When was the last time you checked your soffits, fascia, siding and gutters?
Soffits, fascia, siding and gutters add important visual interest and give a finished look to your home. But wait – they actually do a lot more than that!
Soffits protect the area underneath a roof’s overhang from weather that could cause the beams to rot and become vulnerable to mold buildup. A vented soffit also lets air circulate in the attic.
A fascia covers and protects the front of a soffit. It serves as a mount for gutters. Moisture can ruin fascia boards that run along a roof line.
Did you know that soffits and fascia also help protect the exterior of your home by keeping bats, squirrels, roaches and other pests out?
Gutters protect the foundation of your home, prevent erosion, and protect your landscaping. Clogged or leaking gutters can cause fascia or siding to rot. You can replace your existing gutters with larger gutters or micromesh covered gutters to prevent overflowing of water caused by debris build up. Do you have gutters above the entry ways to your house? Back splash from rain can cause the deterioration of wood doors and siding.
Even small repairs in these areas can greatly increase the visual appeal of your home AND prevent much costlier renovations later down the road. Reach out to Remedy Roofing today for a free inspection and estimate!
