Proper installation of soffits, fascia, and eaves complete the appearance of your home's exterior and protect the underlying structure.
SOFFITS PLAY A VITAL ROLE IN ENSURING A POSITIVE AIRFLOW THROUGH THE ATTIC SPACE.
Vented soffit systems allow for ventilation from the soffit through to the attic ventilation system in a roof. By maintaining proper airflow through the attic system, condensation is kept at minimum, reducing buildup of ice along the eaves.
This increases the life expectancy of a roof system. Most soffit systems are comprised of either vented or un-vented aluminum. In some instances soffit systems comprised of composite metals or wood can be installed on a home.
FASCIA PROVIDES PROTECTION TO THE UNDERLYING WOOD FASCIA OF YOUR HOME’S STRUCTURE AND FORMS A TRANSITION FROM ROOF DECK TO SOFFIT IN A VISUALLY PLEASING WAY.
The word fascia derives from Latin, meaning band, bandage, ribbon, and swathe. The term is also used, although less commonly, for other such band-like surfaces like a wide, flat trim strip around a doorway that is different and separate from the wall surface.
The horizontal ‘fascia board’ which caps the end of rafters outside a building may be used to hold the rain gutter. The finished surface below the fascia and rafters is called the soffit or eave. In standard 10 foot lengths of aluminum, fascia’s pre-painted baked enamel allows for a finishing that withstands exposure to the elements.
YOUR EAVES AND EAVESTROUGH SYSTEM IS ESSENTIAL FOR PROPER DRAINAGE OF RAINWATER, CARRYING IT AWAY FROM YOUR HOME’S FOUNDATION.
Ensuring that there are an adequate number of downspouts will result in a longer lasting eavestrough system and will ensure that water is channeled away from a home’s foundation. Standard eavestrough systems are constructed in 5″ continuous aluminum lengths, are pre-painted baked enamel, and are fabricated to suit the eave perimeter.
By installing a continuous system, joints are eliminated on the lengths of the eavestrough with joints only at the corners. This minimizes potential leak sources that result from debris, and expansion and contraction of the eavestrough. For some applications, a 6″ eavestrough system can be installed for situations with a higher than normal level of water runoff.
