Soffit and Fascia
First let’s answer the questions; What is a soffit? What is a fascia? The soffit is the surface under the overhanging segment of a roof eave. The purpose of a soffit is to aide in the ventilation of the attic.
The air from the soffit rotates around the vents in order to pull heat and moisture away from the home. The function of the soffit prevents moisture build-up in the attic that can develop rot in the sheathing and rafters.
The fascia is a vertical border linked to the ends of the rafters, or the area where the gutter is connected to the roof. The key function of the fascia is to protect the wooden board against water damage that can occur over time with the many seasonal weather changes.
