Over time most homes will end up dealing with regular wear and tear that can decrease the value of your home. Have you noticed the soffits and fascia of your home has become damaged? The gutters can become clogged over the years, which can lead to damage of the soffits and fascia as water rolls over them and insects begin to build homes there, causing additional damage to the framework. Soffit and fascia play a critical role in the overall well-being of your home. Without the soffit and fascia system intact, it can end up leading to problems related to the ventilation of your home.
What is a Soffit?
The fascia board is responsible for closing the ends of the rafters on the outside of a home or building. While it may look aesthetically designed, it is created to support the gutter system, allowing water to run off the roof and out and away from the home. The fascia will extend from the roof edge and goes down about six inches to meet the soffit system. Soffits will run from the bottom of the fascia to the top piece to the wall.
It is common to see early warning signs of problems with soffit and fascia when you notice they are sagging, or the gutters start to leak and water runs down the soffits and fascia. Unlimited Siding provides soffit and fascia repair services in Ogden, UT, and surrounding areas. Our goal is to prevent water from damaging the interior of your home, and only a properly installed drainage system will be able to allow this to occur.
Why You Need Soffit Repair
There are a number of reasons to consider using professionals for soffit and fascia repair.
