Two of the lesser known parts of your roof sit at the end of your roof’s overhang, and they are just as important to the life and health of your roof as properly installed sheathing, shingles, and flashing. They are the fascia and soffit. They protect the wood from weather and moisture and can be vinyl and aluminum (which both are maintenance free – never needing paint!).

The fascia is the board that makes up the end of your roof, usually hidden behind your gutters. It ties all your eaves together and is the foundation that your gutters are installed upon. It also works in concert with your soffit to provide ventilation for your attic, which helps keep your home warm in the winter and cool in summer.

The Soffit is the layer of wood, vinyl, or aluminum that extends from the bottom of the fascia to the top piece of your wall board. Depending on the age and construction of your home, it may have actual vents, or gaps in the boards, to provide ventilation for your attic.

Obviously, it is important that both these pieces be in good condition because of the important role they play in your home’s protection from the elements in all four seasons. Because of Colorado’s snow and ice, our gutters and fascia boards regularly take a beating during the winters. Late spring and summer bring thunderstorms, sometimes accompanied by hail, and hot dry weather that can take a toll on your gutters and the fascia boards holding them up.

Warning Signs: Your soffits or fascias may need roof repair services if you see any of these symptoms: leaking gutters, rotting or sagging wood or roof ends, or damp patches appearing on your interior walls. If your home is showing any of these symptoms, call a roofing contractor at Schroeder Roofing today!

  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Improved structural integrity
  • Lengthened lifespan of roof
