About Soffit and Fascia
Soffit refers to the material that forms a ceiling from the top of an exterior wall to the outer edge of the roof, bridging the gap between a home’s siding and the roofline, otherwise known as the eaves. Fascia refers to a frieze or band that runs horizontally and is situated vertically under the roof edge. Or, in some cases, it forms the outer surface of a cornice. The fascia is exposed, meaning it is visible from the outside, while the soffit is hidden beneath the rafter tails. These architectural elements are traditionally made from materials like wood and aluminum, but synthetic and composite options are also available. Vinyl, for example, is a durable, low-maintenance option that comes in a variety of styles. It can be painted to match the color of your home’s exterior paint and trim.

Additionally, well-maintained gutters and flashing will help keep the fascia and soffit in good condition and keep your home protected.
