Causes of Soffit Repairs
Failed Vents. The underside of your roof provides one of the most important functions of the entire system: ventilation. When direct sunlight is absorbed by your roofing materials, the resulting heat is directed into your roof, then out of the soffit vents. If these vents become clogged or break, your home may start to accumulate too much heat. This places an enormous strain on your HVAC system, as it must compensate for the extra heat to maintain your cool home environment.
Elemental Corrosion. Certain soffit materials (such as wood shakes) are vulnerable to rot when exposed to high humidity. Over time, the integrity of the soffit may fail, leaving exposed cracks for moisture and pests to enter into. Repairing or replacing these rotted and damp sections quickly is very important. Ultraviolet light is dangerous for many types of the soffit as well. Radiation from the sun is absorbed by your roof, which eventually causes cracks.
Why Your Fascia Needs Repairs
A Loose Gutter System. The fascia (on the side of your roof) usually serves as the primary connection point for your gutter system. Should your gutter become loose, it can start to pull away from your roof, especially during intense thunderstorms. The additional pull places unnecessary stress on your fascia.
Corrosion from Water Damage. There’s a reason why homeowners are encouraged to clean out their gutters. Full gutters can spill over into your fascia during rainstorms and soften the material. This severely weakens the side of your roof if left uncleaned, and exposes it to water leaks and unwanted pests.
