Soffit and Fascia
Fascia and soffit are two of the most important parts of your roof’s ventilation system, but they tend to suffer from a myriad of damage over the years. Ignoring this damage is a problem, because Soffit and Fascia offers your home multiple benefits that you can’t ignore.
Protects Your Home From Stinging Insects
When you install fascia and soffit onto your roof, you are creating a barrier that stinging insects like bees and wasps cannot cross. For example, fascia helps keep your gutters from moving away from your roof and offering an entrance for stinging insects, while soffit helps promote airflow that breaks apart any budding nests. As a result, stinging insects will be unable to make hives and nests under your eaves, keeping your home free of these dangerous pests.
Prevents Mold Growth
Your roof is a perfect breeding ground for mold, but well-maintained Soffit and Fascia can prevent mold from growing on your roof and, potentially, into your home. Fascia prevents holes and other damage from impacting your gutters, allowing them to move mold-birthing still water. Meanwhile, the airflow promoted by soffit will keep your roof and attic well ventilated, preventing mold growth.
Boosts Your Home’s Value
New or well-maintained Soffit and Fascia is often considered one of the best ways to increase the value of your home. Home evaporators understand the importance of these items and will vary your price accordingly based on their condition. So if you’re interested in selling your home, make sure to keep them in great condition.
With all these benefits – and these were just a small sample – of good Soffit and Fascia, it’s hard not to justify investing in improving and repairing them whenever possible. So don’t be afraid to spend a little money to make your home look great.
