What Are Soffits and Fascia?
Soffits are typically made out of a variety of materials, including wood, vinyl, aluminum, and fiber cement and are located under the eaves of your roof. Soffits keep moisture out of your rafters, reducing the growth rate of mildew and mold in your home. Usually, a home’s soffits are made of vinyl, as the material is water-resistant and easy to customize.
Your home’s fascia, also called the roofline, is a board that roofers mount to where the exterior walls and the roof join. Fascia prevents animals from entering your home through this gap, providing a sturdy joining point for your gutters.
If you need your soffit and fascia repaired, it’s important to act quickly to prevent further damage to your home. Gotcha Covered Contracting provides outstanding soffit and fascia repair in Pittsburgh, and the surrounding cities. Let us provide you with a free inspection and estimate.
Prevent Water Damage From Failing Soffit & Fascia Boards
Water damage is devastating to any home, and it’s always better to prevent it from occurring than to repair it after it happens. Keeping your soffits and fascia boards in good condition is one of the best ways to reduce the risk of water entering your home.
Your soffit and fascia are also key to preventing animals from gaining access to your home. As your soffits and fascia pull away from each other, they leave a gap through which animals can gain access. If you don’t want your home to become a veritable hotel for rats, raccoons, bats, and other animals who are supposed to live outdoors, keep its structural elements in good condition.
Signs Your Home Needs a Soffit or Fascia Repair
As a soffit ages, it can begin to pull away from the fascia board. You may notice this during or after a heavy rainstorm or while cleaning your gutters. Leaving this gap in place causes water to run into the soffit and your home. Your home’s foundation may even suffer long-term damage, requiring costly repair.
If you are experiencing any of the following conditions, give us a call as soon as possible:
- Water spots on your interior walls
- Water leaking behind your gutters
- Overflowing or seemingly clogged gutters
- Leaky gutters
- Sagging or rotting wood near your eaves
You should also regularly inspect your attic and the other areas where your roof joins with exterior walls. If they show any signs of water damage, such as mold, mildew, or sagging, hire a professional to inspect the area further.
Clearing your gutters and downspouts of dead leaves, ice, and other debris can help extend the life of your soffits and fascia, as these clogs are some of the leading causes of damage to your home. If you don’t want to take care of this yourself, we also offer gutter cleaning and leaf control systems in the Pittsburgh area.
How Much Will Your Soffit and Fascia Repair Cost?
The cost of repairing your soffit and fascia will vary based on the size of your home and the extent of the damage. However, finding and repairing damage early will always be more cost-effective than fixing the water damage that results from neglecting these elements of your roof.
Because every home is unique, we will need to visit your home and inspect your roof before we can give you a price quote. However, we offer free inspections and estimates for all our work at Gotcha Covered Contracting, so you know that you won’t be in the hole before the work begins.
