Fascias and soffits not only provide extra protection for your
home, they add the finishing touch that makes your home look complete.
They give a clean-edged finish while protecting the structure from sun,
rain and snow.
Fascias are the vertical boards that cap the end of the roof rafters
outside the building. They are manufactured from wood, metal such as
aluminium, vinyl or PVC and are usually supplied in preformed lengths
which can be cut to accommodate corners and fit the length of the roof.
PVC is popular because it is a low maintenance material, requiring
little painting or other work to protect it from the elements. PVC is
available in a variety of colours and finishes including woodgrain,
often to match wall cladding and soffits to give your home a
Fascias provide a degree of thermal insulation as well, but
ventilation is important to ensure that ice does not dam up behind them.
This can lead to water seeping into the walls and roof timber, causing
damage that may not be visible for a long time, but will be costly to
Fascias with ventilation holes are available for fitting
periodically along the length of the roof for this purpose.
Soffits, often called eaves, are the finished surface below the
fascia, fitted at a 90 degree angle to the wall, effectively hiding the
rafters overlapping the wall.
Although they are usually installed in the
same colour as the fascias, contrasting colours can create an
interesting effect. Like fascias, soffits are available in different
materials with a variety of finishes.
When fitting soffits, we have
to install a fascia cap that cups the end of the fascia and holds the
outer edge of the soffit in place.
Local building codes specify the amount of ventilation required
when installing fascias and soffits.
These regulations are based on
local conditions and are designed to protect your home from future damp
problems. Proper ventilation also helps lengthen the life of the fascias
and soffits, so it is advisable to follow the building codes.
The same regulations will specify the recommended span of fascias and
soffits. This is the recommended length of each preformed section.
Again, these specifications are related to safety and durability – using
a longer span than recommended is likely to lead to major problems
Fascias and soffits finish off a building, making it look neat and
well-finished. They can add a touch of style and hide unsightly roof
rafters, while offering protection from the elements.
