Roofing systems are built with different components that keep them strong. One of these is the soffits, which protect your roof and help keep it in good shape.
What Does a Soffit Do?
Soffits contribute to proper attic ventilation and improve your roof’s lifespan and home’s aesthetics. They come as either solid soffits or vented soffits – each type offering its own advantages. They can also be made from materials like aluminum, wood or vinyl.
Why Should You Install Soffits?
A soffit primarily acts as a passive ventilation unit for your attic by keeping humid air from entering your attic space. When confined in your attic, warm, moist air can cause damage and promote the growth of mold and mildew. With a vented soffit, attic ventilation is significantly improved as it allows continuous airflow in the attic space, preventing moisture buildup and helping regulate your indoor temperature.
Furthermore, soffits also protect the internal components of your roofing system from elements, such as wind, rain, sunlight and pests. Your attic is a primary target for rodents and birds to nest in, and soffits help prevent them from getting inside your home. These pests can wreak havoc in your property as they can munch on wires, cause health hazards with their waste and affect indoor air quality.
Soffits also enhance curb appeal since they cover up roofing components like rafters.
