What Is the Soffit and How Does It Work?

A soffit is a device installed underneath the eaves of the roof of your home. It functions to allow fresh air to get into your residential roof. They act as vents that you can see underside the eaves and they create a continuous flow of fresh air throughout the roof and attic of your home in New Orleans. When there is proper ventilation and circulation of air, your home is protected from unwanted moisture that welcomes the growth of molds and other roof-damaging particles.

Common Soffit and Fascia Board Issues At Your Home

The soffit and fascia of your home can wear out over time. They can also be damaged easily when they do not undergo regular maintenance or have not been installed properly. Any damage to soffits can cost you money. It is important that you are familiar with the common soffit and fascia issues of your home so that you will know how to detect them early on. Soffit issues can cost a big amount of money when they are not dealt with immediately.

Common damage and issues on soffits and fascias of your home include:

  • Improper Installation

When your soffit and fascia were installed DIY, the most common cause of damage is improper installation. It is crucial that when you want your soffit to function at its prime, hire a professional soffit installation team. It may cost you more in the beginning but will be more cost-effective in the long run. Professional roofers have complete roofing services that include replacement, repairs, and maintenance of every home roofing element.

An improperly installed soffit can cause a host of problems that can cost you more money. When soffits are not placed properly and correctly, they can be very prone to wind and hail damage. When they are not installed with proper spacing, they may not function well enough to ventilate your home.

  • Animal and Insect Intrusions

Birds and insects can easily establish their homes in the soffit and on the fascia boards of your home. They have easy access to these parts of your roof and like to stay in the spaces between the eaves of the soffits. When they start staying in your soffits, they can move further inside your attic.

You can call us anytime to check on your soffits if there are small holes or cracks caused by animal and insect intrusions. We have a great team who can come to seal up any cracks or holes. Our roofing services include dealing with these damages on soffits and fascias.

  • Moisture Damage

Damaged SoffitSoffits and fascias made with wood can be prone to moisture damage. Since soffits are part of your home’s exterior and are exposed to heavy rain and snow, they can be damaged by moisture. Water infiltration is another cause of moisture damage on soffits and fascias. You should be looking at your soffits regularly to check for signs of moisture damage like blisters and cracks.

Call us to deal with these issues. We can repaint your soffits and replace them if they have been damaged too much. Remember that moisture damage soffits can wear out easily and compromise the entire structural integrity of your roofing system. We offer roofing services that include soffit maintenance to prevent water and moisture from damaging your soffit.

  • Dry Rot

Dry rot is caused by fungus contrary to the belief that it is caused by water infiltration or moisture.  When a certain type of fungus thrives on the wood fibers of your soffit, your soffit can fall apart easily.  Call us when you notice pieces of your soffit falling apart because this is a clear sign of dry rot damage.

They live up to their word too!
