Soffit is usually the same design and color as your home’s siding, but can be different depending on your own personal tastes and preferences.
Soffit can be made from wood, aluminum or vinyl. It’s important that you have a soffit material suitable for the climate you live in. Soffit also helps keep animals and insects out of your home. Bees and wasps love to nestle up in soffit, so you need to keep it maintained to prevent them from invading. It’s important to make sure your soffit has no cracks or holes in it and if it does, you must repair or replace it right away.
Fascia consists of the long straight board along the lower edge of the roof. it’s the last line of support for the lower edge of the bottom row of roof tiles or shingles.
Plus, it’s what your gutters are installed on. Gutters are extremely important and your fascia needs to be able to hold them up even during torrential downpour.
Fascia is also important because it’s visible to everyone. If you want to maximize your home’s curb appeal, your fascia needs to look great as well.
