Roof soffits may be often overlooked (unless you look up just outside your door), but this doesn’t make them any less important. In fact, they offer many distinct advantages when you have them installed.
1. Improve your home’s aesthetics: The term “soffit” is derived from the French word “soffite”, which means “formed as a ceiling”. And, that’s exactly what soffits do. They serve as a skin that covers the eaves and rafters, giving your home a neat and finished look. Soffits are also available in different styles, colors and materials, making it easy for you to choose which ones can complement your home.
2. Help extend your roof’s life: There are vented soffits available that allow for smooth and efficient airflow through the vents and the attic. When there’s enough air circulating throughout your attic, there’s less chance of excess heat and moisture buildup in the space. This means heat won’t rise up and bake the shingles above, leading to premature aging. With vented soffits in place, you’re sure your roofing system can provide the lasting performance you expect.
3. Prevent mold growth and rot: Roof soffits protect your rafters from the harsh elements. Without them, the rafters will be exposed to water and moisture, running the risk of mold growth and rot in the beams. These can weaken your home’s structure while leaving you vulnerable to health issues associated with mold.
Soffits offer a simple and effective way to protect the roof structure and expel warm, moisture-laden air from your attic space. Not only that, they can also make a big difference to your home’s look. But when your existing soffits have become irreparably damaged, you only need to turn to Crown Roofing LTD.
