How to Tell Your Home Needs Soffit & Fascia Repairs

As most homeowners can attest, having quality soffit and fascia installed on your home is essential. Both play instrumental roles in protecting your roof and regulating the temperature of your home.

Generally, newer houses have maintenance-free soffit and fascia because they’re made from the same material as your siding or trim. Unfortunately, “maintenance free” doesn’t mean immortal. Anything from weather exposure and pests to poor installation can create significant damage long term.

Luckily for you, our experts at Budget Exteriors offer excellent soffit and fascia repair and installation services.

What Are Soffit & Fascia?

If you’re new to being a homeowner, you might find yourself asking, “what are soffit and fascia?”— which is an excellent question!

The soffit is the material under the eave that provides ventilation and connects your roof and siding.

The fascia sits behind the gutters at the edge of the roof and helps prevent water-related issues that may affect your interior.

How to Tell When Your Home Needs Soffit & Fascia Repairs

Most experts suggest getting into the habit of checking your soffit and fascia once or twice a year while inspecting the gutter. This is especially important for those who live in areas with harsh weather conditions.

Minnesota homeowners are no strangers to how storms and frigid winters affect their houses exteriors. Ice dams in particular can have a negative impact on your soffit and fascia.

Some indications of damage to keep an eye on include:

●        Cracks

●        Mold

●        Rotted wood

●        Sagging or missing boards

●        Bite marks from various animals

●        Chipped paint

If you only spot a few damaged areas, it’s possible that your home only needs a patch job. However, extensive wear and tear might require a soffit and fascia installation.

Having quality, intact soffit and fascia is crucial in protecting the integrity of your roof and gutters while keeping your home safe from rodents and heavy rainfall.

Essentially, by ensuring your soffit and fascia are in excellent condition, you’re helping to maintain your home’s structural integrity (and saving yourself from roof repair headaches and bills along the way!).
