Your soffit allows air to circulate into your attic, preventing moisture buildup and reducing the risk of mold and mildew growth.

  2. Protection against pests: Your fascia helps keep pests like squirrels, birds, and insects from entering your attic and causing damage.

  3. Preventing water damage: A damaged or rotten roof overhang can allow water to seep through your roof. This can lead to wall cracks and water damage inside your house.

  4. Enhancing curb appeal: A well-maintained roof overhang can improve your home’s appearance and increase its value.
