Soffit and fascia play an important role in the structural integrity of your home. Properly installed soffit provides essential ventilation and air circulation to reduce excess moisture. With crisp, clean lines and impeccable style, aluminum or vinyl soffit and fascia will lend the perfect touch of refinement to your home while protecting the rooflines, gables and other hard-to-reach areas with a durable finish that’s easy to maintain.
We offer a wide range of soffit products to cover all possible applications from solid to vented panels. Alu-Rex’s T-Rex reinforced gutter hangers help keep eavestroughs and gutters clean for a maintenance-free option.
Functionally speaking, soffit protects your rafters from the weather elements. If your rafters are exposed in any areas, you’ll likely have mold buildup and rotting beams to replace. With vented soffit, air can flow through the vents to provide regular air circulation to your home.
Generally seen as a pain to clean, some home owners wonder why you even need eavestroughs. They actually serve a very important function, as they reroute water, snow and debris away from your home, preventing mold and rot. When water is left to settle on your roof, it has the opportunity to rust, rot, and cause mold depending on your roof’s material. Additionally, without eaves, water runs down your house and towards your foundation leading to cracks, moisture and structural damage to your home. By moving water away from your roof and foundation, your home can stay dry and maintain its structural integrity over the long-term.
Finally, fascia is the board mounted where your roof meets the sides of your house, creating an even appearance along the roof’s edge. It’s the finishing trim that carries your eavetroughs. This important element isn’t just a finishing touch, it also protects your roof and siding from water damage by creating a tight seal at the seam of your home.
