Soffit and fascia are crucial to your home’s protection against damage and energy efficiency. However, like most of your house’s components, they wear over time. With all the styles, colors, and sizes to choose from, it can be difficult to choose when it’s time to get replacements.
Choose the best soffit and fascia for your home with these helpful tips from a trusted roofing and siding contractor.
Select Among Three Types of Soffit
The three main types of soffit boards are solid soffit, pre-ventilated soffit, and hollow soffit. The solid soffit is the most popular one as it’s easy to install. This type of soffit must be installed over the fascia or soffit disc vents. Prevented soffit boards have pre-drilled ventilation holes, allowing for air circulation. Moreover, hollow soffit boards are ideal for wide soffit applications.
Decide Which Material to Choose
When selecting your new soffit and fascia, you should choose the same material as your siding. Usually, your manufacturer or siding contractor can recommend the ideal material for your home. The most popular materials include metal, vinyl, and natural wood.
Know Your Customization Options
It helps to do your research about which color of soffit and fascia would complement your home. You should also consider colors that work well with your roof and siding. White is the most preferred color of these components but you can also go for other colors. There are even styles of soffit and fascia that resemble the appearance of natural wood, giving your home a more unique look.
