Soffits and eavestroughs come in a variety of materials and colours in order to suit the look and material of your home. With the right selection, your soffits and eavestrough can become a charming addition to the exterior of your home.
What is a soffit?
Soffits provide a practical purpose to your home as well as a finished look. A soffit attaches to the outside walls of the home, extending to the fascia boards, covering the undersides of the eves. When the soffits are completed with vents they allow for regular airflow, removing heat from the attic and preventing moisture build up.
Why are soffits important?
Removing excess heat is very important as it drastically reduces the chance of mold, mildew, and a rotted structure, escaping costly mold remediation and repair costs. Removing unnecessary heat will ensure less energy is required to cool your home therefore, reducing your monthly utility bill. Additional to the practical purpose, soffits provide an overall appeal and finished look to the roof rafter and patios, while serving as an outdoor ceiling.
What is an eavestrough?
In the wet weather, an eavestrough acts as a rain gutter – collecting and carrying water away from the roof, releasing it at a distance from the foundation and preventing damage.
