Many people don’t realise the importance of maintaining the soffit & fascia elements that support your roof and keep it in good working condition. Regular roof maintenance will help minimise damage and maximise the lifespan of your entire roof. At Clear Reach, we can clean out your roof fascia board, or roof fascia and soffit. This is essentially the supportive structure that bears the weight of your metal roof gutters.
What is Soffit & Fascia anyway?
Your house fascia sits vertically, visible to the eye just underneath the edge of the roof. The soffit sits horizontal to the ground and is the underboard of the fascia – usually ventilated to reduce condensation building up in your roof, which could cause your timber to rot. Often people refer to them as just ‘eaves’ instead of the soffit. But this term is more general referring to many components on the underside of the roof.
Restoring and reviving the fascia benefits:
- Prevent water damage to the roof
- Minimise nesting areas for birds, insects and pests
- Prevent moisture damage to walls and foundation
- Prevent damage to gutters, Facias and soffits
- Aesthetically pleasing
- Save money on repair bills
