Your roof has both a soffit and a fascia. The soffit board is visible from a street level and ventilated to allow airflow, while the fascia board sits on top of the soffit board and carries the guttering. Soffit and fascia boards work together to ventilate the roof area and prevent condensation while supporting the roof tiles and carrying the guttering. It is vital that your fascia and soffit boards are strong, durable and built to last — the structure of your roof depends on them. Your roof’s soffit and fascia provide protection from the outside, keeping out rain, insects and animals. If you think your fascia or soffit needs replacing due to wear and tear or damage, you should seek assistance from a roofing expert as quickly as possible to prevent damp, infestations or structural issues.

What Are Soffit Boards?

Soffits protect your roof from the elements and bridge the gap between the siding and roof edge, ensuring your walls stay dry and condensation-free. They are usually made from aluminium or uPVC, which are far more durable and cost-effective than timber soffits, which are prone to damp and structural issues. Not all roofs have a soffit installed, but if your property has one, you can easily spot it — it sits along the edges of your roof and the adjacent walls of your house and is often visible from a street level. The soffit is usually ventilated, allowing air into the roof to prevent condensation and minimise the risk of timber decay.

What Is a Fascia Board?

The fascia board runs along the lower edge of your roof and is fixed directly to the lower ends of the roof trusses. It is a long, straight board that supports the lower edge of the bottom row of tiles and carries all the guttering — that’s why it’s essential your fascia board is strong, durable and fitted by an expert in roof installations. The fascia board gives your property an attractive finishing touch, elegantly protecting and concealing the roof rafters. Previously, most fascias were made from timber. These had to be repainted regularly, costing the homeowner money and time. Now, fascia boards are increasingly made from uPVC or aluminium, which provide long-lasting benefits, such as improved durability and long-term weatherproofing.
