Some common siding terms...
The soffit is designed to provide attic ventilation and water shedding from exterior walls. Technically, a soffit is the underside of any element of a building. The most common soffit is found in the area under the eaves on the exterior of the house. The soffit extends from the side of the house to the edge of the eave and closes the space beneath the eave.
The soffit is more vulnerable to weather damage than any other part of the house. Wet material rots and a soffit can be repeatedly soaked by water from torn shingles, damaged or rusted flashing, ice dams, or poorly functioning gutters.
Squirrels, birds and wood drilling insects can also damage soffits since they like to nest in the space behind soffits when they can find a point of entry. Bees, hornets, and wasps do not actually damage a soffit, but when they build a nest behind a soffit, they present a problem for the homeowners.
Fascia is used in conjunction with soffits for added aesthetics and is also needed for the installation of gutters. Fascia is the band running horizontally and situated vertically under a roof edge. It is mounted on the exposed ends of rafters or the top of exterior walls to create a layer between the edge of the roof and the outside. In addition to serving an aesthetic function by creating a smooth, even appearance on the edge of the roof, fascia boards also protects the roof and the interior of the house from weather damage. Not all styles of home design feature fascia boards.
In cases where the edge of the roof is flush with the edge of the walls, the fascia board may include soffits for venting, while in other instances, soffits may be hidden under the eave, invisible behind the fascia board. The fascia board also provides a point of attachment for the gutters of the house, along with the drain pipes, facilitating drainage from the roof and ensuring that water does not pool around the house during the rainy season. Fascia comes in a wide variety of materials to match your homes exciting template.
