Did you know that soffits, fascias, and eavestroughs all play important roles in the structural integrity of your business or home? In case you are wondering what these three items are, don’t worry we will provide you with a brief introduction into the vital part that they play in keeping your Collingwood home or business dry, beautiful, and energy-efficient. The fascia (also known as the fascia board) is a straight board that is attached to the lower edge of the roof. It is used to support the roof trusses and gutter system. The soffits and eavestroughs are customized to provide both a practical look and an important role in your home’s ecosystem.
What Is A Soffit?
Soffits are available in a wide variety of materials, finishes, and colors. They are attached to the outside walls of a commercial building or residential home and used to extend the fascia boards, while simultaneously covering up the undersides of any eves. Soffits typically have vents to create regular airflow, remove heat from attics, and prevent moisture from building up. By removing excess heat, soffits are able to significantly reduce the risk of mildew or mold growth and ice build up. They also help to prevent rotting and reduce the overall repair costs associated with mildew or mold remediation.
What are the benefits of a soffit?
Did you know that soffits have several benefits? These benefits can include:
- Reducing the monthly utility bill by removing unnecessary heat from attic spaces.
- Increasing curb appeal by providing a finished look to roof rafters and patios.
- Depending on the materials used, some soffits have minimal repair costs, never need to be painted, and can provide long-lasting and high-quality results.
What Is An Eavestrough?
Eavestroughs act like rain gutters during particularly wet seasons. In layman’s terms, the eavestrough will collect and carry water away from your roof and foundation. Installing the right type of eavestrough can be a tricky task. Fortunately, at the Ainger Group, we take the time to consider a wide range of environmental, structural, and seasonal-based factors to properly channel the excess water. For example, we survey the surrounding area to determine if foliage will block your eavestroughs or to ensure no future foundation issues will occur. If your home or business is surrounded by trees and plants, then we will recommend a gutter cleaning system that will prevent foliage, sticks, and other natural debris from entering the eavestroughs. Our eaves cleaning team can also help you to prepare for winter months. After all, we want to ensure that your eavestroughs are clear and working properly throughout all four seasons.
Do you need a new eavestrough?
The following checklist, coupled with our team of experts, can help you to more accurately determine if you need a new eavestrough installed.
- Water is sitting stagnant in the troughs after a rain.
- Ice is building up during the winter months.
- Clogs, overrun, or leaks are occurring during heavy rains.
- The eavestroughs are pulling away from both the soffits and the fascia board.
