The soffit and fascia are an important part of any residential roofing system. This is due to the fact that, not only do they provide a neat and finished look to the edges of your roof, but also because they prevent water, wind and humid air from rotting out your roof edges and rafters. Other than that, they can provide pest resistance for your home as well. With that in mind, it’s important that your soffit and fascia remain in good condition. But what exactly happens if you aren’t able to attend to the damage immediately?
Here’s why soffit and fascia damage should never be ignored.
What Happens When You Ignore Soffit and Fascia Damage
Soffits and fascias can often be damaged by the combination of time, weather and pests. Once they sustain damage, your roof and your home can be exposed to a whole host of problems. These problems usually include mold, rot and pest infestation. Apart from that, since your gutters are also attached to the fascia, your roofing contractor will also tell you that it’s possible your home’s gutter system may collapse and fall off if you don’t repair the damage your fascia sustained immediately.
What to Do When Your Soffit and Fascia Are Damaged
If your soffit and fascia sustain damage, it’s highly recommended that you avoid ignoring the problem and contact an expert roofer immediately. That way, the pros can determine just how extensive the damage is and conduct the necessary repairs before it becomes a bigger issue for you and your home.
