El Paso Roofing Tip of the Month: A Quick Guide on Soffits and Fascia

Soffits and fascia are the finishing touches found on the end of our roof. It covers the edge of our trusses or roof rafter. Fascia refers to that wide board that is introduced on the edge and it extends horizontally throughout the end of the roof. The top section of the fascia will be attached on the shingles while the outside section is used to mount the gutter. Soffit, on the other hand, is a flat section which is found alongside the rafter. Both components prevent the critters and bugs from accessing our attic.

Construction Details of Soffits and Fascia

The average type of house will be equipped with a fascia that runs horizontally throughout the eaves. Even those homes that come with gable roof will also feature a fascia that extends to the gable edge. The soffit can appear once the roof extends the wall at about a couple of inches.

Installation of Fascia

During the construction of the house, the fascia board will be fastened at the edge of rafter. This will be completed before the gutter and the roofing system will be installed. It will not be uncommon to see two fascia boards. They may come with different or the same width. In some cases, the fascia will be installed on a framing lumber known as subfascia.

Installation of Soffit

The soffit will first be cut in order to fit the fascia and the wall. It will be attached through the lookout or the rafter tail. The panel of the soffit can then be followed by molding or the rafter tail that are found alongside the house walls or fascia. For the non-wood type of soffit, they will be fastened on the J-channel that are placed along the wall.

Soffit and Fascia Materials

Generally, fascia is manufactured using a board material with a dimension of 1x6, 1x8, or 1x10. The board can be made from solid lumber such as redwood, cedar, and pine. The material is made to complement the appearance of your siding. Sometimes, fascia can also be created from man-made product or engineered wood like wood composite, vinyl, fiber cement, and Masonite. It can also be coated with aluminum and vinyl.

The traditional type of soffit has a thickness of 3 8ths inch or half an inch exterior plywood in cedar or pine. It is also common to find a soffit made from fiberboard and Masonite, but they are expectedly less durable. If you prefer a material that is more weather resistant, then a fiber cement would be a good option. Perhaps the most popular material for soffit would be aluminum and vinyl since they only require simple maintenance.

Some of the biggest issues related with fascia and soffit would be peeled paint, warping and rotting. Once you notice the signs of these problems, let the roofers handle the repairs. Roof repairs are always associated with hazards. Avoid injuries and accidents by letting the professionals deal with your roofing problems. They can determine the real cause of the problem and apply the appropriate fix.
