A home’s roof overhangs the house slightly to add a layer of protection from the elements when it rains or snows. Underneath this overhang, most homes have a fascia and soffit system. These boards keep pests out while providing weather protection and ventilation. From time to time, they may need servicing from a professional roofer.

Graphic explaining what a Fascia and Soffit are

A home’s fascia is the board that runs along the roof line perpendicular to the ground. This outward-facing board is also where the gutters attach.Fascia boards are part of the home’s curb appeal. The fascia also supports the roof’s lower edge and the shingles it holds.

The soffit is the board that covers the gap between the home’s exterior wall and the fascia on the roof.

In addition to protecting from moisture and insects, the soffit has ventilation to steady airflow between the roof and attic.[1] This airflow can prevent the buildup of ice dams in the winter.[2]

Soffit and Fascia Installations

The soffit and fascia are vital in protecting your home and ensuring the gutter system works as it should. They also finish the house, provide ventilation, and protect the roof and attic from pests and moisture. Proper soffit installation is essential when installing a new roof or gutter system. You need professional installation services to create a waterproof, pest-proof system that will fully protect your home. Ferguson Roofing can help. Our St. Louis roofing professionals can install the proper soffit and fascia systems to protect your home and maintain its overall look.

Signs You Need a Repair

Some signs you need soffit and fascia repair include:

  • Water stains: The soffit and fascia are important in protecting the roof and attic from moisture. If you see water staining on either the soffit or fascia, it indicates that water has found its way inside this area, which can lead to costly damage.
  • Paint chipping: Some paint chipping and peeling is typical on a home’s soffit and fascia. Still, significant amounts are more than just a cosmetic issue. This indicates you must repair the soffit and fascia to protect its watertight seal.
  • Pests: If pests have gotten into the cracks and gaps in the soffit, they can create significant damage. Repairing the roof line is essential to prevent infestation.
  • Sagging, dropping, or swelling of the soffit: A soffit should be level and smooth. If it’s not, there may be underlying water damage. This can also indicate poor installation.
  • Rising energy bills: When the soffit or fascia are damaged, the insulation and ventilation of your home’s attic suffer. This can cause increased energy bills by forcing the HVAC to work harder than it should.

If you notice these issues, call the team at Ferguson Roofing to have your fascia and soffit inspected and repaired.

Might be Time to Replace Your Soffit or Fascia or Both!

While the team at Ferguson can repair many issues with the soffit and fascia in your St. Louis home, sometimes the most cost-effective solution is replacement. For some roofs, new soffit and fascia installation and design can improve the home’s energy efficiency.[3] You should consider replacing the soffit or fascia boards instead of a repair if you’re noticing:

  • Holes in the fascia or soffit
  • Rotting wood
  • Leaking water
  • Suspicion of asbestos
  • Increased energy bills

Sometimes, deciding between repair and replacement is difficult. The roofing professionals at Ferguson will help you decide which option is best for your home.
